We booked this hostel 4 months in advance which apeared to be smart. All the time it was fully booked. Together with my boyfriend we went a coed room of 4 while that was much cheaper and it was nice. A 'privat' bathroom for 2 rooms. It was mostly clean enough. Just had to get new toilet paper 4 times...

The Service here has been absolute terrible during my stay. Once I arrived in Whistler I suffered an allergic reaction and went into anaphylactic shock. Instead of having assistance, I was told to get in a cab. I ended up in Hospital at 2am and then came back to the hostel once I was cleared. The allergic reaction then became...

In the event of a medical emergency, our staff are trained to call 911 and ask for an ambulance to transport a guest that requires immediate care. Our night supervisor offered to do so and...

I stayed in a private room, 311, which is next to the stairwell. It was very noisy as people were running up and down the stairs late into the evening and again early morning. I have stayed here before in other private rooms which were away from the stairwell and noise was not an issue. The room was hot and...

Hello Julia, Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations this time around. Cleanliness is a top priority of ours and we are generally known for such, but it sounds like we missed our mark for your stay. I have spoken to the team and we will use your feedback to instill...

Although the hostel is new and modern, the heating wasn't that warm and the showers on the 4th floor were not hot. The stairs were not vaccuumed regularily, and there was lots of hair stuck to my bedding. There were no dish brushes in the kitchen and it wasn't kept as clean as other hostels I've stayed in. The reception...

ARRIVING FROM VANCOUVER - If you're in Vancouver, and heading to Whistler there are daily Greyhound buses that will take you there. Price is approximately $15 one-way. TIP: Use your HI-Discount if you have one for the bus trip! There are two stops in Whistler -- Whistler Creekside is closer to the hostel so get off one that one. From...

I needed a one night stay at Whistler for the long weekend and the HIWhistler was one of the few that still offered rooms I had the single room and it's been nice and quiet and great views. The breakfast at the cafe in the lobby is great and I really enjoyed my time there

We've never been in that type of accommodation yet. We were surprised during our dinner and breakfast time. All these people whose were prepared all their meal, like some community. It was interesting experience. And sharing fridge? Crazy, I was surprised that our breakfast was still there - unstolen :-).

It is a little out of the way from Whistler Village itself and not really in walking distance to any places to eat (apart from the cafe downstairs which is really good for breakfast). Bus stop right outside which goes into the Village however. In a very new suburb in town, new houses everywhere and although we stayed in a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Opened in July 2010, the HI-Whistler is a purpose-built hostel that was originally used as part of the Whistler Athletes' Village during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. This brand new facility sets the standard in hostelling with all the amenities you'd expect and then some.There's more to HI-Whistler than just a place to sleep. Grab a coffee and snack at Cheaky's Cafe in the hostel lobby, lounge on the outdoor decks with mountain views, store your bike, skis, and boards in the equipment storage room, hang out in the media room with its 52" HDTV and meet some cool new folks over a free game of pool or foosball in the games room. ... more   less
