Decent size hostel, but there was no atmosphere at all. No one wanted to talk to each other. On the plus side there was a really cute cat.

Great location in the middle of the RLD. It's a very large hotel, the only common area being the bar downstairs, which cmakes meeting other travelers a bit difficult. The free breakfast each morning was good and the bar has special deals for guests of the hostel. Was better than some others I've stayed in whilst in Amsterdam as while there is a smoking room, that's not the main focus of the people there. No kitchen was slightly annoying. But super close to everything you want in Amsterdam.

Good to read that you enjoyed our location so much! We understand that you would've appreciated another common area than our bar and smoking room, and we hope that the lack of one hasn't affected your stay too much. Thank you for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

It's a very big hostel. The bar down stairs is a good place to meet other travelers, as if the free dinner that is on each night. The kitchen is tiny considering the number of people staying there. Each floor only has 4 bathrooms which means you can be waiting up to an hour to use one. It's in a really good location, close to everything including the train station.

This hostel is more of a hotel with one dorm room for females and one for males. It's spread across three different buildings. Interesting mix of people from young backpackers to older couples. Decent kitchen and really spacious bathrooms. Really close to supermarkets and bars and a great cafe at the end of the road. Very close to the tram to get into the city center & down the road from Slottsskogen (massive park with a zoo in it). There isn't really a common area in the building I was in.

Great location, about 10 minutes from Central Station. Beautifully refurbished old building. Kitchen is big and we had some great nights with everyone talking and drinking around the kitchen tables. The rooms had small lockers for your valuables, but not really anywhere to put your bag. Paying for bed linen is a bit ridiculous (who backpacks or travels anywhere carrying their own linen??). But having free pasta available was nice. Everything was extremely clean and wifi was decent.

This hostel has an excellent location, right in Old Town, but only a 5 minute walk from the bus/train station. Good size common areas with a 24hr bar at reception. Kitchen is quite small, but still usable. Big lockers under the beds made it easy to keep your belongings safe. Bathrooms were always clean. The hostel offers lots of activities from bobsledding to shooting. And the girls on reception were lovely. I would definitely recommend staying here.

I stayed here in late November, which means fewer people around. However, even with only 10 people staying here this place had an amazing atmosphere. Travelling alone, I met some amazing people within 10 minutes of arriving. The bathrooms are huge and always clean and the kitchen is great. Having a bar in the hostel was excellent and made meeting people that much easier. The staff were incredibly friendly and went out of their way to help you with whatever you needed. Definitely stay here!

Awesome location, with a really cool bar/restaurant on the 1st floor. And a kitchen/outdoor/spa area on the roof. It's a very bog hostel which leave you feeling a little bit like you're in a hotel, but there's a good vibe about the place with a travel shop for advice downstairs and some good food place's down the street.

A bit of a walk in to the main bit of town. Has two sections, one for dorms and one for private rooms, with each section having it's own kitchen. No one was very talkative in the private room area, but the backpacker bit was more chatty.

A great hostel to stay at if you're doing the Alpine Crossing. Good vibe, clean bathrooms and a good kitchen. Doesn't really have much a communal area, but the kitchen acts as kind of the hub of the hostel and there's a pub next door to chill out in after the hike. They also have hiking gear for hire if you've forgotten something.

This hostel is essentially the Haad Rin arena where they hold Muay Tai fights. Our room was actually in the gym. The bathroom was revolting, it smelt so bad we couldn't go in there. And there was a broken window that could've let people in. However great location. 5 minute walk from the beach and shops. And as our room was in the gym, free entry to fights. We were there for the Full Moon party, and if you just need somewhere to sleep with fun people to hang out with, then definitely stay here.

The set up of rooms was appalling. They had 8 beds in what should have been maximum of 4. Four bunk beds squashed together with no gaps between them. Showers were push button ones that stayed on for 15 seconds at a time and you could not adjust the temperature. And there was nowhere to put any clothes where they don't get wet. However breakfast was decent and the TV room was cool. But you should NOT have to pay for wifi!!

In good location, easy to get to most places. The free breakfast is good, and it was really clean. However due to it being such a large hostel, it's a bit more like a hotel with a bar downstairs than anything else. It's not the best place to meet people. Wifi is also only in the bar and isn't overly reliable. Overall a decent place to stay.

Nice big lockers. Ensuites are really tiny, but there are bathrooms down the hall so it's not too bad. Breakfast is expensive and there are no cooking facilities at all, so it's really difficult to eat cheaply. But drinks are reasonably priced, and there's usually some sort of party at night.

Really friendly staff. Beautifully bright fresh rooms. Having TVs with thousands movies in your room is great! Kitchen is unfortunately rather small, but not unusable. The dining area is a good social place, and having the common area (for this hostel and the other CroParadise hostels), 2 minutes down the road is really good. It keeps the hostel quiet at night for people who want to sleep, but also allows a space for people who want to party to do so and also meet people from the other hostels.

Really good place to stay. Nice and quiet, with really nice, clean facilities. Only suggestion woul be to offer something other than bread based things for breakfast.
