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!

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.
