    This place is in a great location with friendly staff, and made a comfy little base. Could only sleep between 1.30 am - 8am though as bar music from downstairs comes on at breakfast and doesn't stop till after 1am. Also, bathrooms are located inside dorms which means hearing people go to the bathroom (every sound amplified) all the time. It took me 30 minutes in the shower to wash shampoo & conditioner through my hair as there was no water pressure - it really was basically dripping.

    We had a great time at Durty Nellie’s and the staff were all really helpful. It can be quite noisy due to it’s location on a party street, but earplugs are available. One thing that might improve our stay was the shower - the floor beyond the shower area was always soaked afterwards, and the shower head could do with replacing so that jets cone from all holes. But all in all it was great and for being so walkable to everywhere and the station I would recommend!

    Staff is friendly and helpful, the beds are quite small and you can't even sit on your bed without hitting your head with the one above, good thing is that the washrooms are inside the room for the 12 bed dorm. Steep stairs are something to be aware of...the location is right on red district so you're close to all the tourist stuff also very close to the amsterdam central.

    Very Good

    Overall the place was great! You have your own bathroom inside the 4 bunk bedrooms. It just that the shower is not properly working. The water spread out around the toilet making it all flooded. The reception lady from UK was amazing and the Spanish girl as well. The one lad at night shift ask for accommodation card and presented but he asked me to go up (I was at the second floor) just to get my passport and questioned my name 🙄
