This hostel was in a great location (the only downside is if you are trying to sleep, sometimes it is loud outside), really close to attractions and in the middle of everything. Our room was very spacious and the beds were very comfortable and clean for the most part - I should add though that I found blood on my blanket that was not mine... Other than that, I had a great stay.
Party hostel. There is no ac in the rooms which makes it get very hot in the summer. Shower was very poor. Not overall a fun place to stay if you are looking to come to Amsterdam. Many of the pub crawls come to the bar so it's a pretty fun enviornment
Great location, facilities, atmosphere and great staff! Shout out to Kieth, sound as a pound! I felt very welcome. Would recommend you have drinks in the bar and mingle before hit the town. Rooms were very clean and spacious. I did not experience any claustrophobia. Best hostel location in Amsterdam I have visited. Would recommend St Christopher's at The Winston to anyone looking to have the "Amsterdam experience". You will not be disappointed. Also the great breakfast is a nice touch too.
This place was pretty great in retrospect. There were things I didn't care for while I was there like being woken up by your neighbors being loud on the balcony (the balcony is shared among the floor and each room has a door out to it). I ended up switching hostels and immediately regretted it. This place was actually pretty decent. It was in a prime location for anything you'd likely be seeing in Amsterdam and the place was pretty good. Would go back.
Stayed in a private room with ensuite. Clean room, lots of space. Location is great can't be beaten really. It is a little bit of a hike from the main station if you are carrying your pack so plan ahead and make sure you know the best route. Great bar (and great food) downstairs. And fabulous staff who will take care of you (thanks for mailing my postcards!) Would definitely stay there again.
My only advice would be to book a mixed dorm, the female only is in a separate building and isn't as nice as the main hostel.
Cool hostel in an awesome location. If you want peace and quiet this is not your option, but if you come to party give it a go. I would definitely recommend the hostel to add some basic simple necessities though, like hooks in the bathrooms or a couple of shelves. I had to figure out where to put my clothes when I was taking a shower. It's not like it's anything costly, so c'mon guys.
