Great place to stay, if anyone is planning a week holiday then it may possibly not be suitable. I love the place for a two/three night stay as this is the second time I've been. I think you need a bit more space if you were to be there longer (that's probably a girl thing - too many clothes)

The location could not have been any better. Right in the middle of the town and very close to the main train station. The staff was very helpful. The hostel is connected to their bar which can make it very loud and at one point bar guests were walking around in the hostel halls which made the stay seem less secure. Overall, I would for sure stay at this hostel again and again. The breakfast was fabulous, the best we had ever seen at a hoste

Thank you very much for your review! We are happy to read that you made the most out of our location and our breakfast! We have 24 hour reception and take our security very seriously, so we're concerned about the fact that you had the feeling that at one point there were non-hostel guests in the hostel area. We will contact you personally to find out more about this. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

Only two things I could find fault with. The toilet in the room was really cramped compared to the shower area. The sink was so small that when the tap was turned on the water splashed out over the edge and onto the floor. There is no kitchen which sucks because Amsterdam is expensive enough. However if you read the overview of the hostel beforehand you would be aware of it. My bad. Location amazing, staff at front desk great, and an awesome bar with great music and a smoking room! Definite yes!

Thank you very much for the review! It's great to read you made the most of our location and enjoyed the bar and the treatment by the staff! We had a look at the sink in the room you stayed and it shouldn't be overflowing anymore. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

Unbeatable location, 10 minutes from the station and close to all the sights.

The place to stay in Amsterdam.. not as boisterous as the Pig however a quieter better choice.. located in the red light district, which is where you want to be. close to all coffee shops also. Very clean and tidy and staff just awesome.. the bar in the evening is the place to hangout in the city.. to add to everything, the breakfast is not a skimpy affair but is full blown along with fruits, juices and various other options. Awesome hostel and awesome stay.

The wifi is really spotty, always cutting in an out. It wasn't just me, many people I talked to complained about it too. They really need to get this fixed.

Great hostel which I can't recommend highly enough...clean and comfortable room with a nice en suite. There is a lively atmosphere about the hostel and the location is ideal. The breakfast was actually pretty good...well worth getting up for!

Great location - central to most major attractions in town and central station. Walked to and from train with luggage in about 15 minutes. Decent bar and restaurant downstairs. Definitely a good vibe for younger folks. Might be a little too rowdy for folks over 28. Very large hostel, so not much of an opportunity or facilities for people traveling alone to meet others. Nevertheless, felt safe and clean. Breakfast included toast, cereal, coffee, juice.

the bar and restaurant are excellent but the hotel is not. the room was dirty and the bed is covered in pee stains. the pillow was yellow from stains.

Hello, Pleased to read you enjoyed yourselves in our restaurant. Aside from this, as you already know from our email correspondence and chats at the front desk, we have looked into the issues raised, and even though we were unable to confirm this we endeavor to be extra vigilant over such matters to ensure that this sort of thing does not effect any guest in the future. All the best on your honeymoon,

I liked very much the kind of decisions that you take; for example, giving free wifi as a extra service. We, as customers, remember more that kind of details than how good are the sheets. Excellent nacho's by the way...

The place is very cool, the only issue is the excess of noise. Also one of the guys on the reception (the oldest one, maybe the manager) was very rude with several people the time I was there. But in general everyone is really cool and nice.

The hostel is in a great location, in the hearth of the red district, near of everything. The bar of the hostel is great, always with good music. The room is good but the box to put our things down of the bed has no logistic and is difficult to use. Breakfast is really great! Bathroom in the room was not so clean.
