Booked this hotel about 3 weeks ago. Highly recommended by my friend from Tanjay City. Its not a typical hotel. Its more of a place for backpackers. The room i got was a double standard. Prices at 800 per night. Booked it via agoda and didn't have any problems paying using a mastercard. The room has very basic amenities. Clean... More

If there's a better place to stay in Dumaguete, I haven't heard of it. I was planning on staying here only a few nights but got locked in during a category five typhoon (which was later downgraded) but I ended up having to stay over a week because of cancelled ferries. Overall: -Harold's place is a great value for what... More

A great place to meet people with a nice bar upstairs. The location is also very good with a lovely breakfast. Only disappointment was that the two girls at the front desk tried telling me there were no dorm rooms available and instead I should pay for the more expensive single room. I knew this was a lie and in... More

Stayed there one night, all and all it's a good place for backpackers (nice rooftop floor). But, if you plan to dive, I would not recommend using their diving shop at all: 1. I measured my diving suit before we left the shop and it was perfect. Then, we we were already on the boat and on the way to... More

The attitude among the staff is very different: Some are nice but there was two girls at the front desk who were the most unfriendly people I've met in SE Asia. Their eyes were telling: Please ask someone else cause I really don't wanna look up from my smartphone + a rude answer were guarantied. Positive stuff: Nice rooftop, free... More

Just a bit outside of the city center, Harold's Mansion guesthouse has everything you need in Dumagete. It's 5 minutes from the center, Roxas (the boardwalk) and the pier to Siquijor/Buhol. I stayed here twice, both times in the female dorm, which was relatively spacious with nice beds and lockers and an in-room bathroom. Very fair price for the Philippines... More

It was really a nice stay here in Harold's! They have clean rooms, bathroom, and very nice rooftop where you can chill, play pool, and make friends with other guests staying! They have bicycles for free, and we were able to use those to tour around the city! They offer diving and snorkeling tours. And they offer the best experience... More

The room was small but clean. Wifi works mainly at the reception and on the rooftop. The rooftop is a very nice meeting point, where all the travelers can relax. There was some live music played and the food that was served was tasty. Only bad experience was when they cancelled the tour I booked for 8am at...7:55am! and reception... More

We booked for 8days to our stay but our friends in Sipalay invited us to join their parties so we made a change. We stayed for 5 days. Everything was wonderful!
