St. Christopher's @ The Winston
Property name: St. Christopher's @ The Winston
Right in the heart of Amsterdam, just a stone’s throw from the Royal Palace, between Dam Square and the Red Light District and only a 5 minute walk to the central train station, lies 'St. Christopher's at the Winston' with its unique art hotel and budget Amsterdam hostel rooms. Most rooms and all the hallways have been designed by local and international artists, like the Green room, the Durex room, the Absolute Danny room and the Billy the Kid room. You’re going to need some refuge from the army of unstoppable bikes so maybe you'll end up in the Eastpack room with it's giant backpack beanbag or pass out under the watchful eye of a life size robot in the Playnation room? All rooms are completely unique and all worth a look. The hostel also has Amsterdam's one and only Belushi's Bar where you'll find comfy couches, good music, great food and drink promotions all year round. We have 2-4-1 drink promotions on Beck's, Jameson & cola, Absolut vodka & mixer and €1 Jägermeisters. We also cook up the best burgers around, toss some tasty salads, spice up some hot curries and roll out fresh daily specials.The private outdoor garden overlooks the playground of the red light ladies and next door, you can get your groove back at the Winston Kingdom Nightclub. Each month the line up is steaming hot and you can see the best live music and DJs, seven nights a week. The staff are backpacking, bilingual, friendly and integrated with everything cultural. They can hook you up with parties and venues to suit all tastes and they'll put a smile on your face as they do it. Dam Square is a two minute walk away and a great place to get your bearings. From here you can head west to Anne Frank's house, south to the Van Gogh museum and east to Rembrandt's house. There are canal tours galore, coffee shops left, right and centre and exhibits that will make your head spin. Sandemans New Europe will take you on a free walking tour of Amsterdam which leaves from our check-in desk at 11am every morning. The tour takes about 3 hours and the guides speak English and Spanish.The Dutch capital is a city like no other. Where else can you find guided tours of a red light district, Rembrandt's house, the Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank's house, Tulips, “coffee shops” and cheap beer? Old blends into new, radical squatter art installations hang off 17th century eaves, BMW's give way to bicycles and triple strength, monk brewed beer is served up in minimalist cafes. And St. Christopher’s at the Winston is your first culture stop in this over the top Dutch city.
