This hostel is just outside whistler village which is ok as busses run in and out of the village quite regularly. That's about the only good thing about this hostel. There is no reception, when you need to check in/check out you must call a member of staff (as far as I could tell there was only one). My dorm was disgusting (4 bed male), full of rubbish, the floor had obviously not been hovered in weeks and there was even broken glass in spots on the ground. Don't stay here.
The shower and the bathroom were really quite disgusting but the rooms were nice and the hostel has a cosy, eclectic feel. Also, it would be good to have someone stationed in the office during the day. This was the first hostel I've stayed where there was often no member of staff available during peak hours, and several guests commented on the inconvenience.
A good base for winter skiers just a stones throw from the slopes but a 45 minutes walk to the town centre
