The bar downstairs is great and so is the free breakfast.. however the staff aren't too engaging. The area is central but perhaps a bit dodgy at night. Stayed in a 5 person room (really expensive!!!!!!!) that had graffiti dicks all over the walls (welcome to Amsterdam right?!) which wasn't very clean. Seems that men seem to enjoy this hotel much more than women from what I gathered from everyone we met there.
If you want to party hard and stay right in tourist central then this is definitely your hostel. Personally, I would not stay in this area again, Jordaan would be far better. breakfast was okay, beds are comfortable but bathrooms were not desirable. very expensive as well.
The Hostel is in a very good location. I was alone and the bar is a nice place to make new friends. I definitely will stay there again if I go to amsterdam another time.
Ok this hostel was really great rooms are clean and staff are very helpful.They have a bar and the prices are good .Really enjoyed my stay and would choose this place for another time
Good location as its not far from the red light district, the dam or the train station. Staff were very friendly and gave us loads of advice, we also got 25% off food in the hostel which made it even better value for money. The rooms were clean and the bar was packed in the evenings with good music and drink deals. Staying here made our stay even more enjoyable, would 100% recommend!!

Great place to stay and socialize. Breakfast was above average for a hostel and the reception and bar staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Would defiantly stay here again and recommend to others.
Great and comportable hostel, having a bar down stairs means theres always something happening. It was a bit difficult to meet new people, but that was perhaps more the big groups of people travelling together more than the hostel itself.
I only stayed one night at the hostel. The staff was really nice and helpfull. I loved the bar, the patio, lockers easy to use, the wifi and the location. The room was not really nice and with carpet.
The 5 bed dorm was a little bit small. Should have been 4 beds in there. Apart from that it was a good place!
I stayed in a 4 bed dorm. Our bathroom was massive and clean which was a plus, also our room was cleaned every day. Location is perfect, close to everything in Amsterdam. Only issue was that we could not get wifi in our room, however we had friends who had a perfect connection in their room. Great hostel.
Very nice hostel ! Great location and great bar! I highly recommend it !
Located just off of Dam square, St Christophers is a really amazing hostel with great staff and a clean environment. Stayed for 4nights without incident. Thanks guys
One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. Very social atmosphere especially down at the bar and resturant. The staff there are extremely friendly and willing to help, suggest places to go and even other places to eat in the city. This hostel was booked my first night in Amsterdam, and it was such a relief to be able to switch from the other hostel.
The room is too small and there is no ventilation on it. Otherwise the hostel could be perfect. About the other points it's a very good place to stay in Amsterdam.
Free breakfast was excellent and not stingy at all. :) less flexible than other hostels about things like checking in and out and leaving bags, although were very happy to let us in any time of night. They give you a 'discount card' with money off drinks and food and stuff at the hostel bar which they say is valid all day. It's not and its unlikely the food even with your discount will be very cheap at all - so a bit misleading. Drinks vouchers run out at like9pm and a spirt mixer is 7.50euro.

The location is excellent, right near the train station and the red light district. The staff is good and it's a great place to meet people, but the downstairs room dot have privacy curtains or enough power outlets. Breakfast was good, checkout is a bit early, at 10
The staff was great, but the room in which I stayed in wasn't that good and lacked cleanliness. Furthermore, it was kind of difficult to get a WiFi connection in the hostel.
Very great hostel great location...only thing is the walls are paper thin so you literally could hear a pin drop outside and also room seemed to have fallen into slight disrepair as some of the fixtures didnt work...otherwise fabulous place
A fun place with great staff. When we arrived something happened with our reservation and our room was occupied. The guy took us to the bar, gave us free beers, and worked it out as we waited. Very friendly, nice touch. We quickly got our room, which was clean and felt very safe. We couldn't hear the loud music some other reviews mention. However, you are right next to (basically in) the RLD. Even with us not being all about partying, we thought this was fun. We'd stay here again.
