We are so very proud, after almost a year of working non-stop and tirelessly, to bring you our very own first, independent hostel in a great location in Shoreditch, London. The Dictionary, Shoreditch.
Having worked for a large chain of hostels for almost a decade, owners Peter and Eliska Finlay have finally managed to find the perfect building in a vibrant, young and creative part of London. Shoreditch in East London, is set on the edge of the city and sits where East London meets Central London. Where the hostel is now there used to be an old veneer warehouse and has a wonderful industrial feel, although we have completely rewired and replumbed everything.
Translate is our cafe bar downstairs, cafe by day and bar by night with a chilled out vibe and we are all so enthusiastic and friendly and very eager to open our place up to you.
