We've never been in that type of accommodation yet. We were surprised during our dinner and breakfast time. All these people whose were prepared all their meal, like some community. It was interesting experience. And sharing fridge? Crazy, I was surprised that our breakfast was still there - unstolen :-).

It is a little out of the way from Whistler Village itself and not really in walking distance to any places to eat (apart from the cafe downstairs which is really good for breakfast). Bus stop right outside which goes into the Village however. In a very new suburb in town, new houses everywhere and although we stayed in a... More

I didn't even realise this was a hostel until i saw the girl on the front desks name badge which had Hostel International on it! We had a private room which was massive as with our en suite bathroom and the view was beautiful and also had a view of the 4x track too. Laundry, kitchens, communal areas and cafe... More

At 67 I wasn't sure about staying in a backpacker hostel, but was very happy with the accommodation.Regular buses run the 15 min (?) ride to Whistler. I had a large modern clean private room with ensuite bathroom . Wi fi, coffee shop and communal kitchen at the hostel kept me happy, as did a small grocery just across the... More

Not in central whistler, but really great for everything else. Hostel was clean, the common room and kitchen were fantastic, the view from the common room balcony was spectacular. Only thing I would mention is that they need to change the shower curtains. Also recommend you get your morning coffee from the cafe in the hostel as it was awesome.... More

This is a very new and professionally run hostel, so you can expect the amenities to be top notch (better than a lot of 2-3 star hotels). I was based in a four person dorm (which I think is standard), and you had amble storage, nice bathroom, and for each bed you had light, sockets and a shelf. At the... More

This hostel has to be my favourite one that I've stayed in in Canada so far (out of 7-8 roughly). Although the Olympic village is a bit out the way from the main shops, restaurants and bars, it's only a short bus ride away. We stayed in a lovely 2 bunk bed room with a shared bathroom, toilet and sink... More

Everything is new and clean! Their is a big lounge with a pool table, lots of couch, a patio, a TV and even a little cinema room. The laundry is huge too and the little coffee shop in the lobby serves delicious food. Moreover, the staff is friendly and welcoming. I have only good words to say about this place... More

This Hostel is great! It is clean, quiet, comfortable and in a beautiful location away from all the busyness of the Whistler Village. It is easily accessible by the bus ($2.50 and free on Sat) and runs very frequently. The bus ride is about 20 mins. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Opened in July 2010, the HI-Whistler is a purpose-built hostel that was originally used as part of the Whistler Athletes' Village during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. This brand new facility sets the standard in hostelling with all the amenities you'd expect and then some.There's more to HI-Whistler than just a place to sleep. Grab a coffee and snack at Cheaky's Cafe in the hostel lobby, lounge on the outdoor decks with mountain views, store your bike, skis, and boards in the equipment storage room, hang out in the media room with its 52" HDTV and meet some cool new folks over a free game of pool or foosball in the games room. ... more   less
