We stayed in both a private room and a shared room. I would for sure recommend to stay in the private room as this is same standard as rooms in 2 or 3 stars hotel. Big rooms with a okay bed, bathroom with shower and toilet - nothing to complain about. The building was build for the Olympics so it... More

The hostel was built for the 2010 winter olympics so everything is well designed and looks very clean and new! The beds are a little larger than normal and are super comfy. There is lockers in the rooms for extra security. The bathroom is shared between two rooms and the shower is pretty good! The room was a reasonable size,... More

I've stayed here eight to ten times over the past four years. I've also stayed at the other major hostels (UBC & Fireside) on multiple occasions. This is my choice. It has everything - cleanliness, a full kitchen and eating area, a great little cafe downstairs and super helpful staff. The second floor, along with the kitchen has a big... More

I booked a room for one night, for the first weekend Whistler was open for snowboarding. It was only $85 with taxes for a private room with a private bathroom. The room was spacious & had a nice bathroom, bed & tv. The hostel also had a place where you keep your boarding equipment, the room is secure and has... More

This hostel in the Whistler area is more expensive than your typical hostel. Our family of 4 booked a family room: own private bathroom. There were bunks beds (4 singles). it was clean and basic. The heat continues to come on and in the summer months, there is no air condition. The small window does not allow for proper air... More

This was my first time staying in a hostel. The place was nice and location very good. Service was a bit direct and no accommodating. Very easy to book and they communicate well. Amenities were good but place was not very clean but I attribute that more to the clientele.

Being built for the Winter Olympics, this hostel is quite modern. It looks nice and the rooms are quite spacious. The staff are friendly, however there are still some things that need improving. The bunk beds are pretty squeaky and the heating is automatic, and would often get extremely hot. There is only one bathroom amongst 8 females. The housekeeping... More

I stayed here for 1 night in August 2015 in a private double room. The room and bathroom was clean and the furniture was in a good condition. There was a great view from the room. The hostel is located in a very quit area and there is no problems with noise inside the hostel. I slept well here and... More

Nice modern facility. Functional rooms and comfortable beds. Can catch bus in to town from hostel. Location not the best but it's worth it. Few trails to walk near by the hostel. The restaurant/cafe is a bit expensive for the quality of food produced. Staff friendly

As a 50+ couple, this was our first experience staying in hostel accommodation and we were pleasantly surprised. The private double room with ensuite had everything we needed. There was the option of preparing and cooking our own food in the communal kitchen and dining room, eating in the onsite cafe or eating out. We prepared and ate breakfast in... More
