Hostelworld says

It?s no exaggeration to say this is one of the best known hostels in the world. Most will know of its legend simply by word of mouth. It?s located right in the centre of the city smack bang in the middle of all the action, with the red light district and Dam Square mere steps away. The place is lively without being unbearable. It doesn?t accept stag or hen do?s, sports groups or massive marauding all-male parties, so you can expect the hostel bar and overall atmosphere of the place to be fun and lively, but not too boisterous.

Overall, I would say I was deceived by the reviews. The staff desk do not provide towels upon check in even though they are available free of charge. There is always constant noise from being in the Red Light district, which is why this must be so popular. Additionally, I stayed in an 8 person female room and was a bit confused by the lay out. The shower is to one side while the bathroom to the other and there’s a wall separating the 4 beds on each side.
