Went to Amsterdam over Easter. Everything budget for a single traveller was already fully booked except this place. I did not like it because it is not my style.
The hostel is great for people who go out during the day, party all night and then come back in the wee hours of the morning to sleep there. The rooms are dark, overcrowded and badly aired. The only redeeming thing about this place is the pub downstairs and the fact that the hostel is large enough to accomodate groups. As such it is frequently used by Brits out for a stag night.
I wanted a quiet, well-lit and smoke-free place to sit in the evening for reading a book after my museum overload during the day. In most hostels this is easy to find. Here I had to use the loo and sit on the toilet with my book. There was simply no other space as all was taken up with beds and lockers and sanitary facilities.
Unique Quality: The Irish pub downstairs.
Directions: Red Light District, just a five minute walk off the train station
Durty Nelly's name is accurate, the place is FILTHY!!! The staff who ran the place were VERY nice and friendly, but the accomodations were nightmarish. The rooms are just dirty and gross. You have a little privacy, which is nice, but no shield from noises. One night while there, a group of about 5 young men came into the room and proceeded to have a full-on conversation that lasted for 10 minutes at FULL VOLUME. The toilet was SMALL and REALLY dirty. I only used it when I absolutely had to. Everything is communal, so sometimesI had to use the bathroom after a man with bad aim did. I found using the toilets downstairs in the bar was much nicer. The showers were another story, I think if one were to lick the floor, they'd have hallucinations that couldn't be acheived with any drug! One word: GROSS
I don't recommend it, because it's so gross, but one thing it does have going for it is LOCATION. It's right on the outskirts of the red light district, so a two minute walk is all you need to be immersed in as many XXX shops, shows, and prostitutes as you'd like! You also have to deal with more dodgy people than usual. So, if location is all you care about, go Durty Nelly's, if you want to stay lice-free, go somewhere else.
Unique Quality: There is a sweet little cat who roams around the hostel, how he has survived being around so many high/drunk people is beyond me. However, he is very sweet and will gladly come and curl up in your bed with you. You'll find him sleeping on beds and licking water from the toilet.
