St. Christopher's is in the middle of everything you'd want to see. With the Red Light District right around the corner, you can see everything in Amsterdam you need/want to see. Having a bar and smoke room so close was very nice, but also got annoying when you wanted some down time. The boxes to lock your luggage in got... More

This is a cool, funky and lively hotel in the very heart of the of all the fun. The room was very small and a little worn and tired but clean and comfortable. Don't expect peace and quiet but do expect good value and a great location.

8 of us stayed here over a weekend in October and I cannot fault. The location, staff and food were fab! It was great for what we wanted and I would recommend to anyone looking for the perfect party hotel. It has its own nightclub and is in the perfect location for the red light and dam square.

I stayed at this hostel when backpacking through Europe. I previously stayed at st christophers in Paris which was quite good. The location in Amsterdam is good central to everything the red light district, trams, buses, water taxis, museums etc. Only big issue I had that I didn't know was that there is a night club under the hostel, as...

Clean dorm room. It's on the street adjacent to the red light district which you may love but personally I found all the neon lights and shops a bit much! We missed our breakfast because of a time zone difference but the staff still brought us out bread, cheese and ham which was much appreciated. Staff were very helpful -... More

Great location. Walking distance to Baba coffee Shop and Amsterdam Centraal. Noise level is high as it is between a Pub & a disco. Drink more before sleep. Security after hours is good as well. I was asked for my room card before able to enter the Hostel. Digital Locker provided at the lobby with a fee.

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.
