There is only a pub in the hostel, there isn't any kitchen or any other sitting room. If you don''t want to hang out in a pub you have to stay on your bed. Basic logic of a hostel is haveing a kitchen couse people who choose hostel for holiday also don't want to spend lots of money for meal. So there should be some place to cook meal. Any way the pub meal and drink price are reasonably priced. They do %25 discount for meal. Staff behave so automatic, don't want to asked to them any question.

Its just right at the city centre and also close to the central station. So there is nothing to judge about the location. Especially when we walk out from the hostel, there are already the coffe shops and red light district. We had so much fun there. And also just less than 5 mins walk, we can reach the tram and we can go wherever out of the city we want. Staffs are helpful too. Breakfast is included and it was great. But if the hostel can provide shampoo and soap everyday will be much better.

Very good location right near the main train station and easy walking distance to all the main attractions. Lockers and ensuite bathrooms in the rooms which was very nice and they changed the bed sheets every day. The bar downstairs was great for meeting people.

Good base to explore Amsterdam from but it felt more like a cheap hotel. Rooms are clean with towels provided daily. Our main gripe was that it was extremely noisy, even with earplugs in (available free of charge downstairs). Our room had windows facing the Main Street that would not shut properly, letting in the noise and the cold. We changed rooms but found this made little difference. Also, the club downstairs goes all night/day. No common room made it hard to meet others.

Location is situated right in the center of the red light district inside the bar Belushi's, which is a privately owned bar where you receive 'discounts' on drinks and food (usually 25% :0 ). Breakfast was fairly good compared to other hostels. Boiled eggs, ham, cereal, OJ, milk, Coffee, Hot chocolate, several types of bread, jam and butter. The atmosphere is not situated for solo travelers, much so for larger groups and the hostel is filled with all ages mostly older (above 29).

Great location and very clean rooms. The breakfast was great and had a ton of variety which made the rooms well worth the money.

Very much a party door, with a popular bar downstaris. Right in red light district and short walking distance to many of the major attractions

Great location, really really cool bar staff (they're always busy working but dont let that put you off. Chat with them and you'll see), pool table (expensive though), decent drink specials, GREAT hangover breakfasts. Rooms are cleaned daily. I thought the towels, soap, and shampoo was a nice touch. Strict (In a good way) security; sort of the not really hard to sneak a friend in with my pass/booking slip, but keep all the crazies out. Can smoke inside and listen to kickass music.

I had a great time, met lost of people and it's really easy to find your way back. The only issue was a leak from the roof which put a dampener on things

Such an amazing place, and a wonderful staff. My brother and I enjoyed every minute of our stay, and will only choose the Winston from now on, every time we come to visit.

Had a great stay here, beds were super comfy and helpful staff! Only one small problem, only one of the power points in our room worked. Other than that, great

Very centrally located near the shopping area and red light district. Simple breakfast but enough to get you on your way. Fun, knowledgable, multi-national staff. Bed was comfy with a super cozy comforter (an upgrade to most hostels which offer just a blanket). Belushi's is a great spot to meet people, but closes at midnight or so, and the staff directs you towards the nightclub next door which has a compulsory coat check. The room decor adds a special flare - I had Bob Marley and his wisdom.
