I really loved Durty Nelly's. The wifi was going in and out the whole time we stayed there which was really frustrating, but an easy fix. The rooms were bright green, and the shower smelled weird, but other than that, I really really liked it. We had an Australian girl help us find the best spots in Amsterdam and helped... More

The rooms are tiny and as it is so very central, it is quite noisy. But that's the only negative thing you can find about this place. On the other hand there is so much nice to say about the hostel and especially the staff. Location: 5 Minute walk from the Main Station (Amsterdam Centraal), surrounded by bars, pubs, coffeeshops,...

It's located right in the red light district but what made this hostel stand out for me was the staff. Our first day there this Australian girl named Alex checked us in and she was awesome! Super friendly and helpful. She marked up a map for us with tons of stuff to do!

Hi,Nellys has had this charge at weekends since we opened over 20 years ago and while there are some [see other reviews]like yourself who disagree with it the vast majority are happy that we provide very clean and drugfree facilities for our customers and also keep our drinks at very reasonable prices in the heart of Amsterdam.I fully accept [and...

We popped in for a drink and a game of pool, very reasonably priced and the staff were very helpful, only there wasn't much room around the pool table for the ques when playing, but overall a lovely pub.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood 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.
