“Great Place For A Pint.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Whilst I didn't stay at Durty Nelly's I spent a lot of time there on my recent visit to Amsterdam, in a good location a short walk from Dam Square. Its a great bar with excellent food and the bar staff are all friendy, Derek is a top man.
The bar has all the sports channels , and a good atmosphere, when I next visit Amsterdam I wiil definately be back to sink a few pints in Nelly's .

Don't come here if you want a peaceful, quiet hostel. You come here as an awesome party base. I had an excellent introduction & welcome from the staff. The bar has great priced drinks and food for hostel guests which helps when money is tight. You're right in amongst a very busy party area. It's very easy to walk from Amsterdam centraal station, even loaded up with a pack. I was upgraded from an 8 mixed dorm, to an all girls 4 for no extra. The room was small but clean w/ lockers. I'd stay again

Great location and right next to everything. The room is what you expect. Just watch out for the price. we had in writing the quote but when we got there they said it was wrong and wanted over a hundred quid more and they were very aggressive about getting it.

The best thing about Durty Nelly's is the location, it is right in the middle of coffeeshops and the red light district, it is also very close to Centraal station.

I stayed at Durty Nelly's for 3 nights and had a great time, there is a pub underneath the hostel where they run a pub crawl (which I attended and had a blast! highly recommended.)

The only negative to this place is it can be quite noisy at night with all the drunk tourists roaming around, I would still definitely recommend this place.

I stayed with a friend and I really enjoyed it! The offered us everything they had for the travelers; tours for knowing better the city, the stuff were very friendly... and breakfast time was so delicious! I really like the idea that we had a bar downstairs so it made it easy for us (we were two girls in red light district by ourself) so we had the opportunity to enjoy amsterdam in a safe way and of course having fun!

My friend and I wanted to spend New Year's Eve in Amsterdam and we decided to stay at Durty Nelly's (mainly because the other hostels were full). Best decision ever! The staff were super friendly and helpful. The ambiance of the bar is fantastic and a great place to chill out in the evenings (specially if you're too tired to go anywhere else).

Agreed, the breakfast isn't top-notch, but compared to other places we've travelled to, it is pretty OK. Rooms weren't too shabby either. We stayed at an ensuite and it was clean. Wouldn't mind staying here again.

Walking up Warmoestraat I wouldn't usually eat, however the offering of Irish stew and soda bread was too attractive. Still I didn't have my hopes up.

But . . .

Durty Nellys have served me one of the best meals I have ever had in Amsterdam. Despite its location prices are reasonable and the food isn't like the usual s**t on a polystyrene plate you get next door.

Friendly staff and a great atmosphere in the bar. highly recommended!
