St Christopher’s at the Winston - to meet new friends

If you're searching for the best hostels in Amsterdam to party and meet friends, then say hello to your buddy for the robbery. The 97% location means a 5 minutes walk from the train station and the Red Light District is the back garden of the hostel .... literally. There is no curfew (obvs) a busy bar and a free "breakfast buffet that will bring most hostels to shame" – the words of the client. But that solves the inevitable hangover!
