5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I love this hostel. They have everything! Wifi everywhere, good food at the bar with a generous discount, smoking areas, 24hr reception - I can't fault it! I stay here every time I visit Amsterdam, it's my first choice always. I would, and do, recommend this to friends. It's in such a great location as well, the icing on the cake really. I do say if you're gonna be staying in the Dam you should stay here. You won't be disappointed :)

This hostel's location cannot be beat. Tons of nearby eateries & pubs. You can easily walk to everything, including Centraal Station. The staff was very friendly & helpful. I read many reviews before booking. Some reviewers complained about the noise from the club on the lower floors, but it was pretty muffled in our room and didn't keep us up at all. We had a 5th floor private room with private bath. Our room was clean. The shower was hot, and we were provided with fresh towels, soap & shampoo. Breakfast is included and much appreciated. Free wifi. We had an excellent experience, and hope to return soon.

The location of the hostel is wonderful. It is surrounded by bars, restaurants, dessert places and about 5 minutes from Dam Square. The bar downstairs seemed to be packed each night, and had drink specials!

Overall the rooms were clean, but I personally was not a fan of the decor. Our room had paintings from The Shining.. very creepy..

Other than the tacky room theme, I was satisfied with my stay at this hostel!

We stayed as a group of five 21 year old girls and all a bit weary of Hostels but we were so suprised. Location from central station and anywhere in the city was perfect, our room was really clean and had five single beds and a huge bathroom. Food in the bar was really nice and you get a discount if you are a guest, aswell as two for one drinks in the evening which was great as drinks were quite expensive everywhere else and the athmosphere was really good in the evening so we didn't mind staying in the Hostel bar.

Room Tip: We were on the 7th floor and was quiet from the hostel but the street was noisy from workers in the...

The location is amazing! Right in the center of old Amsterdam within walking distance of pretty much everything, and just a 7 min. walk to Centraal Station. I booked at the very last minute, coming from Paris by train and it was the only place that had the just 1 bed available! All other hostels were fully booked since it was a weekend. I read some good reviews so I was expecting a nice place. Long story short, I couldn't have made a better decision for a place to stay in Amsterdam! Rooms are well dimensioned and they were excellent, bathrooms were super clean! Clean bed sheets everyday, and there's always a party or something going on in the lobby! Reception and staff were more than excellent and very helpful! I know where I'm staying for my next trip to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors are much more quiet with a nice balcony to check out the old roofs of Ams...

Excellent to see that you had such a good stay with us, and that you had a good time in Amsterdam. For our future guests we would just like to add that we don't actually provide clean bed sheets every single day, but that this happened to be the case with your reservation, because of some last-minute extensions of the reservation. Thank you for your review and we'd be happy to have you again! - St. Christopher's at The Winston

St Christopher's was a great place to stay with a flip of friends especially considering the great atmosphere in the bar at night! Bar staff are friendly and the rooms are clean. Well located for walking anywhere in the centre and only 5 mins walk from central station. I would definitely use them again and recommend them for a stay especially when tight on budget...enjoy!

i've been there in last june
its a good hostel , good bar , nice breakfast , really delicious
the locations is amazing , just 10 meters away from the red light district
problem with the location is that its not really quite , till early morning
lots of drunk people walking down there , and you need to open the windows if the weather is not really cold out there , so , you gotta chose , sleep or fresh air
showers are normal , not bad not good
but at the end , over all is very nice
