I was given the pleasure to stay at two different types of dorms at the hotel. I came to stay at the Winston last minute, and the last room they had available was an all female dorm. I can honestly say this was the best hotel I have stayed at! It was centrally located. Coffee shops, food places, a club...

I've stayed at this hostel multiple times. It is my go-to hostel for weekend trips to Amsterdam based on location, and cleanliness. The hostel itself is great, it has a bar, restaurant and a smoking room. It's down the street from a great bakery and loads of other great foods. The rooms seem to all be different! But one thing...

I stayed here as part of a group of 5 males. We booked a 5-bed dorm and filled it ourselves for the weekend. St. Christopher's had everything you would want in a hostel.

I stayed in a shared dorm and it was really dark and the shower smelled funky. The restaurant and bar in the front desk are awesome. The breakfast that is included is a really good breakfast and the hamburger is delicious. The location is pretty good if you want to stay really close to the red light district.

Amsterdam is all about having fun, and this hostel delivers. Location: it really does not get better than this if you are in Amsterdam to see the sights, and enjoy some time with friends.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
