“Not Bad.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Internet doesn't work in some rooms and the rooms are too small. Faucet broke down, it dush water.I think its price is a little bit high. Faucet broke down, it dush water. But very good location and nice staff.

Staff was very friendly and easy to talk to. Free wifi and what ever food you want at any time of the day. Had full Irish breakfast everyday with no complaints. Located seconds from the centre with lots of night life on the door step. No smoking in the bar too!

Durty Nellys is a hostel located just above an irish bar.
Afraid i wouldnt be able to sleep, but that didnt seem to be a problem. Note that i didnt stay there during a weekend, that might be a different story.
Still, hostels with a good location and good quality is always hard to find. Therefore, Durty Nellys is just like any other city hostel. Basic comfort, a bit overpriced, just what you expect from a hostel actually. As it is located above a bar, the hostel itself is rather dull. All is to do in the pub. Main attraction is actually the location, right in the red light district, surrounded by coffeeshops and all is in walking distance.

Seemed a good pub, spent several hours in there drinking / spending money.
Twice used toilets - no problem.
When it got busy they started charging to use the toilet. Quite understand cost for people not using the pub but after spending a lot of money at the bar I would have thought toilet should be free.

Money taken with menaces by heavy set mouthy woman who took no prisoners. She reliably informs me toilets are chargeable in all euro cities. We'll I'm well travelled and this is not true.

Avoid this rip off at all costs

Hi,Glad to hear that you enjoyed our pub and sorry that you don't agree with our weekend toilet charge of 20 cent.To be honest we very rarely receive any negatives about this charge as most people appreciate clean and safe [no drug taking]facilities.This charge is very common in the Netherlands and Belgium [in bars,McDonalds and rail stations etc]As we are nearly €2 per pint cheaper than most similar sized bars I don't think we can be said to be a rip off.I appreciate that this charge annoys some people but I don't think describing the lady as ^heavyset^ was nescessary.Thanks Jim

I found the room pretty clean comparing to many other hostels. Very central next to red light district. Great staff and bar where i spent most of the evening. A little bit noisy in the room, but it didn't bother me. Trvelled early, so i didn't have time to stay for breakfast, but i got a sandwich from the night staff wich was awesome!

Located actually right next to the red light this hostel was so easy to get to and from. We stayed in a room with all guys, which was kinda weird because we were girls, but it wasn't bad. Not the cleanest place I have ever been. Breakfast in the morning was very average but the staff is very helpful and very nice! The actual food in the restaurant wasn't bad, but Amsterdam had amazing food - go and look for something else. We did the pub crawl through the hostel one night - fun for a younger crowd, but the "unlimited" shots are just dilluted vodka they give you, not actually from the bar. Some people in the hostel were really noisey, but thats just part of traveling. The hostel also gave great advice and directions and was easy to get to from the train station.

This hostel has a great vibe, people working there are amazing, and will help you get around Amsterdam.
Too bad the rooms are really small, and not clean.

I would stay there again, just because it is that much close to the city center, and all the good night life spots to check out.
