Not all Lodging Houses were mentioned. I don't know what the criteria was to get your name in. None of the lodging houses in Dorset Street are in there, but I found some mentioned in Poplar.
There was a Castle Street that ran off Houndsditch. It was renamed Goring Street between 1888 and 1894. Its still there today, at least the layout is as I think it is mostly modern offices like the rest of Houndsditch.
Here it is on the 1873 large scale O.S. Map. about middle left.
Cuttler Street is still there by that name.

Both Robert D'Onston Stephenson and his Brother Richard Stephenson Junior had been residing in Islington for many years prior to the Whitechapel murders.
RDS lived in Islington from 1870's whilst Richard moved there a little later after being involved in numerous scandals in Hull (typical councillor!)
It is possible they knew of the area but the two were quite far away!
29 Castle Street, St. Martin in the Fields was indeed a common lodging house. But, I’m afraid it is long gone.
Judging from the portion of the 1914 OS, posted by Rob, it would appear that it had made way for a larger structure prior to the completion of that particular survey.

The numbering scheme for Castle Street was as follows:
Castle Street, St. Giles in the Fields
Castle Street, St. Martin in the Fields
There were fewer numbered buildings on the south side of the thoroughfare, due to the inclusion of a school, coach manufactory and brewery.
The 1891 Census lists a total of 61 residents, in a dwelling that was perhaps no larger than 29 Hanbury Street. Those folks in the West End had it so easy !!!
