It's very clean, the stuff is friendly and the place is modern. The only downside is that you have to take the Bus to Whistler village(around 20min). All in all HI Hostler has a great value and I can recommend it for people that look for an affordable accommodation in Whistler.

Hello Lee-Ann H, Happy to hear you loved our hostel! We definitely don't want to be pumping A/C all summer long either. We would like to cool it down a bit, though. We are researching other methods. Hope to see you again! Safe travels, Ryan

Was one of the best hostel I've never seen... Better than lots of hotel I've seen in my life ! Bedrooms are clean and the atmosphere is perfect to meet people or to relax. The common kitchen is well equipped. Unforgettable time thanks a lot to the perfect team on the front desk !

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Opened in July 2010, the HI-Whistler is a purpose-built hostel that was originally used as part of the Whistler Athletes' Village during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. This brand new facility sets the standard in hostelling with all the amenities you'd expect and then some.There's more to HI-Whistler than just a place to sleep. Grab a coffee and snack at Cheaky's Cafe in the hostel lobby, lounge on the outdoor decks with mountain views, store your bike, skis, and boards in the equipment storage room, hang out in the media room with its 52" HDTV and meet some cool new folks over a free game of pool or foosball in the games room. ... more   less
