This place is better than most 1 or even 2 star hotels. The breakfast is really good and solid. Great place!

That's a great compliment, thank you very much! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

The hostel is well located, close to the central station and the Dam square, very clean and with an excellent character and atmosphere. Value for money wise, its an excellent option when visiting Amsterdam. The hostel's staff is quite polite, helpful and attentive but unfortunately this can not be said for the bar's staff. Another minor drawback is that if you are leaving your stuff prior of after you lodging to the hostel, you have to pay for the lockers as there is no storage room available.

Best hostel we stayed at on our Eurotrip. The night life rock's with awesome music and a great vibe in the hostel bar. The staff where all very friendly and always willing to help and assist with any queries. Definitely the place to stay at when you are visiting Amsterdam.

Nice place, though obviously a party hostel. If I hadn't been hanging out late with roommates I might not have had the best experience with my dorm mates. The hostel itself is really nice though, clean, good facilities, great location and friendly, very helpful staff. Recommended.

Excellent atmosphere at the hostel with a bar, club and nice social arena on the ground floor. Food in bar is quite reasonably priced, but was not that tasty. Hostel is very central! Note: we had a private room so the comments about noise, cleanliness etc may vary compared to the regular dorm rooms. Room was nice and clean with some special "art" on the wall. Noise not that big of an issue really, would think it would be worse with the bar downstairs and club as a neighbour to the hostel.

We're pleased to read that you enjoyed the atmosphere in our hostel, and that you made the most out of our location! We're surprised and concerned to read that you didn't quite enjoy the food. Most people love our food, so we're wondering what happened. We'll get in touch with you personally in order to get a bit more information. Thanks for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Really nice hostel/hotel in heart of the Red Light district. Felt safe. Excellent, friendly staff. Great free breakfast. Bar is okay but better just down the road. Stayed one night in 8 bed dorm ensuite and two in private. Dorm was nice, with individual lockers, and plugs/lights in each bunk, but room so small, felt on top of each other. Had a great time, would stay again!

Best hostel in Amsterdam if your goal is to meet friendly young travelers looking for a good time and a lively nightlife. Not the cheapest hostel I've used, but worth the price. Amenities are good for the hostel. Staff takes the job seriously. Well run business. The hostel is fused with a very popular bar and smoking room which provides an unparalleled experience and chill atmosphere.

Well quite simply one of the best..... As far as staying in Hostels, I don't think it will get much better.

Location is within the red light district, but is not dangerous or whatever, just 5-10 min walking to the train central station and the same to Dam Square. You have locker under your bed but you need a padlock to lock it. The first floor is a bar so is not very "homy" hostel and is VERY noisy by night if you want to go party until early morning you will be good, if not, could be annoying. Breakfast (8am-10am) is SO GOOD! very complete with a lot of different things.

It's good to see that you made the most out of our location and that you enjoyed the breakfast so much! Being in a busy area and having a bar and a club in our building we understand that it can be a bit loud at times, and we're sorry about that. Please note that we offer free ear plugs in our reception desk, which might just see you through an extra few hours of sleep. Thanks for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Excellent Hostel. Very friendly staff. Great Value for money. Facilities in room were average, however in the rest of the hostel they were great. Excellent shower, however, one small mirror in the bathroom is not sufficient for a 6 person room. A full length mirror would have been useful. 2 out of 4 sockets did not work in the room. 3 young girls matched to 3 much older men in the mixed dorm room, perhaps this could have been organised better as to where people are placed in rooms.

Thank you very much for your review! We appreciate you comments and will definitely take them on board. Our maintenance team will look into your feedback about the room. In regards to placing people in rooms, unfortunately there's not a whole lot we can do about this, since for logistic reasons we often have to allocate our bookings in advance, and we don't know the age of our guests prior to their arrival. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Good hostel of you're wanting a clean room for the night, but it's not the most social place The only social area is the bar and smoking area which is more like a club at night.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for leaving a review! We are happy that you appreciated the cleanliness of our hostel. We feel like we cater for people to meet other travelers, but we can certainly understand that our bar isn't suitable for everyone. If you'd come to Amsterdam on a future occasion we would recommend one of The Flying Pig hostels, which might be more to your liking. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

One of the best hostels I've been (Europe and Australia). Comfortable dorms, WC and shower inside, towel included. Con: has no kitchen, although the bar is cool, great atmosphere. I totally recomend it. But be sure not to stay all your visit in Warmoesstraat, most "touristful" street in ADam. It's such a beautiful city with plenty of things to visit!!

Definitely the best hostel I have been to. Amazing breakfast, best location near RLD and an indoor smoking area. What else do you need?
