Our room had a big flat screen tv with cable, which was an awesome treat after having just spent 2 weeks away from civilization. However, the mattress & pillows are covered in mould. Bathroom is also mouldy. I could handle the mould situation for 2 nights but what I struggled to handle with was the customer service being so poor,... More

Harolds is ideal for solo-travelers, and provide Dumaguete's friendliest accomodation so far. Harold, the owner, and most of the staff are able to provide diving tips and other adventure trips that the place can offer.

For a reasonable price , you get decent room and a clean bed. The reception was very helpful. The most enjoyable part of my stay at the Harold's was the rooftop common area where i meet and chat with interesting travellers from all over the world.

I stayed at Harold's for 6 days. It is a nice place to stay for backpackers or young couples. The dorm room costs 250 peso which is quite cheap I think. There are a lot of backpackers and the food they offer is also pretty good. They have their own diving centre and I got my SSI certification with them.... More

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
