“Smack bang inside the Red Light District”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

Great location stayed here for 5 nights, only 2 minutes away from Dam Square - red light district you are in it!!! We got the private room with ensuite on the 7th floor with the art work of the "lady suggestively taking off her panties". Room is spacious, and receives great natural sunlight. Room also had a bathtub and shower, hot water was immediate, so you don't have to wait. They make up your room every day, which I thought was very nice. There is also a TV, side table lamp and small table with two chairs contained within the room. Access to the room is either via elevator or stairs. Plenty of power sockets in the room - 4 in total. Breakfast is of good standard and comes free which is great. There is no kitchen, but the bar food is really tasty and affordable (you get 25% off if your staying at the hostel). In terms of noise, it can get loud at night from the bar downstairs, but the reception staff offer earplugs if your a light sleeper. So far the best St Christopher's inn I have stayed in!

As an older female it wasn't the best place to stay because if the location and extreme noise but in saying that, the beds are comfy, showers hot and the owners very friendly and helpful. We had a small problem with our room and they were extremely keen to resolve it.

Stayed for 2 nights and we originally chose this hostel as it was close to the train station (Centraal). We also discovered it was really close to a lot of the main attractions (Dam Square, Red Light District) and public transport. All the staff (bar and reception) were extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in a private double ensuite room. The rooms and below streets were noisy at night but what else to you expect in Amsterdam on a weekend? The bar down stairs serves good food and cheap drinks and there were plenty of places close by to eat, drink and smoke. Would not hesitate in recommending this place to young people travelling.

Stayed in the hostel for 4 nights with my partner. I've done a lot of travelling in my time and stayed in many hostels and would recommend this place to others. On this occassion I wasn't in a dorm room, so from this respect I can't comment, however the double rooms had own balconies and ensuite and very comfortable. I would recommend this place for anyone aged 18 to 30, and would say definitely not family friendly (mainly for the pornographic pictures you may find around about the place!!). They offer 25% off all the bar food, which was very good, 2 for 1 on a selection of drinks, and breakfast is included. The location is very central, a 5 min walk from train station, tram stops, canal boat cruises, Dam Square and red light district - what more could you ask for. If you are that way inclined, there are plenty of coffee shops nearby and smoking areas at the hostel.

Room Tip: I stayed on the 6th floor, which had a shared balcony, great to sit out and catch some sun in the mo...

The Winston is a fun hotel for a short stay in Amsterdam. It is centrally located, within a short walk from Centraal, and the rooms are each designed with different and unique decor. The hotel has a great club, with good DJs, on the ground floor, and from the front door it is a short distance to restaurants, the tram, and bars, to name a few. I wouldn't say this is the cleanest or quietest hotel, but that is far from the point if you're staying here.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are unique. Select one that looks down on Warmoesstraat, for a nice view of the loc...

Stayed here with some friends traveling through Europe in April and loved it. Cheap, well run, good bar, nothing to complain about. Also a great location in the Red Light District, with great security.
