Well located, right in red light district amoungst all the action you could want. Bar and smoking sections are awesome, not as good for meeting people when compared to other St Chrostophers, but still have a great atmosphere. Only complaint is wifi, pretty much unusable, and only available in bar. Sick place otherwise!

Hey there. Thanks for getting back to us. Always good to know about your experiences so we can grow and better ourselves for our future guests. Going through some big changes with the Wi-Fi this month and hope it didn't inconvenience you during your stay too much. Should be some of the best coverage in town come summer : ) Glad you enjoyed yourself. Cheers

Amazing place! ;) It's situated in the heart of the city, just 5 minutes walking to Dam square. The service is good, with a really polite team, and the structure is awesome, it has a bar open till 3 am, a nice smoke area with a pool table and it has also a club open till late night. Perfect place to enjoy Amsterdam!

St Christopher's at The Winston looks quite scary when you first see but it really was a lovely place to end our weekend away.

Hey. Thanks for writing. We know the Red Light District can be a bit daunting at first if you're not used to that sort of thing, but its great to see that you changed your mind and enjoyed yourselves. Amsterdam sometimes gets a bit of bad rep unfortunately, but everyone who stays in this city usually realises that there is nothing to worry about : ) You're welcome back any time of course

I stayed here with my 2 friends and we had an amazing few days in Amsterdam! Location is great and rooms are clean and comfy. The bar staff were the best! So fun and friendly! Wicked taste in music. I would defiantly recommend to groups, not so much solo travellers.

Hey. So great that you took the time to write to us about our music! We're sure you must have seen that the crew here are all huge music fans and our hearts and souls go into our playlists for you guys. Thanks again and safe onward travels. Rock on!

You should pick this hostel because the staff and location are great and it was reasonably priced and the Breakfast is amazing! Don't pick this hostel if room amenities are the most important - the door rooms are very bare bones (beds, bathrooms, and heated towel rack) but the Garden, Bar, and Food are stellar.

Hello. Thanks for getting back to us with your thoughts on our hostel. Seems like you spent a lot of time in our bar and beer garden, which is what we like to see! We hope you used your security card to get discounted food and 2-for-1 drink specials. We know that every penny counts when you're traveling ; ) See ya

Wasn't impressed over all. The vibe was low and definitely didn't get my money's worth compared to other St Christopher Hostels. Won't be going back any time soon.

Such a shame that you didn't feel as though we match up to the high standards set by our other hostels. We'll write to you in private to try and get a bit more feedback from you if that's ok. We're sure that we can learn a great deal from your experiences with us and are always looking to improve. We want to make sure that everyone has an equally awesome time at all of our hostels. Thanks for writing and talk soon : )

Was easy to meet people if you were in a share room. Shame the garden closes at around 10pm but it was very cold. This place is perfectly situated in the red light district and right beside a club. If you're looking for that sort of atmosphere, stay here. If you aren't a fan of this sort of environment, I wouldn't stay here because it's hard to avoid.

Hey. Great feedback. Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know what you thought about your time with us. Awesome that you met some cool people in your room too. It really makes a huge difference when you're roommates want to go and do all the same stuff as you do : ) Someone to enjoy the city with. Hope you have fun on the rest of your trip too!

Our staff love to read reviews like this. Thank you so much for your kind words. And we certainly agree with you about breakfast. We know how important it is to beat that Amsterdam hangover and to get a good start to a busy day of sightseeing. Thanks again. Take care
