Regardless the hygiene and the poor service, which is quite normal for a hostel, this place is the best if you want to see some strangers going into your dorm and some of your belongings stolen.
I went there with my friends a night before King's Day. We were in a dorm, with other people, which was okay. But we didn't have any key and were given a bracelet that the receptionists were supposed to check before letting you in the hostel: NEVER HAPPENED!!!!
So during our second night, a psychopath came into our dorm when we were sleeping, stole my friend's phone, my other friend's leather jacket, started touching a girl and tried to pull down an other girl's pants...
The worst is that the doors are closed that late at night.. so one of the employees might have opened the doors of the hostel and let him in without checking if he had a bracelet... Lovely staff :)
So, my advice: don't go there!
