At first it seems that UBC is basic in facilities but in the end that adds to its charm. The rooms are adequate which means that guests all hang out in the lounge and kitchen which makes it more sociable than other hostels where people can stay in their room with the wifi.
The addition of a hot tub, spa and vintage Mrs Pac-man are a great bonus. The wifi access is fast making skype calls and video streaming easy.
The staff are helpful and knowledgable. One of them went out of his way to ring around and organise the parts to be delivered for my helmet.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Whistler Lodge is a 42 bed backpacker's hostel, centrally located just 3km south of Whistler Village and 1km north of Whistler Creekside. Our historic lodge was built in 1965 by students from UBC's Varsity Outdoor Club and until recently, was operated by the Alma Mater Society of UBC. Now under new management, we offer bunks in dorm style rooms as well as private and semi private rooms. If you are looking for an authentic Whistler experience, come stay with us! ... more less
