“Perfect location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Location wise, the hostel is perfect. A short 5 minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal Station and just down the road from Dam Square and the red light district. There are various bars, cafe's and coffee shops all within a stones throw from the hostel. Surprisingly, although this is smack bang in the middle of everything, I found each night's sleep to be very quiet with little to no outside noise (I was on level 5 though).

I stayed in a 5 bed dorm with bathroom. The bathroom was older but still quite nice, though the walls weren't too thick so you heard all kinds of monstrosities taking place in there! The beds are comfortable enough, though my top bunk's charging port was situated towards the lower bunk which made charging challenging and no beds had individual lights or room to put your belongings on. The unique thing about each room is the paintings and design on the walls. I had some strange looking creature staring at me everywhere I looked which was interesting. The room did however have a balcony which was nice, although due to the cold it wasn't used much.

There are lockers on the side of the room with individual trunks below the beds. Although this is a great idea, it doesn't suit large suitcases. There is also a bar downstairs, however I didn't really utilize this. Staff were friendly and the check in/out process was good.

Overall, a good hostel that could do with some minor improvements. Would go back.

A guy came to my room , opened MY trunk out of 8 trunks,then he went into my duffel bag which had my passport holder and money.Obviously he stole the money and left my passport.(I am pretty thankful for that).But how this robber knew exactly where to look in the bag where the three of us have kept money and be quick enough to escape i have no idea.Oh and i did have a lock on this trunk which was broken and thrown away...Everytime i asked for the manager i was made to wait 15-30 mins and then i would just give up..I did meet him once and asked him to send the cctv footage to the police,but since i couldnt meet him again because of his busy schedule or whatever so i cant say if he did submit it.FYI we lost more than 4000Euros on the second day of our trip...If anyone goes here you should think twice or rather keep your money on yourselves because your not going to get any help from the hotel nor the police...Amsterdam was awesome though..

Stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm with two of my girl friends. It was spotless, very safe and secure. The food was lovely. The bar was great and there was a lovely atmosphere. Will be coming back again soon, thank you!

Room Tip: I know my room, room 5, and the others on that row, were very sound proof.

St Christopher's is by far one of the best hostels I have stayed in. To start with it is located 5 mins outside the centraal station, so its extremely convenient to get there. The location is a big plus point, the party starts and ends here! The rooms although small are very comfortable and have all the basic amenities that one would require. You would forget all about the room size once you look at the impressive graffiti that adorns the wall. Every room has a different graffiti and they are all brilliant and certainly add to your experience at the Christophers. The bar downstairs Belushi plays the best music all through the day and has the most amazing vibe. Winstons Kingdom next door is a great place to party and witness some real good live music. But the best part about Christophers is certainly the staff. They will put a smile on your face as soon as you enter and you would hate leaving the place when its time to check out. 10 on 10!

Room Tip: Highly recommend the private rooms for two. The graffiti will make your stay memorable!

Such a convenient location, it's only a five minutes walk from the Central Station. Great rooms and lovely people both at the bar and at the reception. Evenings at the bar are the best with good food, drinks and lots of people! Highly recommended :)

I have stayed in some shockers in Amsterdam, so was pleased to find St Christopher's this time. The hostel was very good - conveniently located, clean, safe etc. The staff were friendly, the rooms were not too small. The free breakfast was good and there was free wifi, although it didn't work in my room. There is a nice social atmosphere in the hostel and a nice bar downstairs. We came back late at night at they checked our room keys to make sure we were staying at the hostel when we arrived back - it was reassuring to see that they care about the security at the hostel. The bed itself wasn't that comfortable, and the room was quite noisy as it was backing onto the street, but otherwise I was satisfied.

We're pleased to see that we satisfied your needs a lot more than the other hostels in Amsterdam you stayed at. We're sorry to read that the Wi-Fi was acting up whilst you were staying here, and will look into it. In regards to the noise, please note that we offer free ear plugs in reception, which might just see you through an extra few hours of sleep. Thanks for your feedback! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

The thing about this hostel is again, it's location. It is walking distance from Centraal station and most of the sights. I could easily come back to access the wifi and download maps before proceeding to the next sight. Overall, friendly staff, but the breakfast could have a little more variety for vegetarians. I stayed for one night, and apart from the regular church chimes, there wasn't much to disturb this sound sleeper.

Room Tip: If you're choosing the hostel rooms, don't go for more than a 4-seater, else it gets really...
