Good staff, clean kitchen, lots of parking. Elevator makes scary noises.

Was greeted by very friendly, informative staff. Exceptionally clean facilities. I was most impressed by the features attributed in the details. Every bunk has its own personal outlet, night lamp, and mini shelf: making the room cleaner, and your own belongings more organized. there was plenty of social space that was kept immaculate, and had a cool, yet modern design. Honestly, it felt like staying in a motel with friends, I was incredible impressed, and will absolutely recommend it!

Clean and modern hostel, but it is hobbled by its location well outside the centre. Buses are available though, though it adds an extra element of expense and planning to grocery trips. It does have awesome common room and kitchen facilities, and it is convenient to trail heads for the Whistler Interpretive Forest, so it did prove to be a great stay despite the downsides.


Why do the HI hostels always vaccum/hoover in the mornings!! Computers are waaay overpriced, $6/hour, go to the library in town of you need, bus ticket only $5. No free breakfast :-(


Was worried about the location being far from Whistler village, but the public bus picks you up right outside the hostel! It is cheap and operates until 3am on weekends. Perfect for budgetary needs. Only stayed 1 night, but everything else about the hostel seemed awesome! RECOMMENDED

10 minute car ride to whistler, one of the cleanest hostels i've ever stayed in. Very low key. I stayed here to go to the mountain bike park. Wasn't quite the location i was looking for, nor the atmosphere but luckily the mountain bike park was amazing. All in all was a great time and very beautiful in Whistler.


I have stayed at this hostel a couple of times on little trips from Vancouver On my most recent visit I went on the Friday night pub crawl with a friend. The pub crawl was amazing. It was free, organized by a really high energy and fun guy and I met a ton of neat people. Do it.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I'll make sure Ryan, our pub crawl host, gets the pat on the back he deserves! Hope to see you in Whistler again soon. Kind Regards, Shaun Freeman - General Manager.
