i was really suprised by this hostel. the common area, especially the billard and entertainment rooms are the best common areas I have seen in any hostel on the world so far. rooms are pretty standard, bathrooms are spacious and look brand new. if you are skiing the location is a bit poor. there are busses running which is ok, but if you wanna go for drinks/party in Whistler it's kind of a pain to get back to the HI hostel. location is really the only downside. all the rest was brilliant.
- 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
