Angelo was so helpful and went above and beyond for our one night stay! Will definitely recommend this hostel to anyone travelling solo or otherwise. Love that towels were provided and that there was an egg station at breakfast!

Best staff ever encountered with good rooms and breakfast. Angelo was there for everything I needed and always a charm. The AC should not be left to be controlled by guests in my opinion. Also a bit noisy in the 3 different rooms I stayed. Pity about the lost jacket. Will repeat

Just finished 3 nights in this hostel, it was so great. Lovely rooms, clean bathroom and shower area and a super breakfast too. Angelo, who works behind the desk, is so helpful and smiley, he planned out my days for me and I had a great few days... well worth it!

Angelo was extremely helpful in finding me a room late at night even though they were fully booked. The room was very spacious and stylish and the free breakfast is delicious. The service from Angelo and the rest of the staff was wonderful, friendly, pleasant and professional. I highly recommend Spin Hostel to anyone and will be staying here next time I visit El Nido.

We spent 4 days (24-28 November 2022) at Spin Hostel and it was an amazing experience. I will re-book Spin in a heartbeat. Accommodation 4.5 Complimentary breakfast 5.0 Customer service 5.0 Fun and pleasant vibe 5.0 Both the private rooms and shared rooms are clean with comfortable beds, lots of lights and mirrors, and hot and cold showers. The rooms are cleaned and the trash bins are emptied daily. I wasn't a fan of the ladder going up the top bunk, however. I had a hard time navigating up and down it. The staff is super friendly and well-informed. They seem to know what you need before you even ask. They also offered to cook something that was not on the menu because it was necessary for our comfort. They made arrangements for our airport transfer and ensured we won't

Safest and most comfortable I have ever felt in a hostel. The free breakfast every morning was great, rooms were clean with large beds and comfortable blankets, and the location was perfect. The staff were incredible, making sure you never felt alone by facilitating socials and introductions within the hostel! They consistently went above and beyond to ensure that you had the best trip possible, especially Angelo. He was extremely helpful and even went out of his way to deliver some lost belongings to me! I will never forget Angelo's kindness and the amazing attitude of all the staff. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

Five of us stayed in Spin for 8 nights and had a brilliant experience. Angelo, Shiena and Ann made our stay so welcoming and easy. We originally meant to stay for 4 nights but we didn’t book our ferry in time so had to extend by 4 nights, there was no issue with this at all. The staff remember everyone by name and go above and beyond to make you feel at home. The location is so central for all the restaurants and bars and you can organise all your tours with the hostel. 100% recommend.

Spin is a wonderful hostel, big comfy beds, clean bathrooms, great breakfast options, free water refills and some really nice evening activities (movie night, bbq night). But the staff are what make this Hostel MAGIC, Anne is a blessing and couldn’t have been more helpful. It’s in a perfect location and we ended up staying 7 nights! Don’t hesitate, just book.

We stayed during the onslaught of typhoon Paeng so we were in the accommodation for most of our El Nido trip. They have a generator, which is good since power has been out in most of the town. The Internet is also good enough for me to do some work. They also have events like karaoke and barbecue nights so you could mingle with fellow tourists staying at the hostel. Their common area is spacious enough for everyone and they have games and books that you can use to kill the time. The breakfast buffet was also good since they have a great selection of choices. The common bathroom was also well-kept. The beds and towels provided were also at par with those of the hotels'. But the best part of the experience was their staff and the environment. Everyone in the hostel's crew was
