Female dorm was right above a noisy bar with loud music and windows could not close. Shower was way to small and not so much water coming out. Would be nice if they replace the shower and put windows in that can close. But the staff was really friendly, the breakfast was good and included and it is a fun place to stay. It really depends what your purpose of the travel is, it's not a good place to rest but it is a good place to meet people and go out.

There’s no sleeping in this dirty hostel. Breakfast is basic. The only positive is they guard your bags and there’s someone at reception. First miserable stay at a hostel, to be fair I was in the larger rooms with bunk beds.. still dirty, cold and damp.

A great hostel with super friendly staff and facilities. Located in the heart of Shoreditch, which is perfect for the backpackers, or anyone who would like to experience the life of London. The Liverpool street station is located 15 min walk away, which is great for the train journeys, as well as the easy connection with the airports. Overall, a great place to stay!

The Dictionary Hostel was really nice. The staff was wonderful and super nice right off the bat, answering any questions I had and seemingly very happy to do so. The room felt a little cramped however it did fit 10 beds and each bed had its own locked cage to put valuables which was wonderful. The included breakfast was fine as expected. Shoreditch is a cool area with lots of live music and a young vibe so the location is great, especially since the hostel is right next to the overground.

Large storage lockers beneath the bed were great. The only downside is the loud constant noise throughout the night (there are several bars outside the hostel). Even deep sleepers may want to bring ear plugs just in case. The free breakfast was simple (toast, cereal, hard boiled eggs and juices) but satisfying. The hostels location was great for the tube, bars/clubs, cafes, and close to brick lane. Stayed here twice and really enjoyed it!

great location in a fun, not as touristy part of london. Friendly staff and people! The 8-female room I was in was right above a few bars, and was so noisy all night that it was pretty impossible to sleep at all, which was a bit unpleasant.
