A really cool hostel in a really cool suburb. If you're looking to get away from the touristy area of London, then this is great and still close enough to all of the sights. The staff are always really friendly and helpful too.

Fair for the price, clean and the staff are welcoming, though it's near a lot of bars and pubs, and there is poor wifi and poor shower in the bathroom. But overall clean and tidy. May recommend to others.

The hostel is located in a great area, there's a lot of nice bars and cafées on the same street, also lots of cool shops, vintage, street art and an urban vibe. The building it self is also nice with a cosy lounge hang out. The only minus is that you have to pay 1 pound/day to get wifi in... More

Highly unrecommented. You can find much better hostels in London. I recommend for example Equity Point. Stayed twice and had a very nice experience . The toilets at Dictionary were unavailable. No Internet

The standard is that you're in a hostel to sleep and shower. But when you end up in a place where neither of those things are possible, it's kind of a problem. It's extremely loud from sun up to sundown with squeaky doors everywhere. Then, the bathroom was so disgusting with trash piled up in the corners of the rooms... More

It was my first time at a hostel, so I'm kinda spoiled by hotels etc.:) But the price and the location were great that's why I chose to give it a try. The hostel stuff and also my roommates were super friendly and nice, the hostel is located central in one of my favourite areas in London. I didn't spend... More

I have done quiet a lot of hostels around London, however, this hostel was by far the best hostel that i've stayed. Indeed, not only the hostel is greatly located, clean and safe but the staff members were very welcoming and help you with everything else that you need. In fact, not only they will make you feel comfortable, some... More

Wonderful place. Great location in Shoreditch. And the staff was very helpful. Plus, they gave me adresses of their favorite places. Nice bars, cafés... I was not disappointed. They have this lounge. Great to meet people if you're travelling solo.

This is the second hostel I've stayed at, and it was a very good experience. Shoreditch is a very cool area to explore and the hotel was very accommodating. The staffers were very helpful. If you're looking for a protein-filled, non-carby breakfast, you might have to look somewhere else though!
