Having read previous reviews about this hostel being a 'posh-tel', like a hotel, and a designer hostel - I think these are exaggerations. For me our stay here was standard and on par with any other hostel stay, yes the architecture of this hostel is a bit more interesting but ultimately the experience wasn't extraordinary. PROS -Good WIFI, although it did log you out if you didn't use it for five minutes -Breakfast: Very good breakfast included in the price - juice, eggs, bread and spreads, rice, fruit, tea and coffee -Location: 12 min walk from the ferry port, 7ish minute walk from the main town and restuarants. Can also walk to Corong Corong beach in twenty minutes. Las Cabanas and the bus terminal can be reached easily in a tricycle which wait outside the hostel -Room: We…
I stayed in Spin Hostel with my husband, we booked a private room and it was nothing but disappointing. We could deal with the fact it was tiny and felt like we're in a box, but it was soooo dirty it was a shame to let people stay there. Dust, spider webs and smelly sheets and towels. The stuff were no close to being nice, the Wi-Fi in the rooms is limited to a certain number of users so it disconnect every few minutes. The one and only nice thing about the hostel is the communal areas.
this place is simply amazing, the term hostel puts you into a false sense of security. this is way more than a hostel. the location is perfect. a few metres walk to the main strip and the beach for the boat tours. great location also for a tricycle into the sunset beach. prices are great, rooms are cosy, super comfy beds, air con, great staff, amazing staff, wonderful staff, great bar and restaurant area with great priced drinks and food. this place is simply amazing, we loved it here
Overall we had a great stay for just under a week with clean rooms, good breakfast and lovely staff that made the stay diverse and fun. The twin bed in the private room was a little bit to cramped for 2 Western travelers and it would of been nice to have a queen. Hostel is located in a green and quiet area of El Nido with 24hr security staff on all entrances.
What a place we stayed here 5 nights central location, excellent service, excellent breakfast with selection, close to everything, there is a free washing machine for hotel guests Cons - water in the shower is not hot enough, the wifi in the room is sometimes strong and sometimes weak.
