HI-Whistler is a really clean, modern and fun hostel to stay in while in Whistler. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean and the hostel is in a really nice location, right near a bus stop and close to countless hikes. I really enjoyed my stay here!

Beautiful setting, excellent service, very friendly and helpful staff, and pristinely clean facilities. It is also near the bus stop and some easy walking trails. Definitely would recommend it to everyone. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a great time. The beds were comfy, rooms were clean and the staff were helpful. Would definitely recommend :) The common room was also comfy. Hostel was relatively cheap, but no complementary breakfast like other HI hostels previously visited.

Lots of People need lots of room and have many different needs. So HI-Whistler is a big, well equiped Hostel with every service you could possibly need (as backpacker). But many people also make lots of dirt and usually are hungry at the same time. But its cheap though - so i won't complain :-)

Having stayed in various HI hostels across Canada, I had high hopes for this one given my past experience and the fact it was part of the Olympic village. Check-in went fine, private room was nice enough, but that's where the good points end. The kitchen was filthy and I had to scrub everything I needed before I'd even consider... More

Hello Craig, It’s regretful to hear you had an unpleasant experience with us. In regards to the kitchen, we normally clean the kitchen four times a day, which can be tight for our team with all the other cleaning tasks in a day. Unfortunately, there could be times in between when a mess is made. Although, this might not be... More

My cousin and I came to Whistler for a fun outdoor vacation, and this was absolutely the perfect place to stay. The location, community kitchen, outdoor patios and living areas are great. Plus the customer service is excellent- everyone has been super friendly and helpful, especially Marie-Laure and "J" who have gone above and beyond in helping us to get... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. The hostel is relatively new and it's kept very clean. For guests relying on public transport there are frequent buses that run to and from the different villages. Lots of nice bushwalking opportunities nearby too. Wi-Fi was a bit patchy, but most people seemed figure out the signal was best near the 24/7 reception. If... More

I have been travelling for over 30 years ,and this is the best hostel I've ever stayed in, as far as facilities are concerned. It's a "no brainer" to stay here, A great bus service into town ,seemed like there was a bus outside always. I believe this was part of the Olympic village,well it's won a gold medal!

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
