Stayed here with my family (wife, 6 year old boy and 4 year old girl) just for a weekend trip to Whistler from Vancouver. It was great staying amongst young (teenagers and twenty year olds) travelers from different parts of the world. There was a cross country competition on, so lot of the other guests were taking part in that. There were no issues with noise or feeling like our family was intruding. All the guests were friendly and polite, the staff were also accommodating and friendly. Even though the rooms were basic, we had our own private room for 4 and the kids LOVED the bunk beds.
As it is a new hostel tit is clean and well laid out. Nice coffee shop on the ground floor and a large kitchen and dinning room upstairs. There was a games room and TV room as well, which was appreciated by the kids amongst us.
We are looking forward to satying again as well as other hostels around the world with the family.
