    Weird time to be in Amsterdam w/ things closed at 5pm but I still had a great time. The staff helped me figure out what to do with my travel plans when covid screwed them up. Since the town was relatively empty and closed for half the day, I spent time in the hostel and think it would be a really fun and inviting place in normal circumstances. The cubby beds are nice and dark and cozy. Special shout out to Josh and Nathan for being the best. I'll see you again after covid!

    My praises to Daniel and Valley with an "O". This place is amazing. The staff went WAY ABOVE AND BEYOND to help me when I came to Amsterdam. There is not enough room here to tell the whole story. I will say that this staff and this place will be the ONLY thing I miss about Amsterdam. Well, and then there's Lars.

    I had a very pleasant experience at my stay. The hostel looks very cool and modern, is very clean, and the best part is it’s location. The staff are very kind and helpful. I enjoyed sleeping in a capsule bed. While it was a bit difficult to get up to the upper bunks (I’m not a very fit person) I really appreciated the sound isolation in comparison to normal bunk beds, and was able to sleep despite snoring or any other sounds that are inevitable in a hostel. Overall I’d definitely recommend!

    Excellent hostel, great location, friendly staff. Had a good sleep and the pods were comfortable! Clean new bathroom and shower with shampoo so great! 20% off drinks in the bar and very handy lockers for storage. Shane.

    Great place to stay in Central Amsterdam, within easy walking distance of the main railway station. Durty Nelly's is in the middle of (or at least next to) the Red Light district but most other central Amsterdam attractions can also be reached easily. I stayed in one of the 'capsule sleeping pod' arranged dormitories, which offers a bit more privacy than your standard kind of dormitory and is a pretty good cost/benefit compromise for those not willing to shell out for a private room.

    Not a solo traveler place since the facilities are limited (no common room or kitchen, few toilets) and it’s sitting in a busy area of amsterdam over a bar so it was loud. It was clean and close to the railway station so it was just what I was looking for

    This hostel was unique in offering a solo pod sleeping area! I am a solo backpacker and the Durty Nellys hostel was a good stay. PROS All my belongings felt super secure Giant showers that were very clean The solo pods were quiet and had enough space to sleep in Right in the heart of downtown/red light district (walking/transit anywhere in only a few minutes) CONS The pod rooms had ZERO space to change clothes or open your lockers The bar was really the only social area to interact with others

    PROS - affordable - right in city centre next to RLD - staff are very friendly and pleasant - you get a free shot after check in CONS - the room doors shut way too loudly, which definitely affects sleep - hostel is on a main tourist road so it can get loud at night on weekends... my sleep was definitely affected - one occasion I found that the toilet paper and shower gel were finished but not replaced, and supposesly the bathrooms are cleaned every day - the pod beds were a bit dirty and dusty
