Awesome location! Was woken up early by girls below in the windows, but I think that was part of the experience. I would keep in mind that you are right in the middle of the party in case you do not want that experience. There is a great bar downstairs and club next door. Go on the pub crawl that starts at Players. Great way to meet people. Thanks!
For what it is and where it is, its pretty good. Well run. I do not like that they charge for bag storage.
great experience, everything was pristine, excellent location and a very nice bar in the first floor
the receptionist was very rood and unplesant! had a really bad start because of him. the room was good, realtivly large, but needed some more cleaning (bathroom...). the location was excellent, but it's too bad there isn't any place to hang out in without having to pay for drinks. not sure we'll be back next time.. probably we would go to Cocomoma instead.
Staff were very unhelpful and generally unfriendly. People were smoking in the bedrooms but nothing was done about it for the whole time 3 nights I was there. Atmosphere was pretty average, a lot of large groups who didn't really mingle. Breakfast was good though.
We lost one of our access cards (out of two) which is used to get the private ensuite room keys from the reception. Please add another security feature like passcode access door on each floor. Atleast Recording the faces of people while accessing the door could be useful.
Showers get clogged easily and you shower in an inch or two of dirty water. No way of locking very noisy under-bed lockers unless you have a jumbo lock. Some lockers would not even close properly. Our bathroom door didn't close the first couple of days, so no way of locking it while on the toilet or taking a shower. Very noisy. You can feel yourself vibrate in the bed with the club music down stairs until the early morning. However they do give out free ear plugs. Very poor Internet in rooms.
The hostel is very close to Amsterdam Central Station which is so good. There is bathroom which is working well in the rooms. The internet was not working very well i hope they will fix it. The breakfast was close to perfect for a hostel. (butter, chocolate, milk etc.) There is a club which is next to the hostel. You can go there and listen live music. The hostel is close to the streets which have a lot of fun. So it is loud. But it is normal it is Amsterdam. So it is a good hostel to stay.
You really can't find a better place to stay in Amsterdam. Very safe, secure and clean. This is my second time at St Chris and if I am ever in Amsterdam again I will absolutely stay here.
The hostel was nice and well located!
great staff that was kind and helpful the location is amazing, very close to the train station and red light district very safe, you have cages under the beds to put your stuff the atmosphere is very good, a bar downstairs and great breakfast unfortunately we stayed in one of the rooms that are next to the street and was very hard to sleep
Great location, great food at a reasonable price on site. Rooms were comfortable enough, the only fault was that the room we were in (7 of us) was like a sauna and only had one fan (no aircon). Would still recommend though.

The twin room is too small for 2 people. The shower as well.. So tiny! Beside that the place is good.

Fantastic location for anyone wanting to visit amsterdam. Only a 5 minute walk from amsterdam central and located within the red light district. Rooms were air conditioned, had private toilets and showers in the rooms. The bar area was always lively and the food and drink on offer was definitely worth the money with a 25% off resident discount on food.

Good hostel, the bar was always busy at night, rooms were good. Location is incredible, right in the red light district and close to the train station. I would stay here again.
Great hostel would definitely recommend if you are in Amsterdam looking for a great place at a very reasonable price. Location is in the Red Light district but is perfect because it is about a block over from the main street of the Red Light.
I love St Christophers. Great place, really made me feel safe and secure in my belongings while I trawled through the coffee shops of the city. St Chris is part of a chain, and I've never had a problem at any that I've stayed at. The breakfast here is above standards. Stay here. The only problem I had is the showers are lipless so water usually ended up all over the food when other's weren't as considerate.
It's a great central hostel that's clean and neat. We booked a double room as it was the last night of our trip.the room was small but clean.Though it was only afterwards I realised its was almost as dear as a hotel room in Amsterdam .
The 8 bed dorm has private showers and toilet, which is great. Easy access from the bar to the rooms and the location is amazing!
Good location near the train station, awesome atmosphere at the bar downstairs which is a great way to meet people.
