This newly build hostel is definitely the most classy one I've seen. The decor is modernistic, everything is kept very clean. There is an elevator in case you have heavy luggage, the private rooms have a flatscreen tv and towels (big and small) and shampoo+soap just like in a regular hotel. The lounge serves breakfast and dinner which was delicious but not cheap (we paid $22 for a wrap and a BLT and 2 pops). Maybe not the best choice if you travel without a car because the hostel is located about 7km out of town, even though I was told the is a bus that runs between the two. There was also a small store across the street that sells food that may come in handy.

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
