About JLC Hostel

The guests of JLC HOSTEL will truly experience a friendly and comfortable atmosphere while considering the economic value of their travel budgets. The property is just adjacent to the coastal area where you can view various types of sea transports and can easily access any facilities available in the city proper. In the coastal area is expected to be established an alternate major thoroughfare and some infrastructure projects of international standard.

JLC HOSTEL which was once a residential house before it was transformed into a public domicile is strategically situated just along the main road, hence, mobility needs of the visitors can easily be responded. It is very near the public hospital, the old market, banks and other financial institutions, restaurants and malls, booking offices for tourist destinations, other land, sea and air transport systems, and other private entities.

If a guest opted to stay in a rural-like area, JLC HOSTEL offers that type of environment best suited to him or her. Likewise, its proximity to Rizal Avenue being the major thoroughfare can easily be reached by just walking while experiencing or observing the peculiar characteristics of the people in the locality.

Location Information

Puerto Princesa City 5300

JLC HOSTEL is located along the coastal area or popularly known as the "Bay Walk" by the local residents. It is fronting both the fish port and the seaport which the latter serves as the main anchorage for both passenger and cargo vessels plying en route to Metro Manila, the Visayas, other domestic destinations and vice versa.

Because of its proximity to the naturally crafted and lovely cove, whereby the legendary name Puerto Princesa City was derived,it is geographically unique and you will truly appreciate the gift of nature as you view a body of water bounded by some flat land, slight terrain to high mountain ranges with obviously thick forest vegetation. Hence, Puerto Princesa City which is in the Hall of Fame as the cleanest and greenest city in the Philippines is also popularly dubbed as the "City in the Forest".

The hostel is approximately five to ten minutes drive from the Puerto Princesa City airport and about 10 to 15 minutes walk to Rizal Avenue, the old market, other local establishments and government offices as well.

For the prospective customers, JLC HOSTEL considers the landmark in the vicinity like the PTCI college, the Bay Walk extension and San Miguel Beer warehouse facility as it is known to all drivers of a public transport. It is about 100 meters from PTCI college along Malvar St. and about 50 meters before the coastal line. It must always be noted that since there is also an adjacent road named New Buncag Rd., you must emphasize to the driver that JLC HOSTEL is at 26 OLD BUNCAG ROAD so the latter wil not be confused.
