I had the fortune of staying at the Spin Designer Hostel in El Nido and I have to say it was a fantastic experience. The place is charming, clean, and well-appointed, but what really makes it special is the staff. In particular, I want to mention Angelo who was extremely helpful and friendly to me during my stay. He was always available to assist me with anything I needed and gave me great advices on how to explore the area. His kindness and smile made me feel welcome and at home. I really recommend this place and I hope to return in the future!

I just can say: wow wow wow and again wow. This hostel is literally the best hostel in el nido city. You can trust me I tried a lot of them… the price for the rooms is more cheaper than other hostel and the breakfast is much better there and included. But that’s not the main reason why this is the best one. It’s because of the people especially Anton (the young guy with the glasses on the service) who really understand what a good service is meaning. He really gave his life for making people confident and happy. He booked everything for me and was 24h available. He even borrow me his phone because my was lost. Thank you so much, you are a really good guy. Much love from Germany and greetings Severin

I really liked the hostel. The staffs are very accomodating and friendly especially Angelo and the Housekeeping dept. The bathroom is decent, the beds are big, they also provided the towels, blankets, and the extra pillows when we asked for it. It’s a great place to stay, location-wise, if you want a hostel around the town but not too crowded, this is the place for you.

Great Architecture and Great Service Starting from check in to check out Angello was helping out of the way. Room was adequate for me, bathroom was nice, facilities and lights are more than necessary. Breakfast sitting area was nice and green, Staff at restaurant was good. I had best omelet in Phillipines. Angello was always helping in everything.

Location - it's in the town but minutes away from the busy streets which I really like cos the ambiance is cozy, quiet, and relaxing. The common area is quite spacey too. You can read books in the couch, do some work remotely, just about anything :) Food - buffet breakfast is included. I rarely eat in the premise so I can't comment on this one but I don't remember having a bad tasting food too. ;) Staff - THE BEST! Shout out to Angelo and the other one whom I forgot the name (i'm sorry) in the reception. Claire and RJ in the bar, and every staffs at Spin! They really look out for you and will engage you to the activities, you'll never feel lonely even when you're traveling SOLO. Room/Bed - Pretty big bunk beds in dorm rooms with storage lockers for each. Only thing that I didn't like is that there is no curtain for each so, there's not much privacy in there. Comfort Rooms - All dorm rooms shared a common comfort area which, if I remember correctly, consists of 8 toilets and 6 showers. AND apart from that, they have 3 separate bathrooms just for GIRLS ONLY(which is one of the many things I like in this hostel). The Bad? I honestly, couldn't think of any. Just the curtains. I only stayed with them for 3 days but I would love to have my whole stay there during the trip only if they aren't always FULLY BOOKED. I'll sure be back and recommend this place!

One of the best hostels I ever stayed. Cordial staff and awesome ambience. Entire hostel emits positive vibes and energy. Staff are very cordial and helpful. Needless to mention young, dynamic and energetic Angelo who was everywhere in the need of hour. I stayed four nights. Highly recommendeble for worthy accommodation

The place is recommended for all types of travelers. Solo, couples, groups, their rooms can accommodate them. What I love about the place was that the staff is very friendly. I can comfortably work in the lobby with their comfortable sofas and chairs. You may opt to play games as well. The room I stayed in is clean and quiet. The comfort rooms are amazing. With Bidets of course. Shout out to the receptionist, Angelo, who is very accommodating and amazing. He shared with me how El Nido preserves their natural resources by their (El Nido) waste management. I was able to gain understanding why El Nido is different from others. Thank you Spin Hostel. I had a great time in El Nido, gained friends and knowledge. More power and success!
