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.

Property Description

St. Christopher's at The Winston is right in the middle of all the action Amsterdam has to offer! The Red Light District is just outside our back garden, We're a 5-10 minute walk from Central Station, and we're 1 minute from Dam Square. The hostel serves up a rocking bar with a beer garden.

There is a continental breakfast available every morning for just €7 a day which can be purchased at reception on arrival, and free WiFi runs throughout the building. All guests receive 25% discount on food at our lively Belushi's bar and restaurant, plus 2 for 1 drink deals!

We have a fun, diverse, international crew; many of whom speak multiple languages and are travellers just like you. They are happy to help you plan trips and book tickets for onward travel, and there is a free walking tour that picks up from the hostel and a pub crawl that passes through our bar each night.

Party or relax in our on-site Belushi's bar and restaurant where you'll find cool tunes, sports on TV, a pool-table, great food and drink promotions all year round. On our bar menu you'll find hearty and healthy food, including the best burgers in town, tasty salads, towering Nachos, killer spicy wings, and luscious wraps. And to make things even better; all hotel/hostel guests get a 25% discount on the entire food menu! In regards to drinks we have 2-for-1 promos on Corona, Vodka, Whiskey, Rum and Gin. Also look out for 2 EUR Jaegermeisters and 1 EUR Apple Sourz shots.

Because of everything mentioned above only people over 18 years old are allowed.

There is free Wi-Fi running smoothly throughout the entire building.

Very Good
Sep 20, 2023
Location was amazing - very central, everything was within a half-an-hour walk. Room was tidy, ensuite with shower was clean. Towels and bedding were provided. I was unlucky and got one of the rooms in the sister building up 4 flights of stairs (no elevator). Unfortunately there was no kitchen or common room, only the bar and restaurant area.

It doesn't have a kitchen to cook yourself, it doesn't have a hangout space that it's not a bar,they're barely any good chairs. The cages where you store your belongings makes the most annoying noise when you open them which will wake you and your roommates whenever someone uses them. I heard one of the receptionists ask another one if they ever had COVID because she didn't have a sense of smell at the moment, but "didn't think was covid". They have one washing machine and one dryer.

St Christopher's at The Winston says

Yo diría que una de las características más singulares de nuestro albergue es que hemos invitado a varios diseñadores de la zona para decorar cada una de nuestras habitaciones con temas extraños a la vez que fabulosos. Somos adictos a la atención al cliente y hacemos todo lo posible para que nuestros huéspedes se sientan como en casa. Nuestro personal los trata como si fueran amigos o familia, por lo que no es raro verlos a todos juntos compartiendo vivencias en nuestra gran sala de fumadores. Tenemos el Barrio Rojo en nuestro patio trasero y el Palacio Real es nuestro vecino. A un par de manzanas está el Jordaan, un barrio pintoresco y puramente holandés que es genial para explorar en bicicleta. Tiene canales con las famosas casas-barco, edificios de arquitectura clásica y multitud de tiendas y restaurantes.
