Location wise, the hostel is perfect. A short 5 minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal Station and just down the road from Dam Square and the red light district. There are various bars, cafe's and coffee shops all within a stones throw from the hostel. Surprisingly, although this is smack bang in the middle of everything, I found each night's sleep to be very quiet with little to no outside noise (I was on level 5 though).
I stayed in a 5 bed dorm with bathroom. The bathroom was older but still quite nice, though the walls weren't too thick so you heard all kinds of monstrosities taking place in there! The beds are comfortable enough, though my top bunk's charging port was situated towards the lower bunk which made charging challenging and no beds had individual lights or room to put your belongings on. The unique thing about each room is the paintings and design on the walls. I had some strange looking creature staring at me everywhere I looked which was interesting. The room did however have a balcony which was nice, although due to the cold it wasn't used much.
There are lockers on the side of the room with individual trunks below the beds. Although this is a great idea, it doesn't suit large suitcases. There is also a bar downstairs, however I didn't really utilize this. Staff were friendly and the check in/out process was good.
Overall, a good hostel that could do with some minor improvements. Would go back.
