Its a Party Hostel. Loud people during all night.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are sorry that you were inconvenienced by the party atmosphere and by people being loud. Please note that we offer free ear plugs at reception, which might just see you through an extra few hours of sleep. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

The old man at the front wasn't too nice. Didn't feel like he was being honest.

What i found best of this hostel was the location and the bar. You have considerable discounts for drinking/eating on the bar, where you'll find a great atmosphere any time. Rooms were fine, maybe their toilet rooms and bathrooms weren't very comfortable for their size, but they were very clean. Consider that you'll mostly find youngster roommates searching for continued partying, so if you are looking for the same, or if you don't bother that, it would be a good hostel to stay in.

Thank you very much for your feedback! It's great to read that you enjoyed yourself, despite the fact that our bathrooms are a bit small. We hope this hasn't affected your stay too much, and that you'll be back for round 2 some other time. Thanks again for your review! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

My favourite hostel in Amsterdam! Friendly, helpful staff; excellent location in the heart of the city; vibrant (and cheap) on-site bar/restaurant; secure and comfortable rooms with a charger for every bed... the list goes on. Walking distance from Centraal Station too. Unbeatable.

THE BEST HOSTEL RIGHT IN THE HEARTH OF THE RED LIGHT DISTRICT. Everything was awesome. 6-bed room felt luxurious. The bathroom was huge. Nice bar and smoking area where it's easy to socialise and meet peers. Definitely the best hostel I've ever been so far.

Location was good, wifi was also really good. The staff were amazing, after I got both my iPod and phone stolen from a room mate , they were really helpful and supportive when I wasn't really in a state to do anything. Would come back again

Thank you very much for your review! It's good to see that you enjoyed the location and our wifi, and we're very pleased to read that the staff were there for you when you needed it the most. It's a shame that with some roommates your stuff needs to be locked up all the time. We're happy to see that you'd come back to us next time you're around. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Cracking Hostel, probably the second best I've stayed in. Facilities and hostel bar are awesome and the proximity to main train station, trams and attractions was perfect!

The hostel beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are in good condition! The hostel staff were very helpful & the location is great! My only complaint is with the hostel bar - worst ever. The music was so loud you had to yell at 4pm & it was horrible grunge metal music. Not relaxing or cool in the slightest. The bar staff were rude & kept bashing the bottle-opener on a metal pole which was disturbingly loud and disruptive. All other hostel bars have a cool vibe but not this one

Such a great central location. The bar was ok, it had ok deals. The breakfasts were very good in the mornings. The wifi cut out for a day while we were there, but other than that it was really good.

It's good to read that you loved our location and our breakfast, and that you thought we had good deals in the bar. We are sorry the Wi-Fi acted up that one day, it was a complicated technical issue that has now been completely solved. We hope it hasn't affected your stay too much.

This was an excellent hostel to stay at. The location was absolutely perfect from arrival from the Centraal Station to everything else you can do in the city. There are good coffee shops near by and everything else is very accessible. There is good food all around the hostel and big shopping areas just one street over. The hostel offers a very chill environment during the day, a great smoking room to meet people and play pool, a great bar and garden, and great food including the free breakfast.

Brilliant hostel , just stayed there for 3 nights with a friend in a twin room and found the whole experience really good . I loved the unique design of the bar and room corridors with all those amazing photo's which really add a funky look to the place . I will be returning there on my next visit 100% , highly recommend the place .
