Hey, Great to see you made the most of our central location. Amsterdam is small city, but even then, it still helps a lot to have all the major attractions right on your doorstep. Cheers,

i hope the hostel can have its own entrance

Hey there, Thanks for the feedback. Many of our guess like having our bar and restaurant all under one roof, and it is especially convenient for our free breakfast buffet each morning. However, we can appreciate that the entrance way can get a little busy at times and hope you were still able to enjoy your time in our hostel and in the city itself, Thanks again for writing,

Not the best place to stay if you're looking for a quiet night, but this is the place if you want to party!

Excellent location, good food and attentive staff. The shower space is too tight and downstairs is quite noisy at night, but the good points outnumber the bad ones.

Pros: Good breakfast. Good location, close to red light district and shopping streets. Fresh towel provided everyday. Cons: The room (5beds mixed dorm) got heat up and become very warm during the day, it is hard to rest or take a nap in the afternoon. The toilet wasn't clean daily. We stayed for 3 days and noticed slow draining shower. On the last day, it got worse and the bathroom was flooded. We couldn't shower before checkout. It was disgusting.

Excellent central location at a really good price. Rooms cleaned daily to a very high standard. The downstairs smoking room with pool table was always lively,bar prices reasonable for Amsterdam and excellent food. The staff were really helpful and always had a smile on there faces. We enjoyed our stay so much we will be booking another week here for next year.

Hello mate, We love to see familiar faces here at The Winston. It's one of the best things you'll find about our bar here too; a good mix of locals, expats, tourists and regulars - plus it makes check-in easy too when you guys know our discounts and free breakfast times as good as we do ; ) Great that you have decided to leave us a review as well. Makes a huge difference to the team here. See you next time mate, Shots on the house! Cheers,

If there was a way to rate this hostel higher than 100% I would. I've even booked my next two locations at St Christopher's hostel cause I was so pleased with every aspect.

Hey there. If we could rate your review higher than 100% then we would do the same ; ) Awesome that you were inspired by your time with us to book at our other sites. We're sure that you'll enjoy each as much as you did your time with us! Don't forget to book via our own website if you are hitting up multiple destinations, as you can save 10% on each stay this way ; ) Thanks for writing and enjoy your European trip

Hey. So cool you've checked out our sites in other cities too. Guess you can see why we often have people stay with us who've been doing the St Christopher's European tour ; ) Don't forget that you can make reservations for other other sites at any of our reception desks as well! Thanks for writing

Hey there. We're very pleased to read that you took advantage of our central location. So true that we really are in the middle of all the action in the city - including the best bakeries and of course the Red Light District ; ) Thanks for taking the time to write. Safe travels

Pros: - Beds were extremely comfortable and the rooms were clean. - Convenient and safe location (in the RLD) - only 10min from Amsterdam Centraal station - Good food and cheap drinks at the bar in the hostel - The free breakfast was simple but good Cons: - Bathroom was tiny, like an airplane bathroom. There needs to be more bathrooms in the hallways. - The WiFi barely worked All things considered it's still great value for money and I'd highly recommend this hostel to anyone

Hey. Short, sweet and to the point. We love it! And we love our breakfast too. Nothing more important than a full stomach ahead of a busy day sightseeing in Amsterdam. Thanks for writing

Hostel was just fantastic. Only thing that I would have liked is a kitchen for travellers at the hostel.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hello. Great to see you enjoyed your time with us. It is indeed true that we do not have a communal kitchen, but we feel that we make up for it with our fantastic discounts for our guests in our awesome Belushi's bar and restaurant. We would highly recommend the Flying Pig hostels for those backpackers who need to be able to cook for themselves. Good to see that you were still able to enjoy yourself anyway : ) Thanks again

Well located, right in red light district amoungst all the action you could want. Bar and smoking sections are awesome, not as good for meeting people when compared to other St Chrostophers, but still have a great atmosphere. Only complaint is wifi, pretty much unusable, and only available in bar. Sick place otherwise!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hey there. Thanks for getting back to us. Always good to know about your experiences so we can grow and better ourselves for our future guests. Going through some big changes with the Wi-Fi this month and hope it didn't inconvenience you during your stay too much. Should be some of the best coverage in town come summer : ) Glad you enjoyed yourself. Cheers
