    Sometime it's worth it to spend the money”

    When I was coming to El NIdo, I had a hard time choosing between Spin and another place out of town that was almost half the price. In the end I went with Spin and I'm glad I did. I've never had any issues post diving but this time I did and my ears have been giving me issues for most of days since (free diving while on a island tour didn't help), Spin has been the perfect oasis since I haven't felt like doing much besides the island tour, which I forced myself to do. The breakfasts are pretty great. The WIFI which can be sketchy or barely functioning at other places has been strong and allowed me to call home (using google) and watch videos while trying to decide where to head to next. The only down side is the price but this is a case of you get what you pay for. I am afraid that Spin has spoiled me too much and I'm not sure I'm ready to rough it again. They also have nightly activities: an all you can eat BBQ (W + S p350), Margarita night, Pub crawl.

    I loved staying at this hostel. There are activities every night which you can participate in (Movie night, Beer pong night, Margarita night, BBQ Night, etc.). Facilities are clean and well-maintained. Shower gel and shampoo are provided. They also have free coffee. Breakfast is okay. The hostel is a 10 minute walk to where the boat tours start. Plenty of restaurants and bars around the same area. Staff were very nice and approachable. Would recommend this to family and friends.

    The best hostel in El Nido”

    Spin definitely gives you your money's worth. Their staff is very friendly and more than willing to help you book the activities you want to do, the rooms are clean and are being maintained throughout the day, they serve free buffet breakfast, host different activities every night and not to mention that they are located pretty close to the town proper as well as the beach. I would definitely stay here again when I go back to El Nido!

    Love love Spin! It was in El Nido downtown but is kind of separated from all the establishments which is a nice break from the noise. Love the PANCAKES. I do recommend u book your tours with them as you will be doing the tours with Spin's guests only which means less people! Everyone at Spin was so friendly. Will book again! Thank you for a lovely stay!!

    Perfect for a solo traveller”

    To summarise I planned to stay in El Nido for 4 nights and I ended up staying for 9!! Spin was amazing, I have never stayed in a hostel like this before. The facilities are first rate! Each bed, even the bunk beds, are queen size, not singles, every bed has 4 plug sockets, and the lockers in the room are big enough to fully unpack and still store your belongings; small details which I felt made a real difference. Outside of the bedrooms the communal spaces are some of the best I’ve ever seen. The lobby is more like a boutique hotel with the most impressive bamboo roof, and then the outside terrace is perfect for sunbathing and partying at night. In the communal spaces the hostel also organise at least one event per day which brings everyone together. While I was there there was BBQ night, Movie Night, Beer Pong Night, Bar Crawl Night, Games Night... the list goes on. Solo travelling can be a little intimidating, but spin removed all the anxiety! Thank you to the staff!!

    Pros Very modern Breakfast is the best I’ve had in a hostel: eggs, toast, loads of fruit, pancakes, coffee. Big dorm and comfy bed Staff helped me book a tour and get taxis etc Location is decent Good showers and changing rooms Cons Had a window above my bed which looked inside that meant it stayed fairly light the whole time. Location is a short walk to main part Didn’t seem as social as some hostels I’ve been to

    Where do I start!! Well with the staff I'd like to thank Don, jessa,Mae,Kevin,Anne and Jerome for making my stay so welcoming and fun. You never stop laughing and caring for your guests. The breakfast is great good selection. Themed evenings fun especially the beer pong night and good BBQ night which gets the hostel interacting. I had a private room which was fine, cleaned daily. So a big thumbs up to all the staff at Spin El Nido won't forget you. Will stay when I'm back In the Philippines next and will spread the word to friends who travel to El Nido.

    My stay at Spin was absolutely brilliant and I highly recommend it to anyone staying in El Nido - whether on a budget or not. Its location in town is perfect - slightly removed from the noise but still so convenient. The facilities are great, showers and toilets very clean and the overall vibe of the place is really cool and chilled out. The staff go the extra mile to help and it shows - throughout my stay they were so accommodating and friendly, and they create a real community atmosphere too. An absolute must and would 100% stay here again

    Great place with great facilities. The beds were super comfortable, the room was the most spacious room I've had in the Philippines. The only disadvantage was the lack of atmosphere - it's not a typical hostel in that matter, but more like a hotel. People don't really look for a company there and the whole atmosphere doesn't really encourage it.

    Loved the room design and the service! Short walk to Bacuit bay so food option is not an issue. Breakfast choices is also good for a hostel as they have the basics - toast, fruits, rice, omelettes, pancakes. The wifi is a bit spotty though but I think it shouldnt be an issue since you went there to relax and not to surf the internet anyway.

Staff is friendly and attentive to your needs. I just wish food is offered lunch and dinner time although there are nearby grocery stores you can go to for your basic needs.
