Christian Youth Hostel 'The Shelter Jordan'

Hostel in Jordaan & the West

Putting up with the 'no everything' (drinking, smoking, partying) policy at this 96-bed hostel isn't hard, because it's such a gem. Single-sex dorms are quiet and clean, there's a piano, a courtyard garden and the breakfasts – especially the fluffy pancakes – are great. The cafe serves cheap meals the rest of the day.
