Harolds seems to be the buzzing epicentre of all tourism in Dumaguete. It is a really big hostel with a great rooftop terrace where breakfast is served, pool can be played and you can have food and drinks until late in the evening. We stayed in a double room with private bathroom. It was clean and decent with aircon. Nothing... More

People working there seem to hate their jobs and lack any kind of friendliness and helpfulness you are used to in the Philippines. It really diminishes the experience. Difficult to say if is their boss, a bad salary or just a disgust of tourist. The place offers competitive tour packages and has great rooftop chillout.

Harolds Mansion also owns a boat for dive and snorkel trips to Apo Island. But the whole boat operation is dangerous and unsafe !! My day on Harolds boat was a disaster ! The boat broke down at 11am and 9hours later we were still drifting in the open ocean, in the dark, and no life jackets and with 20... More

Nice place to meet people, good location, good price, good information, good food, free wifi and free breakfast. We had a private family room, 3 single beds, aircon and TV for under 400pesos each....cant complain at that.

5 nights at Harold's with 3 days of diving. I took a double fan room with en suite and it was fine. Clean, hot water so couldn't ask for much more. Friendly open social area up top which is a cool place to chill after diving. Pool table has definitely seen better days. Beers is cold and cheap. There's no... More

Did not like hostel at all. Staff was grumpy all the time. Had to take an AC room that smelled mouldy for the first night and reserved fan room for the next night, but when we came back late from a day of diving fan room was not avaiable and we had to stay in the mouldy and more expensive... More

Stayed here for a few nights recently and I must admit I was entirely contented with my stay. The rooms have air-con and en-suites, however are a bit stuffy. It is really cheap though so you can't really go wrong. The main bad point was the receptionists who seemed rather disillusioned and seemed not to really want to be there... More

Harold looked after us well, gave us good advice, showed us around the town as weather was rubbish and even arranged surfing lessons! The wifi is only... More

Cheap prices and air conditioned rooms make it perfect for backpackers. The place is safe too with lockers to store your stuff. There is free wifi for guests, but not in the rooms, just in the upstairs bar, bit of a pain. As I said, cheap prices so it's never going to be luxury. Staff Just not being friendly or... More
