Great fun, nice place overall. Really liked having the bar downstairs. Only downside is no kitchen facilities at all, a couple of microwaves for example would have been great.

I will stay here again. Prime location and everything you need within short walking distance, St. Christopher's Amsterdam is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in

That was the worst hostel that I've ever stayed in. Everything was dirty - the bathroom, the room itself, the hallway. They don't have any lockers, just weird cages under the bed that would lock only with a big padlock, that you can't rent, you can only buy. My room was on the 5th floor, and the windows turned to the main street. The windows don't have double glazing, so you get a lot of noise during the night, and it gets really cold in the room, too. I just checked out two days earlier.

The hostel was in an amazing location, the bar and club downstairs were incredible. Sometimes hard to find a seat in the smoking area though. Food is great quality, and the discount is helpful! Rooms can get a bit cold though, even with the heating all the way up. Bit annoying we have to pay for lockers though, other hostels ive stayed in offer a free secure luggage room.

Thank you very much for your positive and constructive review! We're pleased that you made the most out of our central location. We will look into the temperature issue you had in that room. In regards to luggage room, we have tried this in the past, and it led to security and logistical problems. We hope having these paid for secure lockers hasn't affected your stay too much, and hope to see you again! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

It was great. the only thing I would have liked more would be the ability to get clean toiletries (like towels) at anytime.

Thank you very much for your review! We're pleased to read that your stay was great. You should be able to get a free towel from our reception at any time, and your towel should be replaced regularly. We will remind our staff about these procedures.

Great hostel close to the train station and in the red light district. A good bar downstairs, quite cheap too. My second stay here, would recommend.

This hostel was the best one I've ever stayed at. My only complaint is that there is no hostel guest wifi, just the public wifi that anyone in the very popular hostel bar (Belushi's) can use, thus making it very slow or impossible to use for us guests trying to Google places to go, for instance, a nightclub. The bar is a great place to hang out but the food quality does not match its ludicrous price. That said, this place is great to meet new people and party! *****LOCATION IS UNBEATABLE!!!*****

Thank you very much for your review! We appreciate your feedback, and will consider separating the Wi-Fi for our bar and our hostel guests. Were you aware that you get 25 % discount on our food when you'r staying with us? Thanks again for your feedback, we hope to see you again some day! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Really enjoyed my stay at the Winston. Facilities were clean and staff was cool. Having the bar & restaurant, plus smoking room, inside the hostel was a huge plus for me. Gets crowded at night as it is a popular place to go, so if you're looking to have a more low-key stay, this might not be the best place for you. But if you're looking to meet new people and be active at night, this is a great spot for you. Couldn't be in a better location either. Free breakfast in the morning was a huge plus.

The staff went out of their way to help out my girlfriend when she became quite ill on New Year's Eve when they were very busy and the next day I had staff members coming up to ask if she was OK which I really appreciated.

This place is centrally located in Amsterdam. There is a very happening club right below the hostel. The location itself is a huge plus for booking this place. We had a great time staying at this place.

I absolutely loved this place. I would happily stay here again. I was in the girls dorm that was in the building next to the hostel. So I didn't hear any noise. The only downside was that the wifi was weaker and spotty there. However, I really only wen t to my room to sleep so no problem. The staff is the absolute best andhanging out the the common room was a good time.

This is a party hostel in every sense of the word. Definitely caters to a younger crowd and as a 26 year old solo traveler it wasn't ideal for meeting people. The facilities are really nice and the breakfast and restaurant attached are affordable and tasty. Not sure if it was just the time I was there but there were lots of groups staying at the hostel, not many solo travelers. Great for younger groups of people, but in my experience not great for solo travelers.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your constructive feedback! We like to cater for all kinds of guests and travellers, but we can certainly appreciate that it's a bit easier to enjoy us if you are within a small group. That said, we do also get plenty of happy solo travellers. We'll try to accommodate for that type even more in the future, and will work on ideas on how to improve that. Thanks again! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

The staff were really friendly. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We were provided with some basic toiletries and fresh towels which was an unexpected pleasure as these are not often provided in hostels.
