St Christopher's at Winston Hotel
Ranked #12 of 238 Specialty Lodging in Amsterdam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We had a 2 night stay in this hostel for our first trip to Amsterdam. You can't beat the location! The hostel is a short walk from the train station and the street it is located on has a lot of great food options as well as a lot of the 'coffee shops'. Also very close to the red light district. Another pro is the bar attached to the hostel, which has great food.

The rooms themselves are nothing to write home about. Our bathroom must have had a leak or something because we had a constant puddle of water in the middle of the floor the entire time. Also, as other reviewers have mentioned - the wifi is a little in and out sometimes.

Overall, I would recommend just on location alone. It's a good party hostel and how often are you in your room anyway?

My friend and I are both people that would generally prefer to stay at hotels but we stayed in this particular hostel in Amsterdam and it was AMAZING! We stayed in a private room with a private bathroom which was awesome! Each of the rooms have a different theme which is interesting to say the least when experiencing the true Amsterdam way haha. The hotel has a cool little bar/pub downstairs which was busy most nights we were there. The hostel is SO central! Just a short walk from the main square (food, shops etc). We walked everywhere in Amsterdam so this was a great starting point. Don't think twice!

The hostel is in a excellent location, right in the middle of the red light district... You can find fun all around and in the very same hostel's pub.
The beds are comfy and very clean... Having your own shower and bathroom was definitely a plus!

Room Tip: Rooms above the garden can be noisy

Such a pity I just stayed there for one night. Excellent location (I didn't get lost trying to get there, which means a lot), and clean spacious rooms (actually the first hostel room I've ever been to that had a bathroom). What I liked the most was actually the bar, a good place to meet people. And, how could I forget, excellent staff. So when I'm in Amsterdam next time, I'll definitely stay there. People, St. Christopher's is a great place! Although perhaps too expensive, unfortunately.

We stayed in a 4 bed private ensuite. Room was clean. Had a great balcony that all the rooms led out to and we met people in the rooms next to us. Room had great artistic features that we were told are different in all the rooms. Atmosphere was awesome, the food in the bar is definitely worth it.. much cheaper than looking for somewhere as Amsterdam prices are very high. There is a smoking lounge downstairs too so it caters for most needs! Staff were great, really suited to the place. Would recommend!

I was really excited about the artist element to this hostel but unfortunately must have landed the most boring possbile room

It was very compact, but clean. Centre of the red light district which I thought would be best as we hadnt been to Amsterdam before but I would maybe now stay slightly further away. Its seemed a bit expensive for what it was but was ok

The Bellushis bar downstairs was alot of fun and the food was amazing
