“Pay for the toilet”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

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.

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!
