What is PS mode? 
It's in normal mode and I'm interacting with them while testing.

Interesting news. 
I just connected my Android phone to AP and start pinging both Win7 client and Phone client. So, ping to phone is clear and shows 2-3ms without any spikes, but the Win7 client show spikes every 1 minute 10 sec.
Then, I have turned phone into AP mode and connected to it with Win7 client - spikes appears same as with my Ubuntu AP.
So, I guess the problem not with hostapd.
Later today I'll run Ubuntu Desktop via PXE on same notebook and check this issue again - maybe the problem in Win7 or Intel Drivers.
