“Want to get ripped off?... come here!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

I agree with the previous reviewer... this place is a shambles and a rip off. We arrived in Amsterdam with 120 euros. We dived into Durty Nelly's to dodge a heavy shower. We ordered two drinks and handed the barman (a chap with heavily tattooed arms) a 20 euro note - and he only gave change for 10. When my partner questioned this the response was rude and threatening and we had no choice but to accept we'd paid 15 euros for two halves of Murphy's! We hadn't spent a single euro anywhere else and we both saw the 20 euro note being handed over so we were 100% certain the mistake was not ours!! We then got talking to an American outside and he said exactly the same thing had happened to him. Do not go here unless you want to be robbed!!!

Stag party of 14 stayed here over the bank holiday weekend. We had an 8 bed dorm and a 6 bed dorm, each with private facilities.
It's walking distance from the train station and in the heart of the red light district.
Rare to find somewhere that accepts stag parties and also no curfew - open 24hrs!!!
Large stag parties have to pay a refundable €30 bond which we all knew about. Lockers are refundable €10 and towels are refundable €5.
Check-in was smooth and informative, no problems. There were three cubicles in the room, two had their own door - one was the toilet, one was the shower. The other cubicle is the basin with a mirror above it. Great having them all separate when you're in a large party as you don't have to wait to use a bathroom one at a time this way.
Guests receive discounts on pints of Amstel which was €3.50 instead of €5, plus discounts on bottles and various items from the food menu. We were buying cheeseburger and fries with a pint of Amstel for €10 which was very good.
The free breakfast consisted of tea/coffee, toast, cornflakes and a few other things. You could also buy a cooked full irish breakfast for €7.
They show all the premiership football on several screens and there are also some pool tables downstairs if you fancy a game.
We didn't see or hear any trouble at night, so no problem sleeping.
Staff were always helpful and polite.
Would definitely recommend this place to large groups.

Well. We were quoted a price online of 228€ which was confirmed through an email we received. On arrival, we were also told 228€ which we paid and proceeded to our room. However, half hour later we were disturbed by the management to tell us the price was actually 288€. For 4 young men on a budget stag do, an extra 60€ is a lot of money. We were ordered to pay this, and if not it would be taken off of the credit card which was registered, which is the credit card of our colleague who had to stay at home as his wife was taken severely ill. Not great, but the hostel was in prime location, but lost a lot more money as we chose not to spend any more money there out of principle. I'm sure we would have spent lots more on booze if we hadn't been mugged off at the start of the holiday.

This place is perfect for those seeking the nightlife of Amsterdam. It is right in the red-light district and its right above an irish pub. The manager is very friendly and will make sure you feel safe there. There is a seperate entry for the hostel for safety and the rooms are tiny, but they will serve their purpose of sleeping. Everything was very clean and had the essentials to get you through the few hours of sleep you wanted to squeeze in, during your time in Amsterdam. The stairs are a bit tricky after a night out but very doable.

Such a cool place, with it's own unique Irish pub feel, the rooms are small, as are all in Amsterdam, the staff were the most helpful, and the location is right in the red light district, walking distance from everything! Highly recommend!

Dirty nellys is lots of fun and the people are great. The guy who owns it helped us from beginning to end to store our bags, check in, go places, very nice staff. Room was a bit small but the price was good for Amsterdam. Location is amazing, your in the red light district. If you want to be in the action and have fun then this is the place to be. If your old and want quiet time then avoid.
