I think we bagged the best room in the house! Beautiful views, quiet and clean making the perfect stay! The staff were really friendly and informative. If you don't have a car it's a little way out of the whistler village but a $2.50 each way bus ticket, or a $10 a day parking if driving! The hostel was close to some super cool trails too including the trainwreck! We loved it! Thank you, HI Whistler.

Had stayed in a few HI-Hostels across Canada and were all positive experiences, this hostel was no different. First arriving it seems more like a hotel than a hostel, very modern and clean. Common room is spacious with lounges, pool table and balcony. Plenty of activities, did the loggers lake hike, as well as a brewery tour, both great and met plenty of people (friendly staff too). Only downside is the proximity to downtown whistler (if you do not have a car), there is no where to get groceries if you've forgotten anything (with the exception of a small Asian grocer across the street). Free buses on the weekend, straight from the hostel. Cafe downstairs is handy, great food but expensive for a backpacker and limited hours (closes at 2pm somedays). Definitely recommend and will be back!

Very nice and helpfull staff, clean kitchen, nice bedrooms with private bathroom (and towels from the hostel) possible. It felt like a hotel! Everything was modern. Good place to stay (8 km from city centre of whistler). Nice hikes in neighbourhood!

There is little to complain about. The hostel is clean, modern and comfortable. The beds were great and the bathrooms were private and pretty. Lot's of mirror room and the shower and toilet were separated in small private rooms. The lounge area had a pool table, a library and a large balcony with stunning views of the mountains. It could have more couches and seating though. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They were able to answer all our questions and provide us with more recommendations than the Info Centre in the village.

The biggest downfall of the location was the distance from everything. It was a 10 minute drive from Whistler village, and there is nowhere in the immediate area to buy food. There is a cafe in the hostel, but the hours are very short. There is a bus that runs very late though that can get you around. And there's also lot's of parking if you have a car. The benefit of being so far from the village is the peace and quiet. You can enjoy the natural settings without the crowds here. I would stay here again, despite the distance.

Built to house athletes for the 2010 Olympics and beautifully re-purposed as a hostel. Clean, bright, new! Possibly the best hostel kitchen ever! Nice views in every direction. Dorms have 4 beds, and 2 rooms share a bath. Comfortable, clean and well maintained. Even an elevator! I'll definitely return!

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views. Kitchen and more public spaces on 2nd floor.
