Really good amenities and the best hostel kitchen I've ever seen. Really comfortable place to stay and meet new people although it's a bit far away from Whistler town and means paying $5 to get there and back.

I came into this hostel for 60$ per night with a friend because my favorite hostel was full-booked. I was paying for her as well. I was expecting $120 with tax. When I came in they said I had to pay nearly $200. I thought "Whatever, I must be miscount something" and went to our co-ed dorm. I wanted to... More

This is a very nice hostel, feels like a hotel more than a hostel. The location isn't the closest to the village but there is a bus that stops right outside the hostel that will take you to the village. They could pay more attention to detail when cleaning, wasn't the cleanest. The second floor and the doors slamming is... More

This is a really nice hostel. It's clean, reception is helpful and there's everything a traveller could need. It's not right in the centre of town but there's a bus that's super easy to catch and is really frequent. Would definitely recommend staying here.

This Hostel is amazing! It's really more like a hotel! We stayed in a private en suite double and really it was like a fairly decent hotel room! They even laid out folded towels and toiletries at the end of the bed! The kitchen/dining facilities and common areas were just fantastic, with amazing views and a lovely outdoor balcony/seating area.... More

Nice clean basic room, however I was pleased that we had only booked to stay here for 3 nights. The location is good, if you have a car it is only a short drive to Whistler Village. My biggest issue with this hostel is their lack of respect and courtesy for all of their guests not just the rowdy partying... More

This place has everything basic if not fancy( that's what we needed!), nice location, elevator, kitchen, clean rooms, enough parking, free wi-fi and a cordial staff. We loved our stay over there and would love to visit this place again.

I have stayed in a lot of hostels in my time but none as nice as this one. It was built for the athletes during the winter games so it feels far more like a high class hotel than a hostel. It still maintains a good social side too though with a spacious common room where you can shoot some... More

We found the staff to be very friendly, which is just about the only saving grace of Hi-Whistler (apart from the view, which is spectacular)! Firstly, they need to deal with a booking issue by which you are tricked into confirming a booking at a set price to only find out on arrival that the quoted price includes the discount... More

I stayed at HI Whistler with my family for 2 nights, and we booked a private dorm: 2 bunk beds and en suite washroom. it was clean and comfortable and we had enough room to open all our big luggages. There's a big kitchen and a nice dining room, with a nice view, an elevator, and a laundry with washing... More
