We really enjoyed our stay at The Winston. The location is perfect and right next to the Dam Square. The staff were very very helpful as expected from one of St Christopher's hostels. Definitely i would stay there again whenever i come back to Amsterdam.

Really great location. Room was very warm so had to keep door open, which meant it was very noisy. Really impressed with the choice at breakfast and staff very friendly. Had issues with our toilet but that was eventually resolved. Food in the bar very good value for money and tasty.

Had an absolute blast at this Hostel! Staff we're extremely friendly and helpfull. A big shout out to Moe the bartender there! He not only made myself and my friend feel extremely welcome but he poored us a welcoming shot of Yager for our first trip to Amsterdam, and then he also showed us where to find the best burgers in Amsterdam at Burger Bar. Couldnt recommend Moe, and St Christophers more Highly. I hope to see these guys again very soon! ;)

Thank you very much for your review! It's good to read how much you enjoyed yourself! We will pass the message on to Moe, though his burger choice is debatable. We feel the best burgers in Amsterdam are served in Belushi's! Thanks again for your feedback, we hope to see you again soon! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

Everything was great, except my friends camera was left in a room and even after she emailed and called them a few times (with people noting that they did, indeed, see the camera there), they have done a very poor job of making any effort to get it back to her. Disappointing for an otherwise great hostel.

Thank you very much for your review! We appreciate that because of our location being in the very center of Amsterdam, outside can be a bit noisy at times. We are sorry for that and hope it hasn't affected your stay too much! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

The location could not be better. In the center of everything. They accommodated me an extra night which I thought was great. The staff is fantastic and really open to constructive criticism. The bar closes early enough so it doesn't keep you up at night. The only thing that threw me off was the cleanliness. Definitely needs a lot of improvement. Also, at night the room gets incredibly stuffy and it smells really weird. Pretty gross. Oh and no wifi in my room, huge bummer.

If you would like a hostel where the party is always going then this is the place for you. If not stay away! I had to have ear plugs in the whole night to get somw sleep, a friend had to change rooms as the floor in the hostel was shaking because of the noise. Possitive, they changed rooms for him straight away. Bathroom is very tiny a d smelt really bad. They change towels daily. Breakfast is good but nothing hot. Overall would stay again if bathroom did not smell and price was right.

The best hostel I've stayed in so far! My boyfriend and I were looking for a lively hostel to meet people and we definitely found that in St Christopher's. Great atmosphere, free breakfast, discounted bar meals, clean rooms and not to loud considering it's a party hostel. Staff members Moe, Liex (and everyone else!) were extremely friendly and gave us lots of tips on interesting bars and things to do in Amsterdam. It was our second time at St Christopher's @ Winston and it won't be our last!

Having staff at Christopher Inn before I knew it would be an awesome experience in Amsterdam s well. IT turned out to be true. The staff is excellent and the atmosphere in the inn is energetic. Somehow all the guests seems to have the same level of energy and fun in them, probably gets it from the hostel. would recommend this place to everyone.

Def a hostel to go to for parties. Free earplugs downstairs for those who like to hit the bed early. Location is great, conveniently by the train station and walking distance to almost everything to see in Amsterdam. We had to switch rooms during our stay, and had to put our stuff in the expensive lockers downstairs since there was no luggage room. They try hard with security, but we ended up with scketchy people in our room.

Thank you for your review! We are glad that you enjoyed our location! The reason you had to change rooms is because you arrived one day earlier than the booking and booked a couple of our last beds. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by this! We are concerned to read that you were disappointed about the people that were staying in the same room as you, and we will contact you personally to find out a bit more about this. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's @ The Winston

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!
