As with any city centre hostel I would imagine it could be hit or miss, depending on what you expect, about 5 years ago this was the best kept secret in Amsterdam, its clean, its always been friendly, and it was cheap.
But unfortunately as with all accommodation in Amsterdam this can be a little expensive especially for a hostel, the location is right in the city's red-light district and you do pay for location ! the whole area is always very busy.
Reception staff are great never had a problem, in general very helpful as are all the staff, Bar area is small but copes very well most of the time, booked into a dorm with my partner for a cheap couple of nights a few years ago, but unfortunately it was terrible, ( must be to old I think !) the room was ok but I think our expectations was too much, so we upgraded to a private room, which are big enough to do what you need, we have stayed on many occasions over the last 5 years and had a fantastic time every time we go back.
