“Not bad for Amsterdam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

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.

Didn't stay at Durty Nellys but had a bacon sandwich and some drinks with friends, service was fast and friendly, prices not too high compared with neighboring pubs. Customers must pay to use the bathroom.

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!!
