Hostelworld says

St Christopher's at the Winston has been recommended by Hostelworld staff as ideal for 'anyone who wants to stay close to the Red Light district and coffee shops'. This 'very exciting' hostel was voted the most popular in Amsterdam at the 2011 Hoscars, and it's not hard to see why; it includes a bar, beer garden and smoking area, with discounts on food and drink in the bar downstairs. There are daily walking tours and free ear plugs, plus an elevator-an uncommon feature in Amsterdam buildings and useful for carrying heavy luggage.

    I loved this Hostel. The atmosphere is bumping right in the red light district, yet feels safe, secure, and stays relatively quiet at night. The rooms have each there own separate toilet and shower which was very nice, and you get huge lockers for your things and they provide towels. The bar is well known in the city with great wings and cheap drinks! Everyone comes to it. For the money its a wonderful location. Honestly best hostel ever and I would stay again in a heartbeat. Breakfast was great

    Our stay was incredible. We couldn’t imagine the hostel being any cleaner, in a better location or having a better staff. If you are looking for somewhere quiet, this may not be the place for you - but we didn’t mind it. The staff is incredibly helpful. Overall, we were so pleased and thrilled by our stay in Amsterdam!

    Very Good

    Definitely a party hostel located dead Center in the red light district with a popular bar attached which gets quite busy most evenings. No kitchen as there is a bar attached that serves food but hostel guests get a 25% discount. A bit noisy given its proximity to all the night life. The website says there is an outside terrace but it’s was under construction and being used as storage at the time. The staff simply told us they didn’t have a terrace anymore.

    Very Good

    12 May 2019
    Though it is a well run hostel, it was near impossible to get any sleep. I expected a noisy night but not for what sounded like serious anti-social behaviour in and around the hostel lasting until 4 in the morning.Sadly and wrongly, what kept me awake sounded aggressive and loutish rather than exuberant socialising. This is very like to be an "Amsterdam problem" rather than down to St Christopher's. Nevertheless, it rather spoilt my stay.

    I was about to give this place a raving review despite how expensive it is but it appears I have been bitten and covered in bed bugs. Everything was great, best hostel I have stayed at. Spacious and clean but i am covered In bed bug bites. Never had I have this happen at a hostel so is really upsetting.

St Christopher's at The Winston says

One of the things that makes our hostel unique is that we invite various upcoming designers to decorate each of our rooms with weird and interesting themes. None of our rooms look the same, and you could be sleeping in a movie-themed room, a psychedelic room or even a sex-oriented room!

We have a very interesting team here at The Winston, with staff from several countries, in several age-groups. It's a nicely mixed bunch of people.

We have the Red Light District in our backyard and lots of coffee shops, restaurants and crazy little shops are around us. Add to that a bar and a nightclub which are in our building on the ground floor, and you have all the ingredients to have a great time in Amsterdam. If you'd like to relax or see the interesting sights in Amsterdam, most options are on walking distance or a few minutes by tram.
