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.

Best hostel I have stayed at in a long time.

My favorite HI.The dorms are well planned out so that 2 4-bed rooms share a massive double basin/mirror space, separate shower and separate toilet. Each set of bunks is separated by 4 giant lockers (with their own cable outlets that allow you to charge electronics securely using the power socket next to your bed). Common lounge, pool table and TV room are fairly social. Only downfall was the lack of bowls and cooking utensil in the kitchen which made cooking and eating near impossible at times.

This was more like a hotel than a hostel. Everything was so new and so clean. The beds were lovely and comfy and better than the creaky metal bunk beds you get in most hostels. Only a couple of things I would say could be better, it would be nice to get breakfast included and for the wifi to work in all rooms. I loved my stay here and would definitely recommend.

Had an amazing time at HI Whistler. It is more like a hotel than a hostel. The dorm was 4 beds everyone was great. Spent one night in the dorm by myself. Kitchen facilities were brilliant. There is a little bar/cafe downstairs and a balcony looks out from the common area. Only downside is the distance from the village but the bus is very easy and passes are cheap at front desk.

The view of the surrounding mountains is spectacular. which totally makes up for the suboptimal public transportation in Whistler. The only downside is that breakfast is not included, so your travel dollar does not stretch as far as in other hostels.

Clean, modern hostel with modern facilities and great staff. Only real downside is the location - at the furthest point on the bus route from Whistler village (30 mins 1 way) with no stores, restaurants or bars nearby. That said, you probably won't find anywhere cheaper in Whistler area.

The HI Whistler is a cool hostel..more like a hotel if the truth be known. Up sides: huge well equipped kitchen and dining area, great TV area, pool table, cafe, down sides : bit far outta town (7km), no breakfast provided (like most other hostels in canada) and for me personally I found the crowd there had a well defined cliche, probably due to a lot of travellers using it for living purposes and not travelling.
