Dalstons daily market, restaurants, nightlife, and cinema make it a must-see village, and the Pho Mile along Kingsland Road has a fab variety of Vietnamese restaurants. Brick Lane, Broadway Market and Columbia Road flower market are all close by as well. Hoxton and its artistic scene most notably the White Cube Gallery in Hoxton Square is only two stops away on the overground line.

My son and I stayed here for 6 days over the course of our trip. It was all clean and comfortable, bathroom was great, accommodation was exactly as you see in the pictures. What the pictures don't show is what lovely hosts Mac and Maria are. They really made us feel very welcome, provided suggestions on transport around London, and genuinely did everything they could to help us have a great stay. On the occasion of our return visit before flying home, it felt a little bit like returning to a safe haven after all our travels. Highly recommended. The Dalston location suited us as we had family nearby, and was very straightforward for travel via the overground and bus.
