I spent there 4 nights with a friend on our trip to the great north. We tried 3 different rooms; dorms downstairs, private upstairs and a cabin. And we had a great time every day!
The place is really clean, new, and charming. We got everything we needed - laundry, clean towels, clean bathroom and showers, complete kitchen, board games, bbq, internet and lots of great tips from the lovely host, Nancy, who takes care of everything and knows everybody in town.
It's also a great place to know people, if that's what you want - the other guests became our travel companions on the way to Dawson City. Very international atmosphere - as you cans see from the dozens of postcards sent by thankful guests from all over the world that hang on the walls. In this sense it is great if you're looking for other people to share expenses on your way north, or to experience Whitehorse's nightlife. The atmosphere is really warm and inviting, and the common areas (two lounges indoor, benches and sofas outdoor) are super cozy. The location is pretty good (the town is not so big so everything is relatively close); there is a grocery nearby, visitor center is 10 min away and some great hiking trails really close.
The only annoyance was a german guy (guest? crew?) who told us in a very very mean and rude way to respect the 'quiet time' after 11pm - and we were not even making a noise, just walking to the toilet. But I guess that's no biggie.
To sum it up, it was the best hostel on our trip and one of the best ones I've ever been to. The atmosphere and the crew are great and make the place really familiar and homey - no matter your age or nationality. I can only recommend it! Book in advance on the summer season!
