I spent one night in the Shelter, as my flight arrived late at night and I visited friends in Rotterdam the next day.
I went for the 16 (?) bed dorm. It was quite crowded, there were smallish lockers but not big enough for a...More
A lovely escape from the hustle and bustle of the Red Light district. No matter how crazy it is outside at night, it was quiet and peaceful in this place. Clean, friendly staff, nice kitchen for meals, and even a friendly hostel cat.

This hostel was fabulous. Right in the heart of the red-light district with a bike rental next door. The staff were super friendly, and the free breakfast was a brilliant extra. The dorm rooms were homely and the bathrooms were clean - no complaints :)...More
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.

No, the lockers are narrow. But there'll be room under the beds and just keep your valuables in the locker. You needed your own lock at this hostel, take a smaller to medium sized lock, not a big one! This place is great for location and the communal bathrooms means no wait for a shower, I highly recommend it :)
