  • Good location, good security, other aspects are average and just acceptable. Some staff are good but some are rude. Toilet and bath is a little bit cold.

  • Staff were lovely! Breakfast was really good. The only problem was that there wasn't that many toilets for the people we were so I had to wait a bit. But still, totally worth it and the location is really good.

  • We want to thank The Shelter City in Amsterdam. I think for the price it is the best hotel you could dream of. The staff is dedicated , and very helpful. The included breakfast is very unusual since it is homemade and delicious. The doritory are very clean and quite. We will come back to this place for sure if we are back in Amsterdam.
