Really nice hostel/hotel in heart of the Red Light district. Felt safe. Excellent, friendly staff. Great free breakfast. Bar is okay but better just down the road. Stayed one night in 8 bed dorm ensuite and two in private. Dorm was nice, with individual lockers, and plugs/lights in each bunk, but room so small, felt on top of each other. Had a great time, would stay again!

Best hostel in Amsterdam if your goal is to meet friendly young travelers looking for a good time and a lively nightlife. Not the cheapest hostel I've used, but worth the price. Amenities are good for the hostel. Staff takes the job seriously. Well run business. The hostel is fused with a very popular bar and smoking room which provides an unparalleled experience and chill atmosphere.

Location is within the red light district, but is not dangerous or whatever, just 5-10 min walking to the train central station and the same to Dam Square. You have locker under your bed but you need a padlock to lock it. The first floor is a bar so is not very "homy" hostel and is VERY noisy by night if you want to go party until early morning you will be good, if not, could be annoying. Breakfast (8am-10am) is SO GOOD! very complete with a lot of different things.

It's good to see that you made the most out of our location and that you enjoyed the breakfast so much! Being in a busy area and having a bar and a club in our building we understand that it can be a bit loud at times, and we're sorry about that. Please note that we offer free ear plugs in our reception desk, which might just see you through an extra few hours of sleep. Thanks for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Excellent Hostel. Very friendly staff. Great Value for money. Facilities in room were average, however in the rest of the hostel they were great. Excellent shower, however, one small mirror in the bathroom is not sufficient for a 6 person room. A full length mirror would have been useful. 2 out of 4 sockets did not work in the room. 3 young girls matched to 3 much older men in the mixed dorm room, perhaps this could have been organised better as to where people are placed in rooms.

Thank you very much for your review! We appreciate you comments and will definitely take them on board. Our maintenance team will look into your feedback about the room. In regards to placing people in rooms, unfortunately there's not a whole lot we can do about this, since for logistic reasons we often have to allocate our bookings in advance, and we don't know the age of our guests prior to their arrival. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

only stayed here one night.... the heater was broken in our room and I asked reception to see about fixing it...they said someone would come up....no one ever did and it was literally freezing all night. other than that it's a decent place with a raging bar on the first level and in the heart of party town..don't expect a good night sleep even with the window closed until about 4 or 5 am when things quiet down though clean bathrooms and rooms..they provide shampoo, a towel, etc which was great

Good hostel of you're wanting a clean room for the night, but it's not the most social place The only social area is the bar and smoking area which is more like a club at night.

Thank you for leaving a review! We are happy that you appreciated the cleanliness of our hostel. We feel like we cater for people to meet other travelers, but we can certainly understand that our bar isn't suitable for everyone. If you'd come to Amsterdam on a future occasion we would recommend one of The Flying Pig hostels, which might be more to your liking. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

One of the best hostels I've been (Europe and Australia). Comfortable dorms, WC and shower inside, towel included. Con: has no kitchen, although the bar is cool, great atmosphere. I totally recomend it. But be sure not to stay all your visit in Warmoesstraat, most "touristful" street in ADam. It's such a beautiful city with plenty of things to visit!!

Definitely the best hostel I have been to. Amazing breakfast, best location near RLD and an indoor smoking area. What else do you need?

Hostel is in a prime location for coffee shops and bars, but it gets a little sketchy outside at night. Beds were comfy and free breakfast was a major plus. Would definitely stay again

Thank you for your review! We are indeed in the very heart of the action in Amsterdam, which can be great, but in a city this can indeed mean that you see some people around that don't seem to be as fun as others. We hire doormen every night and make sure we pay close attention to everything that happens on the street, and hope to make everybody as much as ease as we can. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Good hostel and great location would stay again :). Only thing to beware is there is no place to leave your luggage if you ain't got your bed available or after checking out. Around 80¢ per hour for a large locker.

Thank you very much for your review! We are happy to read that you made the most out of our location! We hope to cater to groups as well as individuals, but we can certainly appreciate that the size of our bar and the amount of groups can be overwhelming at times. We hope you give it another go some day! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

It's a great hostel. The nightclub inside is fantastic. Breakfast is really, really good - fresh fruits, all types of hot drinks and juices, bread, cheese - delicious!
