If you don't expect much more than a cheap bed close to the chairlift, then this place is for you. Location wise, a great budget option as it is a short walk from the creekside Gondola and supermarket. The bathrooms are in disrepair and need attention, and everything inside the dorm is old, but the bed was comfortable and thats...

Pretty chill hostel,reasonable price, Creekside location has everything the average traveller needs. Rooms have TV, fridge and bathroom. Solid kitchen in the upstairs and the owner, Max, is a solid character, happy to help out in any situation. 5/5, would stay again.

I really loved to stay here for three reasons: The location, restaurant downstairs and the cozy rooms. The female room is a 4dorm bed, the window faces the creekside and gas station. It is about 30CAD per night per person. Beds are comfortable and clean. The rest of the room is okay, included the bathroom. I would come back here...

Great location. For Monthly rents ask for the Creekside House. A home away from home to enjoy a perfect vacation with friends. It is a safe place where the staff is always there for you to make sure you have the best experience while in Whistler.

This place COULD be so good, but needs an overhaul. Key issues: • The bunk beds need to be replaced with heaver duty ones - that don't move or squeak and keep everyone awake. A guy in my room (6) pulled his mattress off the bed and slept on the floor because it kept people in other rooms awake. •...

Southside is in a really good spot. 5 minute walk from the lifts, a Husky for late night drunk snacks across the road, a gym, a few good restaurants and a supermarket within 3 minutes, and right on top of ridiculously good food. Can honestly say that leaving was a very sad day. With no common area except the small...

Southside is the best located out of all the Whistler hostels with less than a 5 minute walk to Creekside gondola. The rooms are nice, it only lacks big communal areas. The staff are friendly... and Andre is The Man!

We were desperate for last minute accomodation while my son was a ski instructor at Whistler. I can't commend staff member Maxwell enough. He was truly helpful and went out of his way to accomodate my son while he was there. Such a kind, nice person. My son reported that the lodge was great and would definately stay there again....

I was a temporary ski instructor there just for a week. Maxwell and Andre (the managers) were unbelievably helpful in getting things organised. The lodge has relatively small rooms for 4 bunked people but it will work if you make it. It sits on top of southside diner (which has great food) and gives lodge residents a discounted meal (15%)....
