“Price speaks for itself”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

travelled alone for business and was not happy for the room itself, water is rusty smell, room smells terrible, oldy like feeling & the faucets are broken...staff or maybe ojts are all watching tv in the lobby creating a lazy crowded cheap receiving area....

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2011

Homey feel with a 7-11 convenience store next door. Jeepney to Mabalacat gate just behind the hostel. From SM, there's also a jeepney to the hostel (PhP14.50) (I eat dinner in SM since there are no accessible decent meals around the area).

Room is tidy but the white bed sheets have stains. Bathroom is also clean with shampoo and soap. No complimentary water. Weak wi-fi (no signal in my room).

Service personnel are very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: ask for a discount!

The hostel is not truly a "hostel" in the Western sense of the word. Motel is more accurate, though motel has a negative connotation in the Philippines. The rooms are small and clean and reasonably priced. There is a decent restaurant on-site.

Clark Hostel is a decent place to stay in at Clark. The room was clean and still pretty new. The rates were quite reasonable as well. These are the good points on Clark Hostel. On the down side, there were quite a few. I was hoping that the service would be a little friendlier and more personalized since it was a smaller hotel compared to the others. I guess I was looking for the care of a B&B. I was also very turned off that the front desk charged me an additional 5% for using my credit card. This wasn't told to me when I inquired at first. Regarding the room, it would also have been good if they provided a decent blanket. I got cold so I turned off the air conditioner. The problem with this is that all the noise from the cars, cleaning personnel, and activities from the other rooms were all heard since the rooms are very near to each other. Clark Hostel was a pretty okay stay.

  • Liked — Cleanliness
  • Disliked — 5% surcharge for credit card
