“Good stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Arrived here for a few days with friends. I misread an email and found that we hadn't booked a 6 bed but a 4 bed instead but thankfully they could accommodate my other friends with no hassle which was kind. Great location and felt safe even being in the red light. Only thing I would mention is that the rooms are very tiny so with a lot of people it is near impossible to manoeuvre yourselves in there. Other than that would recommend!

Good place for a group to head. This place is all about the location, very central and convenient. The rooms are tight for space but then you don't go the Amsterdam to sit in your room!

We had 16 people in our group that headed over and we had no hassle and a great time. We ate in the pub and had some beer to star t they day here. The pints are cheaper for residents and the food was quiet good!

Durty Nellys is like an avalanche of awesome!!! Maybe that phrase is thrown around all too casually these days, but probably not. The location is great, the staff are friendly, outgoing, and extremely helpful, you get discounts downstairs on food and drinks if you're staying there, security is great, and everything is kept super clean. Its got charm. This has got to be one of the best hostels in Amsterdam!

The location was fantastic - you are right in the red light district but be prepared for a bit of street noise at night. The staff were fantastic - very friendly and helpful! Breakfast was a little basic - just toast and cornflakes. Be prepared with the stairs - very steep and narrow but like most of Amsterdam. Difficult with heavy luggage. Also the rooms are small but once again like most of Amsterdam. Overall great stay!!

I stayed at Durty Nelly's for two nights in August as part of a stag do. Location was fantastic right in the heart of Amsterdam! Service was great especially from Dave behind the bar who was very knowledgeable about the area. The room consisited of two bunk beds and a bathroom which was very clean and to a higher standard than we all expected. Most importantly for the purposes of the weekend the beer (in this case Amstel) was good quality and served at a discounted price for residents of the hostel. The group also took part in the bar crawl organised by Durty Nelly's which was a great night that took us to bars we wouldn't normally of visited as well as a karaoke bar and free entry to a night club!

Was in Amsterdam for 2 nights on a stag doo with a group of 8 and Nellys did not disappoint. Location is prime, on a lively street but tucked away from the real smut so ideal.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly at all times and made the stay very enjoyable. Discount prices for people staying at the hostel are very generous too.
All in all an excellent budget option, would easily recommend.

Super clean, the staff were super friendly, they had good lockers for your things and the location was great. The stairs were a little scary and narrow though. I would definitely stay here again. You get discounted food and drink in the bar which is great.
