Dining in Dumaguete

A travel blog entry by sacha.sukhia


April 8-13, 2012

Finally! We have found a city in the Philippines that we really enjoy. Cebu City and Manila are fine and have all the amenities that you may need, but are both big and dirty. Dumaguete is big enough to have a good variety of shops and restaurants, but small enough that we were able to cycle everywhere in town without fear …

Harold's Mansion

A travel blog entry by nic.slater


If you go to Dumaguete Harold's Mansion is the place to stay. The name reminded me of the nudist hotel I accidentally stayed in during my time in the Florida Keys (please see American blog for further details) but luckily there was nothing untoward about this hostel. It was great as there was a large roof terrace over looking the city and the hold …

Relaxing in Siquijor

A travel blog entry by kevandhazel


After a bit of planning we decided to continue our Philippines advent further south and headed for Dumaguete on Negros Island. So first we had to take a bus to the nearby ferry terminal at Liolan (what a tongue twister). Twenty minutes later we arrived at Sibulan from where we took a jeepney to the port town of Dumaguete which was another 30 …

Arrived yesterday evening and had a few beers on the rooftop bar at the hostel. We went for a late dinner at a nearby local's haunt that Kate and I had walked past on our way to the hostel. We took three other people from the hostel and had a great night with a bunch of beer and live cover music (great singing). We are staying at Harold's …

    Wicked hostel. One of the best hostels I've stayed in around the world.
    Staff are amazing and so so helpful. Brilliant roof top area and the food at the hostel is unbelievable. With out a doubt I would stay here again. Everyone needs to stay here if the are in town

    Relaxed Hostel

    Harold is a great guy and runs the hostel and tours very well. We did two days of diving with Harold's Mansion and the Glenn was a great guide with the dive boat being the best we have seen in the Philippines.
    The hostel was clean and roomy, they will do airport pick ups if you arrange in advance and there are free bicycles to use around the city. Only complaint is the inclusive continental breakfast, tea/coffee with a loaf of white wonder bread leaves a lot to be desired.

    Budget Acommodation ... and budget for a reason

    If you're only going to pay 500 pesos per night for a double room with ensuite bathroom you can't really expect 5 star deluxe accommodation, so we can't really complain about our stay there.

    Room was clean, shower worked (hot water too, which is a bonus). Yes is was noisy and annoying having people chilling out and getting drunk right outside our door (room 208 opens out onto the chillout balcony), but it was only for 3 nights and it was CHEAP!

    good if you're backpacking, want to meet fellow "travellers" and find out more about diving and travelling around the region. Not so great if you want room service, comfy beds and 500 count Egyptian cotton sheets

    A Mansion, in every sense.

    I had a deluxe room, which was big comfortable and all fully functioning. It was on the backside of the Mansion, i understand on the front side there is a lot of noise. Regardless of this the price is right, the cafe does some great tomato salads, and some of the best sandwiches i have had in the Philippines. The staff are all great fun, and only happy to help, the internet, while i was there worked a treat. Highly recommended. The Owner is currently embarking on building some eco hotel rooms...i wish him luck he is a great guy, full of knowledge and stories.
