The hostel staffs are very accommodating. They also offer trek tours, snorkeling and diving. We didnt have any problem except that the wifi is inaccessible our room; nevertheless, we will definitely book here again when we go back to DGT. Highly recommended!!!

If you plan on going on a tour or snorkeling or diving this is the place you should stay, mostly for convenience since they gather in the front of hotel at 6:45 a.m. Harolds has so much potential, being where it is located. But... they definitely need a backup generator, power went out 4 times within the first 24 hours,...

Stayed in one of the rooms at the roof top. Pretty basic room with fan and a shared bathroom. They have free coffee and tea. They also have wifi. The room is clean and good for resting. For a place that cost 400 pesos a night, I couldn't ask for more.

Hmmmmm.... we must have either had a one off bad night here or other reviewers have had some average stays in philippines. Harolds is well positioned for backpackers but could be so much more. Rooms were standard for old backpacker building but relatively clean. Roof top was good but not much of atmosphere when we stayed. Breakfast was very basic,...

Girls dorm better than boys dorm. Girls had a clean, pleasent room with hot water showers whilst the boys had a damp smelling dorm with half decorated walls and cold showers. Rooms had A/C and fans.

Nice place to stay with good breakfast, rooms and bathrooms are what you get for that price, don't expect superclean and beautiful rooms. Rooftop bar and restaurant is a great place to meet other travelers. The guys @ the reception are very helpful. Safe place and dive shop is next door.

I recently stayed here and the accommodation is good, but the highlight is the food. Healthy vegetable spring rolls, excellent soups and perfectly cooked fish. I particularly enjoyed the Vietnamese vegetable rolls with peanut sauce! The hostel also offers an excellent dive shop with excursions to a turtle sanctuary and to swim with whale sharks.

Harold's offer all-in-one package - especially for backpacking travellers and divers. The hostel offers cozy ambiance and provides excellent opportunity to interact with other solo travelers. Diving is excellent as well as the DMs know the best spots in the area.
