    Funky and independently run, the Dictionary is a current favorite of ours. The only hostel in Shoreditch, it's also your only real budget option (outside of chains) in London's cool East End. Just because it's the only option doesn't mean it's not great, however. The owners have years of London hostel experience and have used this place to make all their wildest dreams come true (think art gallery/laundromat). Their bar, Translate, is open to the public, so it's also a great place to stay if you want to meet people outside the budget and backpacker crew.
