10/10 would stay again. Try the sauna, it's magical. Oh, also, Carl is nice, it's very easy to beat him in a board game. He also did his best helping me when I fell on one of their bikes, somebody should give this man a medal! No seriously, I'd come back. Probably the best hostel in Whistler!

Probably the best hostel that i have stayed in. It is more like a hotel than a hostel with a huge balcony along the side and a hot tub in the grounds. The location is a bit out of town but its easy to get to the centre on a bus and there is a supermarket 10 mins walk away.... More

The hostel is clean, comfortable, and beautiful. The kitchen has all cooking utensils and equipment and storage with assigned bins for guests. There are couches and a pool table in the common area that has an open, cozy, cabin-feel. The hostel rooms have bunk beds, but there are individual curtains on the beds that offer more privacy than other hostels.... More

Very busy. Nowhere to park, kitchen always busy and no where to sit. Dorms were split into upstairs and downstairs with one bathroom which was fine. Location is great nice and central. Bunkbeds were extremely noisey, no privacy curtains on top bunks or power points. It was a fine hostel but nothing amazing. Expensive for what you get.

The Whistler Lodge Hostel won us over the moment we walked through the door. The front desk was visible and had someone waiting to greet us, check us in and show us around. We were provided with a towel and a made up bed which was quite comfy. Two of our favourite things offered were definitely the sauna and the... More

I've stayed there for a night at the beginning of August. Beautiful location, not convenient if you walk though (50 min walking from village, but bus available), sweet spot, clean showers and bed, fully furnished kitchen. Dorms are open so no walls which could pissed off some people and it was a bit noisy. Earplugs were useful. Still, I would... More

Awesome lodge, I will definitely be staying here again! I got the private room for my girlfriend and I and it was great. The bathrooms are shared but I never ran into anyone else using the bathroom at the same time as me. Short bus ride for $2.50 to the village.

The last time i stayed in a hostel was 30 years ago. This week I stayed in Whistler Lodge Hostel for 6 nights. If all hostels nowadays are like this then boomers would flock to them! The hostel is very well organized and clean. The sleeping dorms are in a separate building from the main lodge so noise is not... More

“If you're in a couple get a 2-bed dorm as you have the 'alcove' to yourself so you don't have to lock your bags away if you don't want to.”
