St Christopher’s At the Winston

Amsterdam can’t be summed up in words. You can only see it and breathe it to truly understand its electricity. So where better to base yourself than the neon-lit Red Light District?

St Christopher’s at The Winston is award-winning accommodation located in Downtown Amsterdam overlooking the bustling Red Light District. Just a 4 minute walk from Centraal station and Dam Square, it's the best party hostel in the city with its own epic nightclub, perfect for backpackers who love to party till late and meet new people.

You’ll find us within walking distance from the city’s major sights including the Anne Frank House, Madame Tussauds and the Rijksmuseum. After a day of sightseeing, make friends at the rockin’ hostel bar Belushi’s with a burger in one hand, and a beer in the other. Or put your feet up at one of the countless coffee shops on our doorstep...
