Hostel is in a great location right next to Dam square and within walking distance of all Amsterdams great canals and many of its sights. It has all the necessary amenities and provides everything needed in a hostel! I stayed in a room of 8 with an ensuite and it was a very comfortable stay! The beds were clean and... More

What an absolutely great hostel with a great price. All the staff were amazing, on more than one occasion the staff helped me to me my room as I was being chased by a 14ft Dragon (tripping my balls off). I would definitely be staying there again due to the service, location and price.

On the back of the red light district , St Christopher's is ideal base camp for exploring the city during the day and going out at night with coffee shops and clubs very close by . The winston club was a good night out depending on the music being played that night and was very handy as its next store... More

Very nice employees, and the rooms are nice with unique art in each room. It is perfect for a group of friends that are looking for a populated place where things happen at night. The hotel is located under a very popular bar, which is perfect for young adults looking for a great party. It is right next to the... More

When we arrived in Amsterdam we were pleasantly surprised to find just how centrally St Christopher's at the Winston was located. Less than a 2 minute stroll to Dam square and everything we wanted was walking distance. On arrival, the bar had a buzzing friendly atmosphere as we went through to reception. Reception were friendly and provided us with cards... More

This hostel was very secure, centrally located and well equipped for travellers. The rooms were very clean and the wifi worked without fail. We had metal boxes below our bed that could be padlocked shut which was great and there was also a fan in the room. The balance between a party hostel and one in which it was very... More

It's also a safe bet choosing a St Christopher's hostel, as you can expect a pretty solid, reliable level of service and facilities: the Winston was no different. The hostel is in a good location - super close to the main train station in Amsterdam, and in the heart of the Red Light District for those wanting to experience the... More

Thank you very much for your review! It's great to see that you enjoyed yourself so much with us! Two things we'd like to add for our future guests are that our Wi-Fi actually works throughout the whole building, and that our breakfast is not actually meant to be packed for lunch. We order a certain amount of bread that... More

The location of this hotel is perfect! It's exactly the place where all backpackers want to stay. We stayed in an 8-bed mixed dorm and it did have its own shower and toilet which was great. The only downside to the rooms were that it was extremely hot and the fan in the room didn't exactly help. The staff at... More

Good location: 2 minutes from Dam Square, 2 minutes from Bulldog Hotel and Coffeeshop, if you're into that. It's in the red light district, but not sketchy. Friendly staff: gave good recommendations for food. Suspicious stains on sheets and towels, but not a deal breaker. The bar downstairs really adds to the fun vibe of the place. Pub crawls come...

Great hostel to stay at if you're looking to meet people and party in Amsterdam. It's in a good location near the Red Light District and Dam Square. Accommodations are basic, but clean. I liked that there was a doorman at night and the outdoor balcony that wraps around some of the rooms was great.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
