I was lucky to have an opportunity to stay in SPIN last week. Before the pandemic, they were so popular that it would have been tough to make a booking.

(1) Location – In town so it’s just a walk away from many of the restaurants, bars, and shops. But not beachside you need to go out to enjoy the sunset.
(2) Facilities – Really cool design and layout with plenty of common spaces meant to facilitate interaction between the guests. Clean and well maintained. No pool (who cares?).
(3) Service – Professionally run while maintaining the hostel culture. The manager’s years of experience in hospitality shows.

I would highly recommend SPIN for backpackers, solo travelers, and couples/friends who want to meet other people and experience the hostel lifestyle.

Thanks, Kuya Don, Joseph, and Maki!

Room tip: There is no wifi dedicated to the rooms so, if you need wifi, request for the room closest to the main area.
Date of stay: November 2021

Really pleased with my stay here. Can honestly say this is one of the nicest hostels iv stayed at my hole time in southeast asia. Hostel is so clean bathrooms are sparkling. Breakfast is delicious and caters for all diets. Eggs made fresh the way you want them as well as a selection of fruit breads spreads and cheeses. Pancakes also made fresh to order. Lots of events on in the hostel bar. Wifi is the best and you get it in the dorms as well as common areas. Free laundry service available. Oh and tea coffee and drinking water available 247. Staff are more than happy to help you with anything you need. To kat and the rest of the staff thankyou for a wonderful stay. If I return to el nido this is where I will stay! Lastly would like to share this picture of the bbq they had food was Devine and only 350pesos all you can eat!

Really enjoyed our stay at Spin hostel. It was exceptionally well maintained and the staff were really helpful. Breakfast is a highlight with an egg and pancake station and the hostel bar was good too. Great location near to the beach and the main strip.

I’ve probably stayed in 100 hostels and Spin is by far the best! With 4 bed spacious, air conditioned dorms it almost feels like you’re in a hotel.
The included breakfast is amazing (especially the pancakes) and there is always a social event on every night down at the hostel bar, so it’s super easy to meet new people.
The thing that makes Spin hostel stand out the most is the amazing staff there, every staff member you walk past will ask how you are.
Dondon the manager is never seen without a smile on his face and gives the best hugs around! Melqui, Rosiel and Kat on reception are so lovely and welcoming. They will help you book tours, onward transport, give you advice on where to go/what to do and might even join you for a drink when they clock off if you persuade them enough ;)
Spin now feels like a 2nd home to me, and I can’t wait to go back!

Travelled solo to El Nido and read some good reviews on Spin hostels. Decided to book 3 nights and had the time of my life, met the greatest people from the UK, Austria, and Morocco. Nothing to complain about, the staff were wonderful and especially Sir Don, the manager of the hostel. You can tell he truly loves his job, so nice and helpful.
Can't wait to return next year.
