Hostelworld says:

The Dictionary, Shoreditch is located in one of London's trendiest neighbourhoods and is just 10 minutes' walk from Old Street tube station in Zone 1. Newly opened in the summer of 2012, this hostel features very clean, spacious rooms, stylishly remodelled in an industrial building. Hostelworld guests have had high praise for the 'friendly staff who got to know you/recommended stuff to do'. We like their free breakfast of coffee and a croissant.

Property Information:

Welcome to Shoreditch! We are all about East London. Our hostel is located in the capital’s coolest district, where cool East meets old school Central London. This area is famous for its alternative culture and hipster style.

The hostel is located just meters away from the bustling Shoreditch High Street – home of London’s coolest bars, clubs, restaurants, galleries and independent shops. We even have our own bustling on-site bar.

Brick Lane, Spitalfields Market, Columbia Road and The Old Truman Brewery are all within walking distance of the hostel. We are even near a couple of Banksy pieces! What’s more, we’re only bus trips away from the Tower of London, Oxford Street and Covent Garden.

The hostel is housed in a converted, Victorian-era warehouse and has a wonderful industrial feel. Perfect if you’re looking for something with quirky style and an independent vibe.

We don’t like to brag, but we do have it all: awesome staff, free wi-fi, 24 hour reception, free basic breakfast, roof terrace, self catering kitchen, laundrette, bustling on-site bar, table football, and a coffee shop. We provide free luggage storage for you on the day of your arrival and check-out. There’s even a 20% guest discount in the bar & cafe too!

What more could you want? Book now! We can’t wait to meet you.

    Everything about my stay was pleasurable. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, including the friendly and helpful staff, tight security and free earplugs! Would definitely stay again.
