Comfy Bed, Ultra Friendly Staff & Free Breakfast!
I found the mattress hard enough & suited my spine well. Comfy as I was dead tired after a day's walk in London. Our 6 beds dorm which is facing the main street could be a little rowdy & noisy in the middle of the night though..but if you close the window tight, it should filter out the bar people sound. During our stay, there was 1 night when the water pump couldn't get up to the 3rd floor, so had to go the 2nd floor to shower & with intermittent water pressure managed to have hot shower. The problem was resolved soon enough. It was a rare issue. Showers & toilets are small and a little dirty. Perhaps could be a bit cleaner.. Ultra friendly staff and the simple free breakkie was a winner! Tips: Not to be missed if you like markets & within walking distance are Columbia Rd Flower Market (go anyday), Spitalfields Market (Closed on Sat & Mon; Busiest–Sun), Brick Lane Market (Sun only), Petticoat Lane Market (Mon to Fri) & Leadenhall Market (Mon to Fri 11am-4pm; Best before lunchtime).

Much improved compared to my last stay
Friendly staff, great central location especially for nightlife, very clean
I stayed at the Dictionary hostel a couple of years ago - wow what an improvement compared to then. The hostel was really clean, the reception is way bigger, the food at the bar was great and the room was really nice and quiet even though it looked onto the main street in Shoreditch. The staff are so friendly and did everything they could to help me during my stay - thanks guys! They have this cool app that I downloaded and I found loads of stuff to do in the local area. So much great street art in this neighbourhood! The breakfast was quite basic but it had everything you needed - I chose to go to the bar where they do a full English with a 20% discount for guests. The room was clean and tidy and I had it to myself. It looked like they have just had new windows installed or something. I remember it was a bit noisy last time but this time it was really quiet. Enjoyed my stay - will come back.

Smart Casual
Comfortable bed, nice style and lovely details (flowers).
It was a great stay. Helpfull employees, clean, friendly, value for money. Missed an area to hang out as the kitchen was more for eating and the coffee shop was not open at nights. As the double room is small, it would have been nice to have some other relaxed hang out area. The coffee shop hade lovely tea, but the croissant was dry. Very friendly people.

Good location, not really clean, good price
price, location, staff
this hostel offers good price, great location, friendly staff, but not really that clean. I bought fried chicken outside and bring it to the hotel room, I left it during the night and in the morning there's a hole in the fried chicken package, looks like rats had it in the night. I'd still recommend this hostel though.

Overpriced in great neighborhood
The proximity to public transport, shopping & dining, plus the vibrant neighborhood it is in.
We expected a lot better. Checking in took us 2,5 hours in total: had been given the wrong room (in the end solved ok). The shower in the private bathroom didn't give any water - even outside 'rush hours'. Room was just big enough for 2pc of luggage. Staff could have informed better of availability of a safe. Location was really great with lots of places to eat, drink and shop. The area is terrific!
