Hostelworld says:

St Christopher's at the Winston has been recommended by Hostelworld staff as ideal for 'anyone who wants to stay close to the Red Light district and coffee shops'. This 'very exciting' hostel was voted the most popular in Amsterdam at the 2011 Hoscars, and it's not hard to see why; it includes a bar, beer garden and smoking area, with discounts on food and drink in the bar downstairs. There are daily walking tours and free ear plugs, plus an elevator-an uncommon feature in Amsterdam buildings and useful for carrying heavy luggage.

Property Information:

St. Christopher’s at The Winston is right in the middle of all the action Amsterdam has to offer. We’re a 5-10 minute walk from Central Station, the Red Light District is just outside our back garden, and we're 1 minute from Dam Square. The hostel serves up a rocking bar, beer garden and indoor smoking area with pool table. We offer free breakfast and WiFi is free throughout the building. All guests receive 25% discount on food at our lively Belushi's bar and restaurant, plus 2 for 1 drink deals!

We have a fun, diverse, international crew; many of whom speak multiple languages and are travelers just like you. They are happy to help you plan trips and book tickets for onward travel, and there is a free walking tour that picks up from the hostel and a pub crawl that passes through our bar each night.

Party or relax in our on-site Belushi's bar and restaurant where you'll find comfy couches, cool tunes, sports on TV, a pool-table, great food and drink promotions all year round. On our bar menu you'll find hearty and healthy food, including the best burgers in town, tasty salads, towering Nachos, killer spicy wings, and fresh daily specials. And to make things even better; all hotel/hostel guests get a 25% discount on the entire food menu! In regards to drinks we have 2-for-1 promos on Beck's, Vodka, Whiskey, Spiced Gold Rum, White Rum and Gin. Also look out for € 2 Jaegermeisters and € 1 Apple Sourz shots.

There is free Wi-Fi running smoothly throughout the entire building. If you didn’t bring your own device, we provide laptops for a small fee.

Check-in is at 2pm and check-out at 11am. We have a 24-hour front desk and secure luggage storage that can be used before check-in and after check-out for a small charge.

Between 8 and 10 in the morning every guest is invited to make good use of our free continental breakfast buffet that consists of breads, eggs, cereals, cold meats, cheese, jams, fruits, coffee and tea, juices and more.

Next door, you can party at the Winston Kingdom Nightclub. Each month the line up is steaming hot! The best live music and DJs, all night every night! www.winston.nl

    One of the things that makes our hostel unique is that we invite various upcoming designers to decorate each of our rooms with weird and interesting themes. None of our rooms look the same, and you could be sleeping in a movie-themed room, a psychedelic room or even a sex-oriented room!

    We have a very interesting team here at The Winston, with staff from several countries, in several age-groups. It's a nicely mixed bunch of people.

    We have the Red Light District in our backyard and lots of coffee shops, restaurants and crazy little shops are around us. Add to that a bar and a nightclub which are in our building on the ground floor, and you have all the ingredients to have a great time in Amsterdam. If you'd like to relax or see the interesting sights in Amsterdam, most options are on walking distance or a few minutes by tram.

    Good hostel.. close to amsterdam central.. its a bit noisy because of the bar and my 4 bed room was facing the street but its amsterdam! So fine with me. Hope there was plug/sucket each bed n small light for convenience - anyone who enter must turn on the central light n u cant charge ur mobile close to you. Not all hostel workers are that friendly but i dont mind it. Too huge heavy locker but not an issue. Hope when they change bed they clean the bathroom/wc as well. Small issues only.
