Stayed here with my boyfriend and we were about 18/19 at the time. Literally a 5 minute walk from the main train station so you don't have to lug your suitcases too far. The Dutch guy who checked us in was really nice and kindly overlooked the fact we (accidentally) arrived before check in time. The room and ensuite were clean, functional and well presented.
I WOULD however say that this is more a place for 18-28 year olds like us. We could sometimes hear people passing/messing about in the corridor, naturally quite late at night. But, it didn't really phase us and it didn't disturb our sleep. The bar/reception downstairs also has a dj playing till late.
We had been to Amsterdam before and in terms of night time we think Leidseplein is the best area. It's touristy but fun with loads of pubs and away from the red light district where things can sometimes feel a little seedy. But It was 15 minutes tram ride inland from Frisco so in future I think it's worth getting a hotel closer to that end so you can just stumble in at the end of the night. Frisco basically backs onto the red light district and while I have never ever felt threatened or unsafe, Leidseplein does have a nicer atmosphere and I would say it's worth trekking a bit further with your luggage.
Still, one of the best value hotels we found and if you're young and not too fussy then you will thoroughly enjoy your stay!
NB the stairs are insanely steep. But it isn't Amsterdam without doing a vertical climb to your room!
