One of the best hostels I've stayed in I think, in terms of amenities and comfort and I've been staying in hostels for about 15 years. Great kitchen,I had the private room which was larger than most hotel rooms. Very clean. Helpful staff; however I think they turn over seasonally, so some know more than others. Location is 10 minutes by car from whistler village, buses run about every half hour. Location leaves a bit to be desired, but there seems to be growth nearby.

The hostel itself was awesome. The staff in general was very friendly and approachable. The front desk staff playing the guitar at midnight was really cool. However, the staff who worked on May 6th, around 3 pm, was a little rude regarding our request to access the storage room. If, like she said, she had worked at HI since last May, she should have known better how not to offend customers and always serve with a friendly attitude and patience. In addition, Cheaky's serves some delicious food.

Nice place and cheap, but very far from the village and (when I was there in March) it was dead quiet with no atmosphere! It seemed to be a place where those people working in Whistler stayed while looking for a room to rent. Internet disconnects frequently. No oven. No freezer. Small rooms (unless you get a private room, which is massive!)

The hostel was just way too far from the village and buses are expensive, usually HI hostels are with a better location. besides that the place was really nice, clean and warm. I love the detail of having a plug and a light per bunk.

I loved this hostel. The room was super clean and the beds, very confortable. This hostel is a bit far from Whistler Village, about 5 to 7 min by car.We had some trouble with the shower: the water was not that warm and was not evacuating well.

Clean and spacious, like a hotel room. Big kitchen. Breakfast not included. Atmosphere is slightly lacking. Far away from whistler village but easy enough to get to and from on the bus.

The perfect hostel but just too far from whistler village.

Extremely clean and upmarket hostel - much more like a hotel than a hostel. Large social area on the 2nd floor, including kitchen, dining room and laundry services. Location is based in one of the furthest sub-divisions from Whistler village, however bus journey takes 15-20 mins and buses come pretty regularly.

Not great, not bad. Just a basic hotel. Bed was comfy and rooms were clean. Lacking in atmosphere. Staff were ok, but not overly friendly or helpful.

This place was ok, their wifi was unusable and the computer at the hostel was $6/hr. Nothing nearby, so need to travel to do anything which will be at least a half hour bus ride. Big common area and kitchen

Great hostel! A little expensive but that is understandable considering it's whistler. There was a common room but it was a little difficult to find a place to meet and congregate.
