Its a very good hostel for 2 or 3 nigths. More than that may become unconfortable. The rooms are very small, but the bar downstairs its very handy if you are traveling alone. Location its awsome.
Great location near the red light district. Close to the start of the walking tours and pub crawl locations. More of a group hotel than hostel. No communal space outside of the bar and no kitchen 😞.

Loved this hostel, awesome vibes and location. I'll be back!
I stayed there for just one night and i must say i was kinda disappointed, inspite of being on the 3rd floor, the noise from the nightclub downstairs was enormous, although i did get my sleep. Rooms were a little small which is not a big deal, but the most astonishing for me was the locker arrangement, the small box like cage for our stuff in the rooms is all that was provided however i did like the idea of having better lockers at the reception which means 24/7 surveillance at an extra cost.
If you are planning to stay in Amsterdam, stay in this hostel! When I booked, I wondered how they can keep such a high rating with so many reviews, but I definitely found out: the location, staff, room and amenities were excellent. My friend and I stayed in a twin bed en suite room. The hostel is great for both going out and having fun, or just chilling and relaxing in your room. I have stayed in countless hostels over the years and nothing has compared to St Christopher's Amsterdam.

Excellent hostel with excellent people!
Honestly the stuff is not really helpful, especially the bar tender who was so tough and unpleasing to most of us during our stay. No one advised us for the city or hostel environment rules, concerning after 1 am you either have to be in your room or outside which was the worst thing ever as we just came back from sant jordi at Barcelona which was totally better experience.
Overall I enjoyed our 3 day stay at the Winston. We stayed in an 8 bed dorm and it was spacious with nice lockers under your bed. Great smoking room (cigs and the good stuff), and a garden smoking area outside as well. Food was good and they have great drinks deals, staff was helpful and pleasant. That being said. Kinda dirty, for sure smelled, and the wifi SUCKS!! They don't have a private wifi for guest, open to all the bar people at night couldn't load anything the 3 days there. :(
Really great location near train station! Easily can walk to all main attractions of Amsterdam. Very secure and clean. Great bar attached to hostel but the rooms were very quite still. Would highly recommend!
Located right in the heart of the red light district. Great location to walk to many attractions. Delicious free breakfast with your stay. Helpful staff. Great experience here.
Great hostel! Super clean room, towel, ensuite bathroom, all good things. The bar gets pretty rowdy most nights (in a good way) and the location is amazing. I love the pub crawl that stops there! Definitely recommend.
Clean hostel with comfortable beds, location was really cool- on the outskirts of red light district. Breakfast was better than most places and had meat, cheese and fruit with toast. However as a solo traveler, this place was not good for meeting people and was more of a hotel than a hostel. The common area was a bar, and no real chill out place for meeting people and talking. I would only return if I was in a group and there weren't any better options.
The location is excellent, and the included breakfast is good. However, the room was small and bathroom were really tiny! The pub downstairs is nice, but there is no hostel atmosphere that enables you to meet other travellers in a common room or so. All in all, it wasn't a bad hostel, but it's way overpriced...
Amazing!! I stay here everytime! Right in the middle of it all.. highly reccommended 😊😊😊

It is the top hostel I have ever been, shame that we could only book one night because it was too popular!!!!! However if you want quiet place this place might not be the top option for you - it's a very lively place, but that's the point of staying in Amsterdam!!!
good and worthy place. close to all fun-places.
Kind of a crazy place being in the red light district but all in all good stay, some odd characters about but what do you expect being 20 seconds from the rld
The hotel located very near to the Amsterdam ventral station, so it's very convnient to live here. BUT, the enviroment of both the hotel and room is terrible,. The lousy noise downstaires stayed up to about 4'o clock in the morning,and I had a really bad sleep that night. I won't choose to live here anymore…
