“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

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.

THird time i've stayed at Durty Nelly's and it did not disappoint. Everything in amsterdam is small and given the city's structure space is a t a premium. Nelly's use this well manageing to have several rooms with good facilities in the heart of the Red light district. Perfect location if you are in town only for a few days and just want to do everything. Also very close to the main train station which makes it very convenient for travel. Hostel itself is a lot of fun, met some great people and thoroughly enjoyed the pub downstairs. Will be back in a heartbeat for another fun weekend!

A group of us (aged 25-36) stayed here 9-11th August 2013. I was in a private room for four people as were the others in the group. The room consisted of two bunk beds, ensuite with shower and toilet. It was clean and tidy.
Beers and food are hugely subsidised for guests and good quality. Overall the highlight was the exceptionally friendly staff. Dave and the other shorter chap whose name I have unfortunately forgot were exceptionally good fun, gave advice on where to go and how to stay safe in the city and when one of the group was a little worse for wear on the Friday night was exceptionally good about his antics!
I've not stayed in a hostel before and had a somewhat snobby attitude towards hostels previously but this completely changed my mind. We had a brilliant time and even did the durty nellies pub crawl on the Saturday (€15) which was awesome!
Nellies is smack bang in the middle of the tourist action so offers everything a birthday/stag/holiday/traveller could ask for.
Great value and I would recommend to anyone.
