Overall a pretty decent place. Relatively clean, in a fantastic location, and a decent bar. This was the last hostel I stayed at on a two month RTW trip, and I don't regret it. Met some fantastic people, and had a good time. The WiFi could use an extra router or two down at the end of the halls. Poor (though quick) coverage in my room.

Thank you very much for your positive review! It's good to see our hostel was a good destination as last stop on a long trip! We are sorry to read that our Wi-Fi was acting up during your stay. We generally have a very strong and fast connection, so we have asked our maintenance guys to run some tests in order to get back on this high level. Thank you for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Some of the staff at this hostel are not friendly at all. It seems to me they don't really care about customer service since they have so many guest losing one is not a big deal.

We are happy that you enjoyed almost everything about us, and we appreciate your feedback! We're sorry that the female dorm can only be reached by walking up a set of stairs, and we hope that it hasn't affected your stay too much. We're glad that you appreciated the staff's gesture though. Thanks again for your review! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Good hostel , great location, smelled funky in hallways

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you very much for your review! It's good to see that you enjoyed your stay with us, and that you appreciated our location. We're sorry to read that the hallways had a bit of a strange smell whilst you were staying with us. We went through the hallways and in particular the one you stayed on, and there's nothing special to be smelled there now. We feel that it has something to do with guests on the floor at the same time. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Prime location! Very pleased with the location! The duvet inserts were nasty. They just put a clean cover on them. They had lots of stains on the insert. Bar was nice. They had a pub crawl going on at another hostel so it would get really busy then almost dead. Not a problem- just adding comments about the atmosphere. Lockers were a nice size. A towel was included! Breakfast was nice. I grabbed 2 pieces of bread to take with me on the train. I would stay there again!

Thank you very much for your review! It's good to see that you appreciated our location so much, and that you enjoyed our breakfast! We appreciate your comment about the duvet, and as soon as we read your review we investigated the duvets in your room. Unfortunately we have to agree with your assessment in regards to your duvet, and we had it replaced straight away. We hope you accept our sincere apologies. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Free wifi, towel, shampoo and soap. The room was noisy even after midnight as its right next to the tourist/bar street with people walking by, talking, laughing. Free breakfast was nice. Individual bed light and power socket.

Thank you very much for your review! It's good to see that you appreciated our freebees so much. We understand that it can be a bit noisy at night, seeing as it is right in the middle of all the action Amsterdam has to offer. Please note that we also offer free ear plugs, which might just help you sleep a bit easier. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Fabulous hostel. Great vibe. Amazing location. As mentioned by others before, yes, bathroom and basin both clog, so if you're the 3rd or 4th person to shower, it ain't a pleasant experience. But apart from this tiny issue, ONE OF THE BEST HOSTELS I HAVR STAYED IN EVER! You can't really go wrong with this one. A 7 minute walk from the station and like a minute's walk from Dam Square and Red Light District! Amazing party vibe!

Thank you very much for your compliments! We're sorry to read that you experienced a clogged shower whilst you were staying here. We do check these regularly, but sometimes with high traffic in our showers it clogs up quicker than we can foresee. Next time please let our reception know as soon as this happens, so we can sort it out straight away. Thanks again for your feedback, and see you next time! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Fantastic location, safe and secure with great free breakfast. Giving an average on facilities just because of the lack of a kitchen or common room other than the bar. Would definitely stay again!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you very much for your review! We appreciate your comment about a guest kitchen and an extra common room, but unfortunately this is not something we can change straight away. If you'd be looking for something similar as us next time, but with a guest kitchen, we'd highly recommend one of the Flying Pig Hostels. Thanks again for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

Good hostel, very close to the Central Station. Staff lovely and helpful, very close to the red light district, on the border actually. Very good place to have a weekend in Amsterdam, the food in the bar is tasty and not expensive. The facilities can be better but very good experience.

I stayed at a Female dormitory, it was like a hotel. We were given an rental towel and soap. Also it is located very convenient place, so I could find good restaurant and cafe easily!

Very good hostel for a short break. Location, food and drinks cost are excellent and the staff are really helpful. Beds are a little uncomfortable but that's minor complaint.

Dorm rooms are clean, neat and spacious. Good location in red light district and only 10min walk to museums. defiantly seems to attract a more rowdy crowd who seemed to be stoned most of the time, so not recommended for those who want a more relaxed stay. Also no kitchen.

100% encourage you not to stay here if you're looking for a semi-restful night. There is a major dance club attached to the hostel and even on a Sunday night the music was ridiculous. Earplugs will NOT work to drown out the sound. The bass shook the bed until the wee hours of the morning. That said, perfect place if you don't want to sleep and party! But then why would you pay for a bed at a hostel? Just stay awake and put your stuff in a locker.

This place is awesome !! I stayed in 8 mixed room. It's a 24 hours dark room, because everybody in my room were high or drunk i guess. But it's a perfect place in Heart of red light district and have funs.
