Can someone tell me what’s wrong with this code?

Your code so far

// Setup
var contacts = [
    "firstName": "Akira",
    "lastName": "Laine",
    "number": "0543236543",
    "likes": ["Pizza", "Coding", "Brownie Points"]
    "firstName": "Harry",
    "lastName": "Potter",
    "number": "0994372684",
    "likes": ["Hogwarts", "Magic", "Hagrid"]
    "firstName": "Sherlock",
    "lastName": "Holmes",
    "number": "0487345643",
    "likes": ["Intriguing Cases", "Violin"]
    "firstName": "Kristian",
    "lastName": "Vos",
    "number": "unknown",
    "likes": ["JavaScript", "Gaming", "Foxes"]

function lookUpProfile(name, prop){
// Only change code below this line
for (var i=0;i<contacts.length;i++){
if (contacts[i]["firstName"] === name && contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)){
    return contacts[i][prop];
else if (contacts[i]["firstName"] === name && !contacts[i].hasOwnProperty(prop)){
    return "No such property";
else {
    return "No such contact";
// Only change code above this line

lookUpProfile("Akira", "likes");

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Why is this inside of the for loop? The very first time your code encounters a return, your code stops and no other contacts are checked.
