St Christopher's at Winston Hotel

Reviewed 22 April 2014

The place is in a good location, close to the Central Station and very easy to find. There are pubs and shops nearby and I even did an independent pubcrawl one night. There is also a bar inside the hotel in which guests can get discounts (the bartenders are awesome and the people are great). I booked a shared room with 8 people. It was a surprise to see that the rooms were really clean and the beds were all comfortable. Although there were a lot of people in one room, it didn't seem crowded, because everyone had their own schedule. Breakfast is really great too, a lot of options and I couldn't get enough. It's obviously not a 5-star hotel, but for their price, it was pretty amazing.

We stayed here for three nights.
The hostel is very close to the central station, red light distric and Daam square, so it is ideally placed. It was also very easy to get to other parts of the city on foot from here.
We had a twin room, but were able to push the beds together, which worked out a cheap way to get a double room. The room was a good size, though the bathroom was a little bit small (watchout for the exposed hot water pipe in the shower!!). It was a little bit noisy at night, and having the windows was a risk, depending how much you like to smell weed 24/7
The breakfast was VERY good and ample, that was a ncie suprise. We did eat the first night in the hostel (you get a booklet of discounts for the bar), and the food was OK.
Staff were friendly. We didn't bother with the rule about depositing the key when you go out - this seems a little bit unecessary.
Overall, this hostel is fine for the location and it is comfortable. however, if you want a quiet night's sleep, then this may not be the best place for you.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms next to the streets (I'm not sure if this is possible)

Hello!
Great of you to leave us such a detailed review; it helps us as much as it helps potential visitors to the city, as it your feedback that drives the changes we make,
No doubt about it we have a top location, as you said, and we're glad to see that you were able to benefit from being so close to all the major sights. Awesome that you could do it on a full stomach as well,
Cool that you figured out the trick with the beds, but our staff are also happy to do this for you too haha Many of of rooms are adjustable for exactly this reason, and we can also just move people who are particularly light sleepers or simply fancy a change of scenery,
Thanks again for taking the time to write. For this, we are sure we can forgive you for breaking the rules with the key haha
Take care,

What a great place to stay . Superb location right in the heart of Amsterdam. Close to red lights (1min) close to coffee shops (more then 10 within 10 mins walk ) a bit noisy buy who cares it's Amsterdam and we all can sleep back at home. If I ever will go back to Amsterdam I will definitely stay there . Excellent .

Hello there,
Great to see you found our central location so convenient, and there are actually even more nearby coffee shops and attractions than you saw : ) But we admit, 10 is probably enough haha
You are welcome back anytime and don't forget to book through our own website so that you get a discount on your next visit to any St Christopher's in Europe,
Cheers for the review,
All the best,

Love this place, awesome location 10 min walk from the train thru Dam Square...great vibe and the only bar I found in Amsterdam to serve Bundeberg Rum, so that makes it a winner.

Rooms are small, Im a big dude so it was a little tight but for the 6 hrs or less I spent there each night it was fine...

Dont miss the happy hour, great drink specials and good pub food...

Id go back here in a heartbeat...Prices can get a bit steep for the room with separate bath but if your on holidays, its worth a splurge a little bit here...

Hello mate,
What a great review. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and clearly made the most of our bar.
It's funny for us that it was our Bundy rum that stood for you. We have plenty of Aussie beers too, and much of our management comes from there as well, which means that it's always a lot of fun,
Always remember that the further ahead you book then the better the price, and don't forget to check out our own website for the best deals in town ; )
Cheers

Great place to stay if you're travelling alone or with friends. It's really close to almost every sightseeing in Amsterdam. Great pub atmosphere downstairs and nice night club right next to it. Try to avoid stay in the rooms with windows to the street... It can be really noise at night.

Room Tip: Try to avoid stay in the rooms with windows to the street... It can be really noise at night.

Hey,
Thanks for the review,
It seems as though you found everything you needed under one roof,
Sorry if the noise from the street outside can get a bit too much at times - the Red Light District is right on our doorstep and is full of lively characters at night,
Safe onward travels

Best thing about this hostel was the location, you can walk to most of the sights and museums if you have a good pair of shoes. Female dorm with 8 beds was actually 2 rooms with 4 beds in each. Room where I stayed was nice and clean and I was lucky to share the room with girls who had quite similar plans for their visit than me. Staff was helpful and friendly and restaurant and bar were pleasant. Only downside was that noises from the bar were quite loud, but the problem is solved with earplugs.

Hello,
We're glad to see you enjoyed your time in the girl's dorm. There are a few little extra features up there, which we know make a huge difference for our female travelers, and the additional privacy goes a long way too,
We hope you enjoy the rest of your trip as much as you did your time in Amsterdam,
Thanks for writing,

I had my stag in Amsterdam. Couldn't have had a better time. The Winston is an excellent hostel. It's safe. Central. Prices are good. Food is great. Rooms are clean and the staff are friendly. Bottles 2 for the price before 9. Shorts 2 for the price of one between 9 and 12. It's my 3rd time there and I'm sure I'll stay again.
