I had a nice stay, the hostel it's great!
The hostel is well located, close to the central station and the Dam square, very clean and with an excellent character and atmosphere. Value for money wise, its an excellent option when visiting Amsterdam. The hostel's staff is quite polite, helpful and attentive but unfortunately this can not be said for the bar's staff. Another minor drawback is that if you are leaving your stuff prior of after you lodging to the hostel, you have to pay for the lockers as there is no storage room available.
The rooms were good and clean and the location was the best i could get... The staff at the reception were nice but the ones at the bar were very rude and disrespectful to most people! The girl with blue hair does not deserve to work at such a good hostel!
Best hostel we stayed at on our Eurotrip. The night life rock's with awesome music and a great vibe in the hostel bar. The staff where all very friendly and always willing to help and assist with any queries. Definitely the place to stay at when you are visiting Amsterdam.
Nice place, though obviously a party hostel. If I hadn't been hanging out late with roommates I might not have had the best experience with my dorm mates. The hostel itself is really nice though, clean, good facilities, great location and friendly, very helpful staff. Recommended.
nice location, very clean! Not to many backpackers, during my stay.
Excellent atmosphere at the hostel with a bar, club and nice social arena on the ground floor. Food in bar is quite reasonably priced, but was not that tasty. Hostel is very central! Note: we had a private room so the comments about noise, cleanliness etc may vary compared to the regular dorm rooms. Room was nice and clean with some special "art" on the wall. Noise not that big of an issue really, would think it would be worse with the bar downstairs and club as a neighbour to the hostel.
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.
Everything amazing..I definitely recommend St Christophers. The room is great, clean, tidy, there is a bath and toilet inside, the staffs are kind, location is perfect..I can't complain at all!
Well quite simply one of the best..... As far as staying in Hostels, I don't think it will get much better.
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.
The staff was very friendly and they really went out of their way to help I enjoined the breakfast very much it was very complete and the bar just played good music!!!
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.

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 looking bar, clean rooms and all facilities, perfect location. We will be back definetely !

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.
Very comfortable stay. The staff were friendly and helpful.

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!!
