A pilot, base jumper, entrepreneur, writer, photographer, travel blogger… it’s a long list which needs whittling down!



What is the best thing about life at The Dictionary Hostel?

The people! Travellers tend to share some good things in common!



Must do while staying in East London?

Fooooood! Salt beef bagels, good Vietnamese food, clutch chicken, street feast at Dalston yard… the list goes on.



Favourite way to spend a tenner?

Two of the aforementioned salt beef bagels and a Shoreditch coffee.



What song goes on repeat in you Ipod?

Wildfire by SBTRKT!

Oh nooooo, you just found out you have 1 more year to live 🙁 What’s the top 3 things on your bucketlist?

Get into base jumping, learn to surf and cycle across the USA.



Favourite word in the dictionary and why?

Go! It’s simple and it’s positive, just go!



Thanks, Finn! If you want to personally meet and hang out with some of our staff, then pop down to Translate Bar on Thursdays at 17:30 PM and have a few drinks with them! Their wealth of knowledge about the area is super impressive and they are some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. Come and make some friends for life!
