Very nicely kept hostel in Whistler, BC. Everything is very clean and relatively quiet. The hostel staff is always friendly and willing to help. Be aware that this is a HOSTEL and by definition you can have other people in your room that you don't know (depending on your accommodation selection). You can always lock up your stuff before you leave the room - although I never felt the need.
The thing to keep in mind is that you cannot walk to the village or lifts from the Hostel. So if you have a car, no big deal. Buses run pretty frequently to the village for $2.50 Canadian. Getting back can be more of an issue is you go out in the village at night, so either plan your return trip, or be prepared to pay the $25 CAN back to the Hostel.
- 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
