We had an awesome experience here at Spin Designer Hostel for a week! The staffs were very accommodating and welcoming. They’ll always greet at you with a smile whenever you encounter them on the hallway. Even if you request for anything, they’ll sure provide it to you in a jiff. Every morning, we’re greeted by scrumptious meal in the breakfast nook. And take note, breakfast is in buffet style with wide selection of food from rice meals, breads, pancakes, fruits and juices (also you can request for your breakfast egg on how it is to be done like sunny side up, well done, omelet, scrambled or even top it with cheese.) You can comeback and fill your plates again if you’re not full yet. Aside from that, each night they have different events like BBQ night, margarita night, karaoke night, and movie night. They post it in a cute bulletin board near the lounge so every guest will be notified about on what event is happening when the night time bites. They are so eager to invite you to those events so that guests can socialize and meet new friends at the place. Shout out to the staffs, manager and supervisor of this beautiful place, especially Ms Sheena Mae for making our stay wonderful. Kudos to your great team! I will highly recommend Spin Designer Hostel to other friends and families who’s planning to go on a trip in El Nido, Palawan.

We booked via Agoda for three rooms, and there was some inflexibility in booking different types of rooms. Upon arriving, the hostel’s manager was gracious enough to change one of the rooms (single to double bunk).

On the first night, we were lucky to have a videoke night!

Food was good too, and when one of my friends craved for sinigang, the restaurant cooked it for her even if it wasn’t on the menu.

Rooms are quiet and beds are comfortable, plus the breakfasts are hearty.

If you are looking for an experience in El Nido, look no further than Spin Hostel.

Room tip: Sunday night is karaoke night! There are also game nights for guests during the week where you can mingle with other guests.

If you are traveling solo and want to meet and interact to different people with different background and culture spin is a must try. Spin hostel gives a very homely vibe that would make you wanna stay longer, from very friendly and accommodating staff, great food with huge servings, what else is there to look for, they have it all.
If you are looking to chill after a long day of tours and island hopping you could just stay the night at spin cause they do karaoke nights, barbecue and beer pong.

I love spending (working) vacations at Spin. That's why i always book my accommodation in El Nido here. The rooms are very conducive to rest (very cold a/c, warm shower is consistent, and the bed and pillows are to die for) - especially after a long day of doing activities, partying included. Their area in the town is not in the middle of everything, but pretty close (like walking distance) - especially when peace and quiet are needed.

During my 1-week stay, they held theme nights - beer pong night, bbq night, and karaoke night -- which allowed the guests to mingle and bond with each other. I always meet the most amazing people, when i stay here at Spin. Which i really liked because that's what hostels are supposed to encourage. Food was really great (much thanks to Chef Lionel!)

Staff, as always, are very friendly and very familial. They really make sure that you are enjoying your stay and that you are comfortable. I had a few requests (that seemed petty), and they were able to deliver and adjust to my needs. Well done to Spin's staff, and glad to see them complete again. Don, Ritchie, Shiena, Claire, Anne, Jun, Jeff, John Lloyd, Rona, and the security guards, esp. Dablo -- keep up the great work!

I definitely recommend Spin. I am excited for the swimming pool (with slide?) they are planning to build soon.

I booked my stay online through their website which was easy to navigate and making a reservation was a breeze. Front office/ concierge service and assistance was excellent from day 1. The place is within the El Nido Poblacion/ town but not too noisy - everything in town is just a short walk away. The room I stayed in (4 pax sharing M/F) has windows looking out into the garden. I travelled solo and the nightly socials made it very easy to meet fellow local and foreign travelers to swap stories, join up for DIY trips to explore non-tour beaches, scooter ride around the northern part of the island where we were able to hire a boat to an island and snorkel around a shipwreck (5-15 feet down). Ritchie from the Front Office/ Concierge knows where the best places are to eat at, to chill and hangout in, to explore off the beaten path places and keep you updated on upcoming in-hostel socials - make sure to do the Karaoke Night (prep your songlist)! I originally booked my stay for 9 days but ended up staying a total 20 days - extended my stay twice ! =)

Room tip: *Get a room at ground level more convenient
