Very convenient location close to ferry. 800 pesos for AC room. 500 for fan room. Nice hostel with free pool table, breakfast and tea and coffee. Big tv to watch movies on lazy days. The rooms could just do with a bloody good clean. The bathroom was well decorated but just a bit dirty. Rooms perfectly adequate, just need a...

My flight was cancel because of a low pressure turn into a typhoon. It was only a few hours before the usual 2PM check in time. I sent a text message to the management telling them my flight was cancelled and if possible, rebook for tomorrow. They replied immediately telling me I can use my paid reservation today for tomorrow....

Harolds Mansion is a perfect pick for backpackers. It is locaded just 7min walk from the pier and is easy to find. I stayd in the female dormroom and it was very clean, nice bunkbeds and lots of fans and saftyboxes. Just what you need. And so cheap to. The rooftop is really nice, pooltable, wifi and cheap good food....

Location is handy as it's a five minute walk from the pier. First impressions from staff, glum, quite uninterested in helping and not much knowledge of the diving. Out of the seemingly dozens of staff only about 2 were friendly and helpful (and I must say they were VERY friendly) Walked up to the female only dorm which smelled damp...

HAROLD's MANSION, in Dumaguete, Negros, is located fairly close to Dumaguete Port and cross-corner from Siliman University, so the neighborhood is 'active' with coffee shops, restaurants and bars, and boutiques. Harold's was a surprise: It is cleaner than I had expected, and quite well organized! There's Harold's Dive Shop smack next door. The competition do NOT like it, as their...

I stayed in this hotel last May 2 and 3 and I must say, I have mixed feelings about the hotel. Here's my review: 1) Location: GOOD Harold's is five minute ride (ten minute walk) to the city center. It's so near everything so location is definitely great. 2) Rooms: SO-SO I booked using another website (and was already confirmed)...

My boyfriend and I spent our 3nights in Harold's just this recently. At first I was hesitant to book the place because of its cheap room rates yet breakfast is included. What made me book for it was because of the different tour packages they offer and the room pictures on their website looks pretty decent to me, so I...

I do not recommend this place. It is one of the few backpacker places, and it is decently priced, but the problem is the staff; they're horribly unprofessional and seemingly can't think for themselves at all, let alone on their feet. If you do decide to go there, try eating on their roof top "restaurant". It is a ten-minute battle...

Great little hostel. Accommodations are inexpensive, ac dorms and a roof top play area with TV, pool table, couches where plenty of backpackers go and settle in. Dumaguette is a cool city but doesn't have too much there besides caves but it's the perfect place to depart from for diving, snorkelling and island hoping adventuress. Harold's Mansion also has plenty...

Yes, Harold's probably is the only backpacker place in town; yes, you can get a dorm bed for 250; yes, there is a nice rooftop to socialize with other travelers. But they are really not professional and service there is one of the poorest I have experienced during my 2-year wandering. There is an army of staff (mostly young girls)...
