The Jordaan area is full of charming streets, picturesque canals and fascinating hidden courtyards.
Experience real Amsterdam in the lively street markets, “brown” cafés and the tulip and cheese museums. This area is famous for hip and trendy boutiques as well as endless restaurants and cafés.
The Nieuwmarkt and the Convent of Bethany are just around the corner and the hostel is located is at the border of the famous Red Light District.
Dam square is 5 minutes' walk and Central Station (train) is 10 minutes on foot.
The nearest airport is Schiphol Airport, 19 km
Very good budget stay with clean rooms, staffs are very friendly and easily accessible location.
Good hostel for a short tourist stay as we did with my friend
They say it's in the red light district but it's not like that, I asked for it by mistake, confusing it with the other Shelter
Cold room , no curtains on the window next to me so i had the lights from the neighbors room directly in my eyes the whole night, i was in a dorm of 18 girls , i think that’s too much otherwise the room has to be expended , no space to stand in the room
Great Service, lovely staff, terrific pancakes!
I loved everything about the Shelter Jordan experience.
See you soon, I hope so!
The hostel is great! The location is perfect, near the city center (Dam 5min walk) the central station is 10min, the only problem is that there is only one catch for 4 beds ... So take a multiple power;) But I recommend without moderation!
Ma sœur et moi avons passé un très bon moment à l'auberge de jeunesse Shelter City. En plein centre d'Amsterdam, elle nous a offert un séjour très agréable : personnel souriant et serviable, possibilité de jouer au ping-pong, au baby-foot, à la guitare, au piano... plus un accès à une terrasse calme et ensoleillée. Que demander de plus ? Je recommande vivement cette auberge, merci encore pour votre accueil !
Une auberge au top ! Tout est pratique ! Plein centre ville, dortoirs confortables avec casiers (prévoir cadenas mais sinon ils en vendent), petit déjeuner agréable servi jusque 10h30, petite cours intérieure avec des tables de jardin et des canapés confortables, sanitaires propres, et personnel très sympathique ! Bref, j'ai adoré et je recommande !
Well located, the breakfast service was a bit slow
Amsterdam Oost is one of the most up and coming areas in Amsterdam, with an exciting mix of cultures you’re bound to find the vibrancy that you’re expecting from your trip. Full of excellent restaurants, cafes and bars nearby you’ll have even more options if you decide to head out beyond the hostel for food and drink. When planning your trip be sure to check what’s on in the park, as it often plays host to markets and events that you wouldn’t want to miss.
Our hostel is overlooking the Red Light District, in the heart of Amsterdam's nightlife hub.
Very comfortable room
Well located hostel
Welcoming and friendly staff
Restaurant ok (more vegetarian options for breakfast would be great. One of the dishes with eggs without salmon or bacon ...)
We were delighted with our stay, really very good value for money
Well located, near the tram stops. Happy people, nice people, good with life. Nice ambience, room in great condition, clean bed linen ... perfect
I liked to reach the GENRATOR inn in 20 minutes from the central station with the tram. In the evening after a day of sightseeing and exhibitions, it was nice to sit on a park bench just behind the hostel.
Hostel really top for a short stay: clean - modern - quiet Price of breakfast a bit too high
Super cafeteria, individual badges, very good reception, beautiful setting in a park, with metro and tram nearby, very comfortable beds, equipped bathroom and sufficiently large, furnished room with individual chests under the beds (only need a padlock ). In short, completely satisfied with my 3 nights
The location of the hostel and perfect and the staff is friendly
The bar and restaurant of the hostel are also very friendly
Very clean, quiet and the breakfast is very generous
Small negative point: there is no bathroom outside the room (to dry your hair without making noise it is complicated)
little tablets are missing near the beds to put your things at night
Good hostel. Cleanliness of the rooms very correct. The bar on the ground floor brings a big plus (good music and good food) A bit noisy but hey it's Amsterdam!
We had a really good time in this hostel!! The staff is really nice and helpful. Good location, near to the tramway and many good places to visit and to eat/drink. Go there!!
Very welcome and the staff has more than answered this in a difficult situation.
The presence of the bar on the ground floor makes this establishment very noisy.
Stay here to experience the real hustle and bustle of the city.
The Hans Brinker Hostel is nestled between the iconic canals of Amsterdam; an easy 10 minute walk to the famous red-light district and a 5 minute walk to the entertainment area around Leidseplein and the iconic museums at Museumplein.
Comfortable beds and awesome staff. Its full of backpackers and the vibe is amazing. Great crowd.
Walking distance to the central station and close to everywhere, you can just explore on foot. The rooms are tidy and kept clean. The staff are amazing there is always something going on about.
I stayed 1 night in a 4 bed room.
The bed was clean and confortable. Shower and toilets were clean too. There is a lot of people to meet in this hostel and the bar downstairs is good. Well located.
I recomend this hostel!
A very good hostel, ideally located, within walking distance of the center, museums and places to go out. We had a room of 4 with bathroom, very clean. Breakfast is offered every morning, super nice! Do not hesitate !
The general very well, the bedrooms complete and clean, the breakfast good. The worst is the shower.
Room with strict minimum (iron bunk beds + tiny bathroom). Very noisy (bad insulation, doors slamming at all times). But all this justifies the low price, which is interesting for small budgets.
Room + breakfast included. Good service for the price. I recommend this hostel. Note that the coffee shops are located opposite the city, Central Station side (A 15min walk from the hostel). Have a nice trip :)
If guests would like to explore the surroundings, they can visit Rembrandtplein and the Flower Market at 450 m away and Royal Palace Amsterdam at 750 m. Schiphol Airport is located at 15 km away.
There is a tram stop at 50 m from the property and it offers links to different sites of the city. Rembrandtplein is 1.2 km away and Red Light District is within a short walking distance.
The hostel is 1.5 km from Amsterdam Central Station, 1.4 km from Dam Square and 2 km from Leidseplein.
Van Gogh Museum is 2.5km away.
Amsterdam City Centre is great for travellers interested in architecture, city trips and walking.
Lots of choices of bars,restaurants and nightlife/clubs all around our hostel.
The rooms and facilities are very well appointed.
Satisfied with the stay, well located hostel, center and train station not far.
Well located but no atmosphere
Friendly hostel close to the red light but complicated access.
Clean, new beds, nice smiley staff friendly funny. 30 beds announced in the room but we were not shy. Very inexpensive ... Very nice!
clean in central Amsterdam
Very nice stay at this hostel with my friends. The hostel is close to everything and the staff is friendly. As for the room (private) mattresses were a little hard but the room still met our expectations. I recommend
The hostel is uncomfortable I had one of the worst moments of my life with a bathroom that is less than one square meter.
The site does not comply at all with what the publication offers in your application. They have no lockers. The common places do not match the photos. And, in our particular case, we bought accommodation in a 6-bunk bedroom and ended up sleeping in one of 12 bunk beds with just one bathroom. In addition the bathroom in question without going into hygiene details, had the sector of pipes and wiring without protections and exposed. Not recommended at all. I suggest inspection.
