Great backpackers hostel with a good continental breakfast, excellent staff, cool location and nice facilities. They could improve air fluctuation in the rooms, since all rooms above second floor tend to become quite hot during the day. The situation normally doesn't improve during the nights. The staff is doing everything they can (bringing ventilators in the room), but it doesn't help much. Common room is more a TV room, people just staring at TV all night, so the hostel could use a bar.
Even though this hostel is cheap and I can agree it offers kind of good value for money, the experience there was still under my expectations. Tripple bulk beds? 6-bed room was so small it literally had place only for beds and lockers. The whole hotel is dusty and dirty, including fridge which probably still contains food from the year this hostel was founded. The vibe is awful, the toilets are bad, the 1.5 pounds breakfast looks uneatable and is served in the reception desk.
Had great few days at The dictionary hostel. Location is great for pub crawling and as well for exploring the city (10 minutes walk to the tube). Staff is great, breakfast is excelent, rooms are clean and the bar below hosts great nights on weekends. Wifi only works in the bar and reception, except if you stay in first floor.
