The curtain for your bunk affords you some privacy. A heavy curtain in the doorway(the room has no door) would help cut noise and light. Ovens and freezers are not common and expand your food options.

Very busy. Nowhere to park, kitchen always busy and no where to sit. Dorms were split into upstairs and downstairs with one bathroom which was fine. Location is great nice and central. Bunkbeds were extremely noisey, no privacy curtains on top bunks or power points. It was a fine hostel but nothing amazing. Expensive for what you get.

A very good stop over. Simple but comfortable accommodation close to the centre. No breakfast but plenty of possibilities close by. Built to serve a ski resort the premises are ideal for a base in any season.

The Whistler Lodge Hostel won us over the moment we walked through the door. The front desk was visible and had someone waiting to greet us, check us in and show us around. We were provided with a towel and a made up bed which was quite comfy. Two of our favourite things offered were definitely the sauna and the... More

I've stayed there for a night at the beginning of August. Beautiful location, not convenient if you walk though (50 min walking from village, but bus available), sweet spot, clean showers and bed, fully furnished kitchen. Dorms are open so no walls which could pissed off some people and it was a bit noisy. Earplugs were useful. Still, I would... More

Awesome lodge, I will definitely be staying here again! I got the private room for my girlfriend and I and it was great. The bathrooms are shared but I never ran into anyone else using the bathroom at the same time as me. Short bus ride for $2.50 to the village.

The last time i stayed in a hostel was 30 years ago. This week I stayed in Whistler Lodge Hostel for 6 nights. If all hostels nowadays are like this then boomers would flock to them! The hostel is very well organized and clean. The sleeping dorms are in a separate building from the main lodge so noise is not... More

I like the hostel and would stay here again. Nice, cosy and very clean! You only have to get used to having your luggage upstairs and your bed in the basement, cause there's nothing like a bedroom more like 'bedcorners' but they are very quiet. Theres a bus to whistler, the busstation is a 5-10min walk away.
