Amsterdam Hostels since 1971

Two cozy hostels in the heart of Amsterdam

Hi there! Great to see that you’ve found us! Welcome to the Shelter Hostels in Amsterdam. Our Amsterdam hostels are not just hostels. Ever since 1971, the hostels are our home, that we would love to share with you. We hope that you will experience our hostels in Amsterdam as a home away from home as well.

We love connecting with people and exchanging stories: from personal life stories to stories of God. Everyone has a drive, intention, story, opinion, and belief. And we would love to hear more about yours! Guests in our Amsterdam hostels often tell us that the hostels are like a warm bath, a breath of fresh air. We want to be a place for meeting new people, a shelter for finding rest.

RECOMMENDED PLACES TO VISIT IN AMSTERDAM

Recommendations for your trip from the volunteers of our hostels in Amsterdam!

Rent a bike!

The best way to explore Amsterdam is by bike. The city is quite small so by bike you will be able to see the entire city in a few days. If you can ride one, rent one!

IJ-hallen

Once a month, almost all of Amsterdam boards the ferry behind Centraal Station and streams towards the IJ-Hallen in Amsterdam North. Here you find the biggest flea market (and best shopping) in Europe!
