We stayed in a dorm room for 3 nights in March and were impressed with this hostel. Everything is new and modern, and the dorm rooms only have 4 beds in each (I'm pretty sure none were bigger than that) so it's not a huge communal living environment. We were really impressed at how clean everything is, all the staff... More

We had a private room at the hostel and it was excellent, I have stayed in plenty of hotels that are not as nice. Really good kitchen and WiFi. Bus service into the village is regular and cheap. Pleanty of storage for skiis and boards.

Really enjoyed my recent stay at the HI-Whistler. Was in a room with 2 bunk beds (4 beds). The room was clean, had a window that opened, and enough room for people to move around (though not as spacious as a hotel room). The adjoining bathroom had one shower, one toilet, and two sinks and was shared by a second... More

We stayed here 4 nights and were impressed with standard of rooms [they have privat, double rooms with en-suite and tv] and facilities. The hostel is not too far away from the gondola and we definitely would recommend this place for any budget conscious travellers.

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... More

This hostel is by far the newest/cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in. I stayed here over Christmas and New Years Eve and it had a real family vibe going. Everyone staying there is rad, the common area is great, and the pool table is better. They have the best kitchen area I've seen in a hostel with big fridges... More

I stayed at the HI Whistler for 3 weeks from January into early February 2014 and I loved every moment, rooms are well set out and cleaned daily, hostel staff were always friendly and helpful, making it a really great atmosphere. The hostel is out of Whistler Village but I never found it a problem with busses leaving regularly from... More

Very clean and friendly staff. The rooms were large and looked like a hotel room with bunk beds. We had our own washroom with shower which was great. The kitchen was large so great for cooking. The bus ride was about 20 min from the village and cost $2.50 so it wasn't a big deal that the hostel was not... More

This hostel has plenty of potential as it's modern and a 15 min bus ride from the Village ($2.50 each way though)! I'm really not sure how they won an award for cleanliness. I've been in a dorm for 3 nights, arrived with unvacummed carpets, stains on tiles, dirty bathroom & my room stinks! I asked yesterday for a quick... More

My partner and I stayed in a private room, private bathroom at HI Whistler. Was more like a hotel, towels/soaps etc on the bed, large flat screen TV in room. Room had big windows looking out over the grounds and mountains, was bliss! Was pricey, approx $140 per night (hence the 4/5 rating), but that's Whistler for you. Very quiet,... More
