Loved Southside Lodge! Everyone was so friendly, Max and Ollie were both great. Max even lent his gear to my friend who's bags were left in another country. The rooms were a great size and I liked the fact that there were few guests compared to other larger type hostels, it means that everyone knows each other by name and it's very easy to make friends. Southside Diner is my favourite place! Would definitely recommend Southside Lodge to friends and ill stay again the next time I visit Whistler.


Not the cleanest or best fitted out hostel Ive stayed in by a long way. However what it lacks in luxury and facilities it makes up for in location, atmosphere and value for money. If you don't mind staying somewhere that is a bit rough around the edges, Southside offers a great, cheap option right at the base of the Creekside gondola. The buses to the village are very frequent and easy which makes the fact that you are not actually in the village not much of an issue. I met some great people too


Dope place to stay awsome staff, would stay there again for sure

Hostel was exactly as expected, plenty of space and clean! Only problem was that I had to wait 45 minutes to check in, which was frustrating.
