Group reviews over the past few years

  • We enjoyed very much to stay in your hostel. There were nice and interesting people, and for a 4-days-trip your hostel claims our requirements! (24 from Germany, 3 nights at Shelter Jordan)
  • We had a very good staying in your hostel! we liked it  very much, that it is a Christian hostel, with no drugs and alcohol.  By the way, the coffee for breakfast was great! (22 from Germany, 2 nights at Shelter City)

  • As we already said when we were with you, we had an excellent time with you and look back on it with great pleasure. Soon I will send you an e-mail about booking next year…. (29 from Holland, 3 nights at Shelter Jordan)
  • I just wanted to write to you to say thank you for a wonderful weekend. . A nice, small hostel with no smoking or drinking meant that I felt completely comfortable bringing a group of boys to stay. I thought the hostel was very tasteful in it’s decor and our staff who do not have a faith felt completely comfortable throughout which I think is a great compliment. The option to participate in bible studies, church etc is there but it was not forced upon anyone which I think is a really great witness for those without a faith. The Shelter in Jordan was absolutely perfect for us and the boys really enjoyed their stay. The location was fantastic and the facilities inside were excellent. Finally, the staff throughout the weekend were so caring and friendly which made everyone feel very comfortable. I will most certainly come to stay with you again and will recommend the hostel for future trips to Amsterdam. (18 from UK, 2 nights at Shelter Jordan)

I hope that we will collaborate in the future (36 from Serbia, 3 nights at Shelter Jordan)

  • Thank you, our stay was excellent. The students had a great time and enjoyed the hostel experience very much. Particular highlights were the breakfast on Saturday and the Open Mic on Friday. Staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Everything worked brilliantly. The first year we came we stayed at another hostel. Shelter hostels are far more secure, the staff have been much more helpful and accommodating and students have enjoyed their experience without temptation. I would recommend you to others.
