This hostel was built in 2010 for the Winter Olympics and it still looks very new, very modern and very clean. Big commercial kitchen, but I recommend bringing your own food from Vancouver - there's no big supermarket nearby, only small stores. It's a $2.50 one way bus trip to Whistler, but if you're staying for any length of time 10 trips and monthly passes can be purchased from reception. Make sure you have the correct change for the bus.
- 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
