If you are backpacking Palawan, specifically ElNIdo, or just looking for a room for a getaway, please don’t overlook Spin Hostel in ElNido. The experience there has created a permanent smile on my face. The location is ideal, located right off the main highway and a 3 minute walk to literally everything ElNido has to offer. Now I have been traveling around the Philippines for several months now and I have to say the stay at Spin Hostel is one of the highlights of my journey. First, the staff is amazing. How does everyone from the General Manager, Sir Don to the front desk supervisor Melqui (Mel-Key) maintain a smile on their face 24/7? I don’t know. Maybe its something in the water there. You decide, but I’ll warn you it is contagious. The day starts with the included

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
