Overall the visit was great. We loved the vouchers for the bar (25% off food, 2 for 1 drinks) and the fun atmosphere. Only negative thing we noticed was the music from the club that goes until 4-6 in the morning, which makes it hard to sleep.

Great location, very helpful and friendly staff, nice atmosphere. I was travelling solo but met loads of people in the communal areas. Breakfast ok, not wonderful. Luggage storage has to be paid for but is pretty reasonable. Overall good.
Clean. Good atmosphere,great location. Defiantly recommend over other hostels in the area!
I very much enjoyed staying at The Winston, and would like to return soon. However, one recurring problem that myself and those in my group were unsatisfied with was the length of time it took for the food to arrive after ordering- I'm afraid it was unacceptably long. Other than that it is a fantastic and vibrant place to stay.

This is the second time I've stayed at the St. Christopher's Inn at the Winston in Amsterdam. As before, the stay was excellent. The staff is friendly and fun. The hostel sits over a bar that serves great food at a very good price - specially if you consider the discount guests receive. The location couldn't be better - you can walk from Centraal station without a problem and, from the hostel, you can explore the city by bike, on foot or using public transportation easily.
When I arrived, early that morning, they offered me to help myself to the buffet breakfast which was fantastic! Travel weary, it was lovely to be welcomed so warmly and a great start to Amsterdam. This hostel has a great location, plus a great bar to enjoy before or after going out for the evening (and terrific deals!). It's in the centre of town, so definitely a place for a good night, but has all the comforts you need as a traveler! (Including towels and shampoo on your bed, with a duvet!)

This hostel is in a fantastic location and was very easy to find using the directions provided. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The bar downstairs provides good drink and meal specials and the included breakfast was good. I would definitely stay here again.
I stayed in a 4 bed dorm, and I loved my time there. The bar downstairs is really cool, people are friendly and the rooms are really clean. There is free Wifi on the rooms and breakfast is really good! I would definitely recommend it!
Girls dorms were good - tons of stairs to climb up to get to the room though (keep that in mind if you have lots of luggage!). Great location at a decent price. Attached pub was always full of people.
Awesome hostel to stay in Amsterdam, right in the heart of the Red Light district. Very safe, clean. My experience was great
Best bar and hostel in amsterdam, deffinetely worth to stay :)
The facilities are far below anything I would have expected. There was major mold growing in our room, and a completely substandard shower, and a bathroom too small to turn around in. A sink so small you really can't wash your hands in. The mold is growing in the carpet where the shower area meets the carpet. Completely disgusting smell as well. The bald man is completely rude.
I thought this hostel was alright. Has a good bar downstairs and is clean but for some reason lacks atmnosphere.
The hostess is very rude, and the hostal is way too expensive for what they offer.
Party hostel right in town! Location is good and its relatively clean. Can be a bit chaotic but we were there for a good time so didn't bother us. And you get a discount on the bar food if you're staying in the hostel! A good choice.
Party hostel with nice bar (that has awesome rock music). Rooms themselves were so-so. My room actually smelled kinda bad but I was still able to sleep.
Great hostel, good location. The common area/bar closes at 1am so there ends up being a lot of guests hanging around on the road at the front. Would definitely stay again.
For sure the best of Amsterdam. A great hostel (clean, secure and with excellent showers, toilet and bed) right in the center of Amsterdam. Third time staying there and it keeps surprising in a good way every time. Besides the hostel itself, the next-door nightclub also owned by the hostel (you get discount), the bar and the smoking area are awesome pluses. Made good friends there in every stay.
Might just have the best complimentary breakfast ever. They even have fruit! You won't find a better location and it's always happening in the bar/restaurant in the hostel and the pub crawl stops there too. It's huge and there's no kitchen or common area so it's a little harder to meet people unless you want to buy drinks/food all night. Wifi doesn't really work well in the rooms, unfortunately. Also, there's a club next door that the pub crawls end at so get ready to party if you stay here
We really enjoyed our stay at The Winston. The location is perfect and right next to the Dam Square. The staff were very very helpful as expected from one of St Christopher's hostels. Definitely i would stay there again whenever i come back to Amsterdam.
