Activities in Our Hostels in Amsterdam
We host a wonderful variety of events in our hostels in Amsterdam. We have two Christian hostels in Amsterdam: the Shelter City Hostel and the Shelter Jordan Amsterdam Hostel. In both of our hostels in Amsterdam, we organize an activity almost every evening because we want to get to know you, help you meet other travellers, and make the most out of your time in Amsterdam. This can be a free dinner, a movie night, or a Dutch Food Tasting Night. Book your bed now and find out which activities we’ll have while you’re here!
Shelter Hostels Amsterdam: a Home Away from Home
We want to be a place where you feel at home. That is where our name “Shelter Hostels Amsterdam” comes from. Both of our hostels in Amsterdam have a cozy café and a garden too – where you can read a book, meet other travelers, play a game, enjoy the sun, and hang out.
The Activities in Our Hostels in Amsterdam
The Shelter City and Shelter Jordan Hostels in Amsterdam are places where you can meet new people. We believe that meeting new people while travelling is just as exciting as getting to know a new city. Besides, we know from our own experience that travelling can be tiring, and on some days hanging out in the hostel is more attractive than exploring new places.
Whatever you are up to, we want you to enjoy your stay here as much as possible! That’s why we offer different activities in our hostels to help you get connected.
Besides our regular activities listed below, check out the activity board in the café to stay up to date! The activities in both of our hostels in Amsterdam are free. Join us!
