We stayed here during a bike tour of the Netherlands; I booked a 2 bed private room for €65/night, which is a bit on the high side for a hostel, but on the whole not too bad. It's a hostel, so the decor is a bit institutional, but it was clean, comfortable, and the room was a decent size, with a big window facing the front of the building, so the room stayed quite airy.
The breakfast was basic (bread, deli meats, cheese, fruit, cereal) but plentiful and included in the price, which made it decent value (cyclists eat A LOT!). The coffee was decent, and they had some Dutch specialities (ontbijkoek, hagelslag). It would have been nice if there were toasters in the breakfast room or some hot dishes like scrambled eggs.
The hostel is a short walk from Den Burg, and convenient for the ferry and the Texel Brewery. Staff were friendly and helpful. We didn't have any problems with noisy guests, most of the other guests seemed to be young families. The wifi was a bit unreliable during our stay, which was a bit annoying - there are 2 computers in the lounge, but they're pretty knackered. There's a covered bike shed where you can lock your bike which was important to us, but the door is often open even though it's supposed to be keycard entry. There's also a small bar on site that had the local beer on tap, which was lovely!
On the whole, I'd be happy to stay here again - it's not a 4* hotel, but it's clean, it had everything you need, and it's not expensive. What more do you need?
