You really can't find a better place to stay in Amsterdam. Very safe, secure and clean. This is my second time at St Chris and if I am ever in Amsterdam again I will absolutely stay here.

Great location, great food at a reasonable price on site. Rooms were comfortable enough, the only fault was that the room we were in (7 of us) was like a sauna and only had one fan (no aircon). Would still recommend though.

Thank you for your review! It's good to see that you made the most of our location and our discounts on food that are for our guests only! The room you stayed in does actually have an air con. We are sorry if it was acting up whilst you were staying here. We will look into the situation. Thanks for making us aware of this! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

The twin room is too small for 2 people. The shower as well.. So tiny! Beside that the place is good.

Fantastic location for anyone wanting to visit amsterdam. Only a 5 minute walk from amsterdam central and located within the red light district. Rooms were air conditioned, had private toilets and showers in the rooms. The bar area was always lively and the food and drink on offer was definitely worth the money with a 25% off resident discount on food.

Good hostel, the bar was always busy at night, rooms were good. Location is incredible, right in the red light district and close to the train station. I would stay here again.

Great hostel would definitely recommend if you are in Amsterdam looking for a great place at a very reasonable price. Location is in the Red Light district but is perfect because it is about a block over from the main street of the Red Light.

I love St Christophers. Great place, really made me feel safe and secure in my belongings while I trawled through the coffee shops of the city. St Chris is part of a chain, and I've never had a problem at any that I've stayed at. The breakfast here is above standards. Stay here. The only problem I had is the showers are lipless so water usually ended up all over the food when other's weren't as considerate.

It's a great central hostel that's clean and neat. We booked a double room as it was the last night of our trip.the room was small but clean.Though it was only afterwards I realised its was almost as dear as a hotel room in Amsterdam .

Thank you very much for your review. It's good that you valued our location and appreciated our standard of cleanliness. Amsterdam is an expensive city, but we've taken note of your comment about our price. We hope the extra facilities we offer in comparison to a hotel, like our bar, our club, discounts on food and interesting 2 for 1 drink deals for our guests provided you with some extra value and, more importantly, a good time. Thanks again for your feedback - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

The 8 bed dorm has private showers and toilet, which is great. Easy access from the bar to the rooms and the location is amazing!

Enjoyed my stay at this hostel..even they have free breakfast too so its quite worth it but only thing I didn't like was it is difficult to interact with the other people as it was quite a huge hostel

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you very much for your review! It's good to see that you made the most out of our free breakfast. We are indeed rather large, but we aim to cater for interaction between fellow travelers as well, since this is in our opinion a vital part of everybody's journey to another country. We are sorry this wasn't your experience of the hostel. We hope you'd give it another try. Thanks again for your feedback. - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

Definitely would recommend this place if you like being around everything that is happening. It's a great central hostel that's clean and neat. We booked a double room since it was towards the end of our trip. The room was small but clean. You get room service everyday as well as great breakfast. Solid hostel.

Thank you very much for your review! We appreciate the kind words. We would just like to add that with room service you probably mean that we clean the room daily. We don't offer room service in regards to food or drinks. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

It's a very nice place for young people but if you only need a place to rest I think it isn't good because it's really noise I couldn't sleep until 4 or 5am.... but in general it's good.

Thank you for your feedback! We hope to cater to any type of traveler, but because we are in the heart of all the action of Amsterdam and we have a bar and a club ourselves, we can certainly appreciate your comment about the noise in the area. We hope it hasn't affected your stay too much. Please note that we offer free ear plugs in our reception. Thanks again for your review! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

The only problem was that the room is noisy because there is a night club next to the hostel.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your review! We do understand that we are in a very busy area and that there's also a bit of noise coming from our bar and our club. We are sorry about that, and hope it hasn't affected your stay too much. Please note that we offer free ear plugs in reception. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

If I check-in online, I should receive priority at check-in, but it was not the case.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry to hear that the process of checking in was not as speedy as you would've expected, seeing that you checked in online and should be able to skip the line. We will revise our procedure in order to have this running more smoothly. Thanks again for your comments! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

stunning location in the very hearth of the city, I was in the 8 bed dormitoy, that was more likely a double 4 bed dormitory, so very quiet and neat. Breakfast is good, and also all the services, like the luggage room, you pay for it, but is really well organized and easy to selfmanage when you need it.

Me and my friend booked a short trip away to the Dam and stayed at The Winston after reading other great reviews on here. Great location, great food, great people and without a doubt a great party! We reccommend Smokeys and Winston Kingdom for a fantastic night. Don't forget to pick up the voucher cards by the desk for ideas/ money off places to go :)
