    CANNOT TOP THE LOCATION. Although the rooms are a little tight it does not matter because you wont be in the room all day due to everything there is to do in Amsterdam. I loved staying here the environment was AMAZING. Staying at this hostel gives you discounts on food and drink. Ask about the pub crawl and do it! It was so much fun and we met some really cool backpackers. Make sure you also ask the desk about bike rentals!

    Had a great time at Durty Nelly’s! The staff was awesome and the atmosphere was great. The fact that you have easy access to the pub downstairs at any time is a huge plus. Cool bartenders too

    Stayed in a 4-bed room. All good in almost all aspects except that as an asian girl, the mirror in the room by the sink was WAY TOO HIGH and I couldnt reach to see mahself (it's funny, but ya know). Apart from that, really enjoyed my stay - location was perfect, staff were great and I highly recommend you stay here!

    Great location-right in the middle of Amsterdam Central. Rooms were spacious, beds were fairly comfortable, and the staff were very friendly. Main downside was the lack of a kitchen or fridge. Also, the stairs are quite steep and narrow, so be mindful if you have large bags. That being said, lots of bar discounts, and the location can't be beat.

    Great hostel with lovely staff and in an awesome location. Only complaint is that there was only one toilet/shower per 10 people in the rooms - meaning you often had to wait a long time.

    Had an amazing time at the hostel. My only disappointment was that it didn't have a kitchen to cook a meal in. But the bar is pretty cool and the staff was very helpful. I just hope I can come back some day!

    There was only one bathroom in the 10 bedroom dorm. So the bathroom was always busy. There is no A/C which made it incredibly difficult to sleep. The room was unbearably hot. Would not recommend.
