A group of 8 (3 girls, 5 guys) of us went to Amsterdam for 3 days in March and had the greatest time! I love this party hostel and when traveling with a large group of friends it is perfect! We stayed in an 8 person room, which was nice that there was 8 of us and we didn't stay with people we didn't know, although you can probably meet some awesome people that way and have the best time of your life!

The beds are bunk beds so they are not that comfortable but when your just looking for a place to crash after a long night of partying it works out great! The room had one shower for us to share and in a separate part with one toilet. so at least they weren't together! There was also lock boxes under the bunk beds so if you bring a lock you could put all your valuables in there. The hostel was very centrally located! It was also very reasonable priced!

The bar attached was amazing! Played the best rock n' roll music and we spent a lot of time there just drinking and the food was also really good too! The breakfast provided to us was very good and healthy, typical european breakfast spread! Which I really liked! People that weren't even staying at the hostel would come to the bar to party! it was always packed at night!

I would recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to Amsterdam with friends and looking to have a good time!

Hey Amanda,
Great of you to write such a detailed review for us. It really seems like you and your crew were a good fit to our style here at The Winston. Awesome that you appreciated our playlists too. We put our hearts and souls into our music and nice that you noticed.
You're welcome back anytime in our hostel and our bar so don't be a stranger!
Thanks again,
Take care Amanda

The best thing about this place is the location. A short walk from the Central Station, just around the corner of Dam Square. The lively Warmoestraat outside and the Red Light Disctrict behind it. The Hostel is all right, but nothing special. It is a bit noisy and a bit "trashy", and I don't reckon the service was too good. But I didn't care, because it was cheap, easy and filled my needs. Perfect for backpackers. The bar downstairs is also a nice place to meet other travelers. I would come again.

Hello Daniel mate,
Good of you to write to us. Its always interesting to read what each and every one of our guests thinks about our hostel and about our location. Very true that we really are right in the middle of all the action, and we can certainly appreciate that on busy weekends the noise can drift over a bit from the Red Light District behind us. You are absolutely right that we cater mainly for the backpacker crowd but Amsterdam is such an awesome city that it attracts all sorts of colourful characters and fills our hostel with a range of interesting people.
We're glad you enjoyed yourself and appreciate you taking the time to leave a review.

Stayed here for two days/ two nights, the staff were helpful on arrival and were always available whenever needed and the calm and casual atmosphere makes it very easy to feel settled quite quickly. Our room was exactly worth what we paid (£32/€35) for, comfortable beds, en suite, clean and well looked after, and the decor inside definitely gave us a reminder where we were! Despite their being a nightclub attached to the side of the hotel our nights sleep was uninterupted, however we were staying a bit further away so I cannot say this would be the same throughout the Hotel. Food and Drinks were reasonably priced, only downside is that it is somewhat tricky to find at first, but once found relatively easy to find again. Would highly recommend!

Hey mate. Great to see you settled in so quickly. Amsterdam does have that homely feel, which is why many of us end up staying. Even if it can feel like a bit of a maze at times ; ) Our team will be happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us so much. A very cool review. Thanks

Booked in here last minute to avoid a nightmare hostel down the road. Fantastic location just on the cusp of the red light. Close enough to enjoy the nightlife but not have to suffer the noise. Despite what has been said in previous reviews i had a great nights sleep even with a window open. My room was to the side however so aim to get a room there.

Twin room basic but servicable and good standard for a hostel. Fresh linen and even towels thrown in. Discounts at the bar for drinks and food. Food i had was a good standard and relatively cheap for Dam. Smoking room downstairs and both this and the bar were packed with 20-30 year olds up for a craic. Would stay again ahead of hotels i have stayed in before and on this same trip.

Room Tip: Get one down the side for quieter time

Hey. Great to see you made the most of our central location. It is really is true that we are right in the heart of all the action in Amsterdam. We trust you used your hotel security card to get further discounts on food and drink in the bar as well ; ) Thanks for taking the time to both read our reviews and write your own
