Good hostel in a great location. Close to the central train station and a number of attractions. Handing the key into reception is a good idea for security however it can be tiresome when there is no one at reception or it's busy.

Thank you for your constructive feedback! it's good to see that you enjoyed our location! We understand that waiting for your key is not what you like to do when you're on holiday. When it's busy, please skip the line showing the orange card to reception, then they can quickly grab the key in between helping other guests. Thanks again for your review! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Lovely friendly staff, great vibe, perfect location - 5 mins from town, 20 mins from vondelpark+amsterdam zoo, and right in the heart of the red light district. Got around easily by foot, and great directions from helpful staff. Would definitely stay again.

An ok hostel. Was clean and in a good location. It was very hard to meet people at thos hostel, the only "common aren" is the bar, where you dont really know if the people sitting there are fellow travellers or not. It was also very hard to try and talk to people since the music was so loud. Would recommend this hostel if you are travelling in a group. The female dorms is also in a seperate building, making it more difficult to meet people.

Thank you very much for your valuable feedback. We are currently creating some ideas that should make it easier for guests to meet each other, and hope to have this running within the next couple of weeks. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

The hostel is perfect for the experience you want to have in amsterdam. The stay was made easy by the staff, they were very helpful with advice and the free breakfast in the morning was great.

Fantastic hostel, returning visitor and would not stay elsewhere, clean & warming Only inconvenience is the beer garden closure in the morning for cleaning.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for the positive review! Great to see that you are a happy returning guest. On Tuesday mornings we have to clean the garden because everybody is spilling beer and putting their cigarettes out on the ground all week. We want to keep it tidy. We're sorry for the inconvenience and we hope you understand. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Great hostel, in the heart of the action in the red light district.byou couldn't pick a better spot. Bar is great, cheap deals and food is really good too, we never went anywhere else! Wifi great, rooms spacious although get hot. Ridiculous to have to pay to store your luggage before you can check in, 4 euro for the day was very unimpressed. Only hostel I've ever had to pay.

Owner Comment (Hide)
It's nice to read how much you enjoyed your stay with us, especially our location and our bar. We're sorry to read that you weren't impressed with paying for lockers. In the past we tried a free luggage storage, but unfortunately this led to too many logistical and security issues. We hope you understand. Thanks for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Location was good. However, asked for a quieter room twice and was placed in rooms directly over outside bar area so very little sleep. Also no air con in rooms and it was very stuffy. If you want a party hostel then this is perfect. If you want a good nights sleep, forget it!

Thank you for your valuable feedback! It's good to read that you appreciated our location, and we're sorry that we haven't fulfilled your request. Our garden shuts at 10 PM on weekdays, so you shouldn't have had too many issues, but we'll investigate to see what happened. Thanks again for your review! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

The place is right next to the red light district, which is good and bad. The area is super touristy, and always very noisy. Our room was quite large. The bar is cool but the music on the weekend is too loud to be able to meet people. Also, the bar is popular for lots of travelers, not just the people staying in the hostel.

Really cool place if you're looking to party. Have a night club and a bar downstairs on the first floor with good deals on drinks. A little pricey, but everything is great. Best hostel you can stay in for Amsterdam

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you very much for your review! We're glad that you enjoyed the party. We understand and we're sorry that you thought we were a bit pricey. The operation costs in Amsterdam are very high, and if you'd compare us to other hostels you'll notice that we're fairly reasonably priced. Thanks again for your feedback! We hope to see you again some day. - St. Christopher's at The Winston

I stayed here for a few nights to end my Eurotrip and really enjoyed it. He reception and bar staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect and only a 5 min walk to Centraal Station. This place has a cool atmosphere and not filled with pot heads like other popular places. I will stay again next time I'm in town :)

Your staff were appeared to really enjoy what they were doing. They were pleasant, accommodating, and patient. For me this goes a long way - well done. It was a little noisy - not so much the bar below but the crew cleaning it up between 3 and 4am. There was no place to prepare a meal. I prefer this option when I travel.

It's great to see that you noticed that our staff enjoy their job, and we'll pass on your comments! We're sorry that the noise from downstairs has inconvenienced you between those times, and we'll investigate what happened. Next time you're in Amsterdam, we'd suggest having a look at one of the Flying Pig Hostels. They have a similar atmosphere, and also a guest kitchen. Thanks for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Good place to stay if you're looking for somewhere convenient, affordable and with a party atmosphere. Close to coffeeshops and with the bar and nightclub downstairs a night out is just downstairs.

The location is perfect. The hostel has a bar and a club. Its totally fun there. The doors etc. have a good isolation. The noice from the bar and club didn't disturb me. However all the voice from the streets could be loud even until 4 5 oclock. I found bad that the hostel doesnt have a common facility except the bar which is not a common facility because you cannot take your own food and drink or just sit. In the bar its expected that you buy sth. Discounts were good though

Thank you for your review! It's good to see that you had fun in our hostel, and that you appreciated our location. Please note in regards to the street noise that we offer free ear plugs at reception, which might just help with sleeping a bit better. We are sorry that you weren't allowed your own food. We do actually allow our hostel guests to eat their own food in our bar, and we're sorry that some staff were not aware of that. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

The Hostel is located in the very center of amsterdam, great location, in no time you may walk to the main areas and visit tourist areas. WiFi is good, and the room you get to share the bathroom only with the guys in your room. Bring a padlock, its needed for your locker, unless it will cost you around 3 euros. Brakefast not an international one, only boiled eggs, no option for scramble. But overall its good. Its a little loud at night beacause of its location, a lot of parties all around.

Thank you very much for your feedback! It's good to see that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our free continental breakfast does indeed not contain scrambled eggs. We do, however, have a breakfast menu if you'd prefer a cooked breakfast over our free breakfast. Thanks again for your review! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

The main door to the corridor where my room was located had a sensor lock on it, but the door would push open so it wasn't secure. But the main room door worked well. The shower was not the cleanest but not bad. This hostel is in a wonderful location!! It's a loud party hostel so if you are a light sleeper bring eat plugs. I'm not and was too drunk to care about noise. The breakfast was also wonderful and free! I would stay here again!!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for your valuable feedback! The sensor locks on the corridor doors are new, because we want to make the place extra safe. The software has yet to be installed, which is why for now it is still the way it was. We do, however, have a reception that maintains your safety, and the room doors are securely locked. We're glad to read that you slept well and that you enjoyed our breakfast. Thanks again for your review! - St. Christopher's at The Winston
