The rooms aren't much to brag about, but you get a bed, shower, and breakfast. Plus, the staff does everything they can to make sure you get the best experience in Amsterdam. It's not that far of a walk from the train station and there is plenty to do in the area. Contrary to what many people think of the... More

We booked for 20 people in this hostel - so it was quite a large amount of people (and money). Result: they did not let us pay in advance and when we arrived said we should pay before having access to the rooms (the person paying was arriving later). Result: our group members had to pay to leave the bags... More

I've been going to Amsterdam nearly every year since 1992. This is by far the best place I have ever stayed. I found this hostel 3 years ago through on an online review site (not this one) and have stayed here each year since. It's that good. It is a hostel so expect the hustle and bustle of one. But...

Just got back from Amsterdam where my friend and I stayed at The Winston hostel. I basically have only good things to say about this place! I almost always stay in hotels when I travel, but as I was with a girlfriend of mine we thought it would be fun to try out a hostel – much easier for meeting... More
