For a hostel this is in very good condition and rated against other hostels would normally score highly. However, on the basis that it isnt at what I would consider a reasonal hostel price and the 15 minute drive to Whistler means overall I wouldnt stay here again.
The rooms are nice and clean and there is a nice cafe for breakfast in the morning.
Bizarrely our towels were taken from our room after the first night. These werent replaced and nor were we informed on check in that they would be taken and we would need to get new towels after the first night which was odd. Not sure they really need to be washed after one use!
There is limited parking and on our second night there was no parking available and so we had to park down the road.
