Why I keep coming back
I would have to claim that Spin is my home away from home. It was my 3rd time staying here, and despite the pandemic, everything is still the same... if not improved. The amenities are still top-notch, and constantly being upgraded. The staff, still world-class. These you wouldn't expect from a regular hostel, but Spin really would exceed your expectations. For the 2 weeks i spent there, i fell really taken care of. They made sure that i was getting the best Spin experience they can offer, given limitations and challenges of the pandemic. They treated me like i was one of their own, like family. And that's nice. I was racking my brain before writing this review to see if i can point out negatives, but i cannot. I had a really good time in Spin -- it was something special. Don, Joseph, Macky, Darryl, Marjun, and the 2 other security guards -- thank you so much! I will see you all when i get back! Spin swimming pool soon, yes? Cheers! …
BACK IN BUSINESS
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! …
SMILES ALL ROUND
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.
Best hostel I’ve ever stayed in!
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! …
