SPIN designer Hostel El Nido: Our finest Hostel Experience in Palawan

They discovered me at the typical area, playing bingo. Yes, bingo.

“We’ve been waiting on you downstairs,” my new good friends said. “We believed you were in your room.”

Alas I was not. I was in the business of fun-loving backpackers from around the world, each of us meticulously arranging our piles of small pebbles that would be my markers on the two cards that bore random numbers. The next round was just about to start. Friday nights are Bingo nights at spin El Nido.

Hostels are a few of my preferred things about traveling. Sure, I sometimes select to splurge as well as sashay my method into a hotel room, or be more immersive as well as bond with locals at a homestay, however hostels would always be my top choice, particularly when traveling alone. It is this delightful environment of neighborhood that got me hooked. nothing beats satisfying like-minded people as well as finding destinations together for the very first time.

If a random complete stranger asks for suggestions on the very best locations in the Philippines, El Nido (if not the entire Palawan province) would make it to the top five. El Nido has tons of natural wonders as well as a dash of nightlife. provided my constant thirst for anything alcoholic — yep, it’s true, just ask my humongous stomach — it is something that is always a consideration for me. however before this trip, none of the spaces I tried had provided me any type of outstanding experience. They were all just alright, not much to remember. That is why spin was such a surprise.

Completed just earlier this year, spin designer Hostel is still in its infancy. Hence, its every single corner is spanking new as well as squeaky clean. however freshness means a great deal of different things at SPIN. other than its youth, the general style of the location is a breath of fresh air. Take the spaces as an example.

During my week-long stay, I was able to try: a single personal room, a twin personal room, as well as a four-bed dormitory.

Dormitories. The dorms are huge. two bunk beds lie on either end of the space with lots of area to move around in between. Lockers for every occupant stand on the side of the windows, which are likewise huge sufficient to enable adequate light in. Curtains can be drawn if you desire a bit shade or ensured privacy. P1000 per bed per night.

The bathroom door, separating the actual bedroom from the toilet as well as bath, transforms into a divider, separating the toilet from bath, when it is opened. It is likewise equipped with a rainfall shower as well as a bidet spray. The space likewise has a little desk with a chair as well as a great deal of illumination options. Single, P2500 per bed per night. Double/Twin 1250 per bed per night.

If there’s one complaint that I at first had, it’s that they provided only one pillow per guest, however you might always request more if you’re such a hugger (like I am. Not that you requirement to know. Not that I requirement to share. What am I doing?).

One thing that makes spin truly stand out from competition is the design, something that they like to brag that it’s really part of their name. designer hotel may noise lofty at first, however a title apt as well as well-deserved. one of my pet peeves in many hostels is that they quickly provide in to the temptation of converting as much area as bedrooms to boost revenue. however spin does not jeopardize any type of breathing space where it is needed. The high-ceiling as well as vast typical Area, for example, makes the stay at the lounge, kitchen, as well as dining area so comfortable. even the balcony next to it is wide sufficient for an outside movie screening, which is what’s in store for guests every Saturday night.

The unisex (yep!) typical bathroom is likewise surprisingly spacious, housing shower spaces as well as toilet rooms. Yep, rooms, not cubicles. (Hurray for not making us share the scent from within us!) as well as just like the personal rooms, the toilets have bidet sprays as well as the shower spaces have rainfall heads.

Shared bathroom (Unisex)
Being a light packer traveler means I did not bring many clothes with me, which required one more important space: the laundry Room. There’s one on the ground level with one machine that is simple to operate. The only thing it lacks is a dryer, however there’s a fan in its stead.

Now let’s talk about breakfast. Each booking, whether you’re staying at a dorm or a personal room, entitles you to a light breakfast: mainly bread (loaves as well as pandesal), spreads (pineapple as well as strawberry jam), eggs (omelette or sunny side up), as well as juices (orange as well as mango). as well as if you want to cook, the kitchen area is just there for you like a clingy lover.

There’s always something happening at the typical Area, particularly on weekends. Whether it’s movie screenings, bingo nights, or just random game, they always have a method of keeping guests from being bored. The lounge is likewise the location for those who like to play, be it board games or music. So if you are light sleeper, tell them to not designate a space near the typical Area.

The beach front as well as the parallel roads (Quezon as well as Serena streets) are where most the action is in El Nido. spin is in neither. It is located on the edge of the town appropriate however not as well far away. areas of rate of interest are still within walking distance. The beach is just two blocks away as well as the restaurant lane a block. An adjacent sari-sari store (small convenience store) offers almost whatever you requirement from toiletries to booze. Lastly, there’s a tricycle lane just in front of the building, which makes everywhere else reachable in a minute or two.

Staff as well as Service

During my stay, the personnel was generally friendly as well as polite, however not rigid at all. They were down for whatever the guests are enjoying. They sing, hold games, as well as even make jokes. The spaces were likewise kept neat every day, as well as they can be relied on when it comes to suggestions as well as directions.

I’m pleased I was invited to try Spin. I remember, as I was staying at the lounge one night, I was reminded of the very first time I stayed at a hostel. It was in Cameron Highlands, Malaysia, as well as it was just a twist of fate. I failed to book a hotel in advance as well as for some reason ended up at a hostel, which [turned out to be] a life-changer. It was one of those moments that will permanently be with me. The believed went into my mind once again since spin reminded me of why I fell in like with hostels in the very first place. spin is definitely, hands down, the very best hostel experience I’ve had in the Philippines.
