The hostel is very close to places to eat, 15 minutes walking to Amsterdam Centraal, and 15 -20 minutes walking to the main attractions of the city. The staff are really nice, always able to give any information that we need. In the rooms under the beds have a big place to store our things. Furthermore, extra points for their breakfast. Fruits and juice, loved it! Bad things: the strong smell of pot inside the room, bathroom need extra cleaning. Overall, I would recommend this accommodation.

When we arrived the room was already occupied however didnt seem that anyone had cleaned it before our arrival. The people we were sharing the room with had been using our closets (which were cages under the beds) so we had to wait for them to come back in order to put our things away. The staff at the reception always seemed busy and didnt indicate the best things to do in town. Breakfast which was included however was good. Cold cuts and bread with juice and marmelade was the only good thing.

I felt very safe at this hostel with the main door being locked late at night in addition to staff checking if everyone coming in had their room card and papers. Great round the clock service as one of the staff quickly called a taxi for me at 5am and I didn't miss my flight.

Good hostel with a great bar. Someone puked in our hallway and it wasn't cleaned

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you very much for your review. We are pleased to see that you found us to be a good hostel. We are sorry that we weren't quick enough with cleaning something in the hallway. For future reference we would ask to inform our reception team about any such issues during a future stay, so we can act on it quicker. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Overall, excellent hostel. It is loud since the bar is hopping all the time and there is a club attached so if you are a light sleeper, I don't suggest staying here. They do give free ear plugs which is nice. I just listened to my music and fell asleep. Regardless, the room was nice and clean. I stayed in the 4 female dorm which was the best call of my life....that area is separate from the rest so it might not be as loud but sure not as crowded.

The hostel is good value for money, but if your a solo traveller it's not ideal...there's not social activities and most of the people there are there for work or looking for permanent place to stay.

Thank you for your feedback! We are interested in your comments and would always look for things to improve our atmosphere with. Please note that we have a new App for Iphone users, with which they can chat with guests who are in the hostel at that very moment. Please check it out! We will also be looking for other ways to make our bar even more sociable. Thanks again!- St. Christopher's at The WInston

The hostel was nice with great lockers and smoking areas. I was unfortunately put in a room above the nightclub meaning the walls would shake until at least 3 am. From others in the hostel this isn't a common thing but just double check at reception if you won't be partying. Otherwise it was great.

A luggage room would have been nice - I know there are lockers, but they were a bit expensive. Staff could have been friendlier and the breakfast needed a bit more tending - things ran out quickly and took a while to be replenished.

Great stay, wished the lounge area stayed open longer though!

Thank you for your review! We're glad that you had a great stay. Unfortunately our bar opening times are not up to us, but we are bound by the rules of our local government. We hope it hasn't affected your stay too much, and that you found another place to hang after our closing time. Thanks again! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

The staff were wonderful, friendly and helpful, from the check in staff to the bar tenders. We felt very welcome there, probably moreso than any other hostel. The food is good, the rooms are clean and the hostel has a fun culture.

The beds need kind of a backplate for the head pillows are falling down, also plugs needs a stand to put phones, i was very disappointed when they close the smoking room very early, i dont think i will go because of that,

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you very much for your feedback! We will take the things you said on board going forward. In regards to the opening times of our smoking room, unfortunately our hands are tied, as we're not allowed to keep it open any longer by the government, and we're very sorry about that. Thanks again for your review! - St. Christopher's at The Winston
