“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

I was travelling solo for the skiing, and not prepared to spend 200 Canadian dollars a night on a standard room in Whistler For the money it's excellent, the proprieter was excellent and the diner downstairs good and friendly

Personally I would have paid more for better accomadation There must be a market for reasonable priced accomadation of a better standard than general hostels for the slightlly better off solo travellers.

I stayed here recently with my boyfriend for a few nights in a 4 share dorm, its a nice hostel and each room has its own TV area which is nice. It was clean and the staff were helpful, however the only issue was the diner downstairs, the staff there were quiet rude and the hostel itself has a policy where by you are quiet after 10.00 which is not a problem, however the diner downstairs does not abide to this and would have really loud music till at least 1.00 in the morning, and we were lucky enough to be situated right above it! so that was a big let down.

Room Tip: Its a hostel so you get what you pay for - maybe ask to have a room on the 2nd floor.

This is a great hostel for meeting other people as there is a small communal kitchen where everyone gathers, cooks and chats about how hard it is to find a job in whistler!! A nice touch is the phone you can use for free to call locally when looking for apartments / jobs etc.
This is probably the best option if you are on a budget as there aren't too many other options.
The rooms are ok, pretty dingy but not the worst i have stayed in. Generally it's okay although i found the woman who ran it very rude, she could do with a few lessons in customer service!

This is a great place to stay in Whistler. It is near the main village with buses going every 15 minutes and just a 5 minute walk to the Creekside Gondola. The Hostel is full of friendly people with all the services you really need (storage space, bathrooms, kitchen, and good beds).

We stayed at one of the lodges, which was suprisingly cheap divided by 3 people for what we got. This was good if you are a family, ant privacy or if there are a lot of you and want to stay together. It was $500 for one week in the lodge and was $15 a night at the hostel. We stayed for one week and its great if you just want to stay in Whistler for a short time, but also really good if you are looking for a place for the season as the staff give you great advice on where to look and massively help out.

Couldn't recommend it enough!

Great lodge with super friendly and kind staff and a good atmosphere... Rooms aren't exactly 5 star hilton style but they are nice enough for the average traveller and besides you will spend most of your time upstairs in the kitchen (which has pretty much everything needed to cook a good meal and theft did not seem a problem while I was there with food) or on the slopes...Overall a great place to stay if ya on a budget but still want to be close to the slopes and shops etc..

  • Liked — Hangin out in the kitchen
  • Disliked — Sometimes overheated rooms (preference of other roommate)

This hostel was pretty much perfect. Clean and friendly. 2 minute walk to creekside Gondola and 30 second walk to bus transport to village. Had good heating and free internet! Full kitchen with all amenities. Rooms were warm with board/ski areas and dry racks. Room had bathroom and slept 4 people in bunks. Also they provided discounted lift tickets.
