I did get quizzed at reception when the guy saw that I was quite a bit older than the 18-35 range they prefer. The Dictionary is very nice - bare wood floors, white walls and quite classy. The only negative was an Italian guy waking me and telling move beds because he had claimed the one I was in. I didn't want an argument at 2am because other people were sleeping, and I was told by the staff to take the bed when I viewed the room - it looked empty. Assigning beds might be a good idea.

This is a proper backpacker hostel. It has a nice atmosphere and is in a good location.
This hostel is among the nicest backpacker hostels in London - the garden is lovely.
Hostel is above a pub - alternative and pretty relaxed and they do a good breakfast with plenty of fruit. Easy to get to on 47 bus from Shoreditch/Liverpool St. Staff friendly and helpful.
