Hostels in Philippines are usually quite bad. Harold's isn't so bad, but don't expect hotel-like services. During our stay for 4 days no cleaning was done to our room. The staff is always friendly and fairly helpful. Internet (wifi) is available in the reception only - there's just one bench for 3 ppl, so during mornings and evenings expect to... More

Accommodation is reasonable for a glamper but do not get sucked in to their boat/snorkling/diving trips. What a Shame, because that was what ticked HAROLDS MANSION for me! It used to be the perfect island hopping accom+boat package. This is my second time with Harold's Team. As pleasant as his staff could be, the man has heaps to offer but... More

Good food at reasonable prices. Just a bit slow. Good environment to meet people. Good jump off point. Rooftop restaurant/bar Wifi is unreliable. Dive shop didn't ask for anyone's certification. 3 people became nauseous while diving including myself.So ask for clean air certification and smell the air before diving. Fins are crap, and I mean crap. Like the kind you... More

We got got water and aircon for 800 pesos per night. The room was big enough to dump our bags and still move around plus cable TV with a load of English speaking channels for days when weather stops you heading out. Good value! I did however refrain from diving with them due to a few stories I heard but... More

Ive talked to some people and they said its a little bit worn down for them.. but despite of all the flaws, i like Harold's for its homey feel. Entrance: Reception is small but its okay. One receptionist is so cheerful, the other one is not so. It can be crowded sometimes. The room: Pros - Its not tiny. Theres... More

For 800 php I was more than happy with the service and the room. The location was great with most places just 5 minutes away. We met the owner Harold who was totally cool. We booked diving in Apo Island with them which was fine. The best part is we met several super cool people staying at the place. We... More

Stayed with my friends for a total of 6 days, the place was exactly what the other reviewers say so we weren't surprise and expected the worst, however it turned out very pleasant for our group, the front desk is always busy as again this is a HOSTEL-and with that it means there are always to many other guests asking...

Don't go there. Unfriendley service and smelly rooms. Went snorkelling at Apo Island with lots of other tourists. A lot of them were taking pictures while standing on the corals with their fins. I expected the crew to tell them off, but in fact the guide was also standing on the coral taking pictures for the group. The tourists didn't... More

stayed for 3 nights end of december 2015. On my arrival staff at reception seemed pretty stressed and though I had made a reservation they couldn't guarantee that I can keep the room. Still it worked in the end and staff got friendlier at quiet times. The aircon room I had was o.k. though very dark and not very inviting.... More

Since we dont have time to look for any other hostel around the area, we decided to push through with our booking in this hostel. We wanted to enjoy the city. The location is nice since it is very near to the port and siliman university. Walking distance to restaurants. Tricycles are just around the corner (8php or 10php fare).... More
