This Hostel is a A*+ Rating. I'm not an easily pleased customer, however at the Winston the service is efficient and friendly and the decor and atmosphere in the Hostel is fab! I travelled with a friend for her 21st Birthday on the Fri 24th Jan - Mon 27th Jan, of where we stayed at the Winston in a 6 bed mixed dorm. Both female and I would say we both didn't find the Hostel area 'Seedy' like it says in some reviews I came across. The location of the Hostel is excellent! 2 mins from Dam square and 5 Mins to the Central station (Do not get confused between the two when looking for transportation once you arrive in Amsterdam to the Hostel.) However you do have some of the Redlight district to the back of you, parallel with the Hostel, we did not find this a problem at all but I know some might. The street of where the Hostel is located is packed with Cafe's, Bar's, Food outlets, the Winston's own nightclub; 1/2 price entry to guests! and also the Infamous 'Condom Shop'. The Food at the Hostel is like decent pub grub in the UK, The bed's are incredibly comfortable (esp. for bunk beds.), the cleanliness of the Hostel is to a 4* Hotel standard, fresh bed linen and towels per day, indoor and outdoor smoking area, electronic lockers for baggage - 4 euro for the whole day (If you have a late flight). The only reservation I would say would be that once on one night I heard the nightclub's music and I was on the 5th floor, however it wasn't unbearable and rolled over and went back to sleep - as I guess most of the guests there are intoxicated (as was I), so it doesn't matter too much. It also looked so much better than any other Hostel we passed on that street. Would certainly Recommend this Hostel 100% if you are visiting Amsterdam and are on the search for Hostels I'd say you would get no better than here. Can not sing it's praises more. BOOK UP! In addition I am glad that I have booked my Paris stay with this chain, I look forward to see what is on offer there!
