This place is pretty good for what you get as a backpacker. Sure the rooms are a bit rundown but we had a TV and they have cheap food and a nice, big, open rooftop. The free breakfast is a take it or leave it, and the dive shop is not 5 star but we have a great time diving.... More

The place is shabby and is in very need of renovation. The staff also are quite unreliable with them loosing my booking even if they promised that they noted it down. It was a good thing that I called weeks prior to confirm and it was then when I found out that my booking was not listed. The staff then... More

I made a reservation at Harold's Mansion based on it being the “top choice” for Dumaguete in the Lonely Planet guidebook. Though I enjoyed my stay, the Philippines LP guide was published in 2012, which means that the research was made in 2011. Now in 2015, Harold's Mansion may not be as great as it used to be. The rooms... More

Too crowded. Noisy. Young people at midnight totally drunk screaming. I had a very small third floor room. There is only the bed, nothing else. 800 pesos! It's overpriced. On the roof fourth floor billiard players made fall the balls on the floor, my ceiling, till 1 am, can you imagine? Personnel is always over busy and when they're not,... More

Stayed end of January 2015. For the price, it was fine.. Perfect for budget travelers! Stayed in a standard room (double bed, private bath). Cleanliness: common areas were tidy, room was okay. Staff: okay. (Only one girl at the front desk was really friendly and approachable, but the rest would help if asked) Free breakfast: bread, rice, coffee or tea... More

I stayed in harolds for 3 nights in a big dorm. The bathroom wasn`t really clean, and even it was just me and another woman staying in a 12 bed dorm i had to ask for toilet paper every day. It was handed over to me without a word or smile. They didn`t clean the bathroom once and the staff... More

I stayed in the 8 bed female dorm which was ok for P250 but there was only one bathroom which wasn't cleaned, on the day I checked out the staff "cleaned" the room but the bathroom remained filthy. The room has no ventilation and smells of damp. All this could be forgiven of course, seen as it's a budget option... More

We had heard great things about Harold's mansion. Unfortunately we were sorely disappointed. The customer services was on the most part very poor. Every time you asked a basic question they made out like it was a huge inconvenience. We stayed in two rooms. The first room, flooded terribly (water was pooling out of the door) when it rained. The... More

We came here for one night, before our flight out of Dumaguete. We felt the price of the room was high for what you get in return but they said it includes breakfast. The room was simple. We were there on wednesday when they had live music on their rooftop during their BBQ night, though by the time I got... More
