Lovely stay at the hostel. Truly great location with some hipster vibes. 24/7 you're able to find interesting faces in the common rooms. Staff were kind and helpful. Didn't sleep a lot though, but that's probably due tight schedules in this capital. Quite noisy during weekend nights. Exciting place nonetheless.

Really nice and convenient location. Karine was very friendly helpful throughout my stay! Sometimes the room was a bit noisy at night as it was located just above the bar, but it wasn't a big issue and there are ear plugs available from the reception should you require them. I didn't use them. Lovely hostel and a fair price, would... More

Brilliant budget hostel, for £15 a night I had comfortable bedding, leisure facilities, lots of people to socialize with, a free breakfast, and overall a pleasant building to stay in. Located right on Shoreditch High Street the Dictionary Hostel is close to everything I needed, vinyl stores, vintage markets, pubs and clubs, and is also close to the underground. I... More

The check-in girl seemed a bit annoyed of the whole situation when I came in: the door bell rang, people were coming and she looked tired. But I just wanted to get my key card and not a chat, so it was OK. The room was very clean and tidy. However, I booked the 4-bed "en-suite" room, found the toilet... More

I had a really nice stay in this Hostel. As I booked a private double room, this place has all the standards and features of a "proper" hotel, with this proximity of really lovely people that you can have in good hostels and all of that for a cheaper price. Also the reception people were really available any time and... More

Check-In quality was poor, the present red hair lady could not have been more arrogant. After entering the room P which had no beds left went back to the reception and the red hair... More
