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.
This hostel is way too far from the village!
