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

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.

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

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 :)

This hostel was in a great location (the only downside is if you are trying to sleep, sometimes it is loud outside), really close to attractions and in the middle of everything. Our room was very spacious and the beds were very comfortable and clean for the most part - I should add though that I found blood on my blanket that was not mine... Other than that, I had a great stay.

Thank you for your review! It's great to see that you made the most out of our central and lively location. We are concerned to read that you found blood on your blanket. We hope this got there after we cleaned the bed, but if you think it didn't we sincerely apologize for that! Thanks again for your feedback, we hope you'll stay with us again! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

Party hostel. There is no ac in the rooms which makes it get very hot in the summer. Shower was very poor. Not overall a fun place to stay if you are looking to come to Amsterdam. Many of the pub crawls come to the bar so it's a pretty fun enviornment

Great location, facilities, atmosphere and great staff! Shout out to Kieth, sound as a pound! I felt very welcome. Would recommend you have drinks in the bar and mingle before hit the town. Rooms were very clean and spacious. I did not experience any claustrophobia. Best hostel location in Amsterdam I have visited. Would recommend St Christopher's at The Winston to anyone looking to have the "Amsterdam experience". You will not be disappointed. Also the great breakfast is a nice touch too.

This place was pretty great in retrospect. There were things I didn't care for while I was there like being woken up by your neighbors being loud on the balcony (the balcony is shared among the floor and each room has a door out to it). I ended up switching hostels and immediately regretted it. This place was actually pretty decent. It was in a prime location for anything you'd likely be seeing in Amsterdam and the place was pretty good. Would go back.

Thank you very much for your very honest review! Your words are even more valuable for our future guests, since you tried more than one hostel in Amsterdam. Please note that we offer free ear plugs in reception, which might just help you with sleeping in an hour or two more. Thanks again for your comments! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

Stayed in a private room with ensuite. Clean room, lots of space. Location is great can't be beaten really. It is a little bit of a hike from the main station if you are carrying your pack so plan ahead and make sure you know the best route. Great bar (and great food) downstairs. And fabulous staff who will take care of you (thanks for mailing my postcards!) Would definitely stay there again.

Thank you very much for your review! It's great to see all your positive comments. If you know the best route it's only 5 or 10 minutes walk, We hope you didn't make too much of a detour. We hope you'll stay with us again, next time you know where to go. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

Cool hostel in an awesome location. If you want peace and quiet this is not your option, but if you come to party give it a go. I would definitely recommend the hostel to add some basic simple necessities though, like hooks in the bathrooms or a couple of shelves. I had to figure out where to put my clothes when I was taking a shower. It's not like it's anything costly, so c'mon guys.

Great location. The bar food is good, with special offers on drinks. Felt safe and slept well on the beds. The in-dorm toilets are tiny though, and lockers are not easy to manouvre. Good stay overall.

Thank you very much for your review! It's good to see that you enjoyed the location we're in and that you made the most of our bar deals. We are sorry that the toilet was a bit smaller than you would've liked, and that you didn't find the lockers easy to move. We hope it didn't affect your stay too much, and would like to see you back again next time you're in Amsterdam! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

St. Christopher's was more like a budget hotel than a hostel. There is a smoking room and a bar located on site but you aren't allowed to bring your own alcohol onto the premises so you have to buy their booze. The atmosphere in the place is good, very relaxed and has a nice garden but the place is WAY overpriced. Plus the deals you get (2 for 1 at the bar) aren't legit. It's 2 Becks bottles for 5 euros which is the same as paying for 2 Becks. Also the rooms were a bit dingy for the price.

Thanks for your review! It's good to see you enjoyed our atmosphere. We have a full bar license which means everyone can enjoy our bar. Unfortunately that license doesn't allow for people to drink their own alcohol in the bar. Sorry about that. Regarding the 2 for 1 deal there must have been some confusion in the way it was explained to you. A bottle of Becks is €5, but until 9PM everyday you get 2 Becks for €5, one is free. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

Obviously it is quite expensive, that is the main problem of Amsterdam. But we had a very good stay, it was a nice hostel with breakfast included. Rooms were clean with big lockers for a backpack. Its location is absolutely perfect. But we didn't like the idea of having the only toilets in the room. It was quite uncomfortable to do your needs in super tiny toilet inside your room with 8 people right outside the door. We also had to wait a bit for the showers, as there was only one in each room.

Thank you very much for your review! It's great to see that you made the most out of our central location. We are sorry that there's only 1 toilet and 1 shower in the room, which can be a bit inconvenient when everybody wants to get ready at the same time. We hope it hasn't affected your stay too much, and that you will return to us next time you are in Amsterdam. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

Would definitely recommend this hostel. Great location, great dorms with ensuite bathroom - shampoo sachets were a nice touch, good breakfast. Atmosphere was really sociable too with the bar and cafe attached. Was only able to stay one night here and then had to move down the road to meeting point hostel. St Christopher's was by far the better option and better value for money!
