The Whistler Lodge is a 42 bed backpacker's hostel, centrally located just 3km south of Whistler Village and 1km north of Whistler Creekside. Our historic lodge was built in 1965 by students from UBC's Varsity Outdoor Club and until recently, was operated by the Alma Mater Society of UBC. Now under new ownership & management, we offer bunks in dorm style rooms as well as private and semi private rooms. If you are looking for an authentic Whistler experience, come stay with us!

Beds are awesome, staff and work for stay people are the most warm and welcoming ever, and they go above and beyond to make your stay extra special. You’ll never feel more at home than in this hostel. I recommend to anyone that is traveling solo and wants to make new friends and meet great people. And… I’ll be back!

Very nice, cottage like hostel. The common area is really cool, and also the beds are hidden with the curtains. ANd the people are very nice, i got the feeling most of them live there, but they are very open to meet you. I don't know how is in the winter season though, but for the summer definietly reccomend.

Having done my research I felt Whistler lodge was the place my 18 year old daughter would feel the most at home and hopefully cared for. Having booked the hostel I realised with only a few days to go to departure that it was a 19 year old minimum stay. I contacted the hotel feeling I'd really crewed up but was quickly put at ease. Having spoken to the manager Kylie who was amazing and said my daughter would be more than welcome and 19 was because of alcohol restrictions. I had numerous email communications with them and every member of staff were quick to respond and extremely so friendly. My daughter's time was running out where she had nowhere to stay and the staff even went to the extent of emailing me to let me know they had sorted her out for a few more weeks. My daughter has had the most amazing stay, she says the place has a lovely family feel about it, big cosy communal areas where everyone watches movies and great location. She said the staff are wonderful and everyone is so friendly. From a parents view from over 4,000 miles way Whistler Lodge couldn't have made me feel more relaxed about my daughter being looked after and well. Thanks you so much....... Darren

Thank you so much for your review and kind words Darren. While we rarely bend on our 19+ policy, after much discussion with you and Amelie prior to booking we knew that she would be an awesome guest- and she has definitely proven us right! We hope to welcome you and the rest of your family to the Lodge one day :)

We stayed at the private room. The hostel is well maintained and the stuff is very nice. Everything is clean and the kitchen offers everythink one might need for cooking some food. Good option for a budget stay in Whistler.

This place honestly feels like a home rather than a hostel. The staff here are SO friendly and helpful. The common area is always lively with people kicking about but there are also heaps of spaces where you can go and chill out if you're not feeling so social. The cleanliness of the hostel is also unreal with the staff doing a fantastic job in keeping the kitchen and common areas clean. Have stayed in few hostels in my time and this is by far the best one.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review PeggyL! Unfortunately I think you may have us mistaken for a hotel located in Whistler Village- the Crystal Lodge. Another great place to stay in Whistler and the Old Spaghetti Factory is very good indeed.

If I could I would give this place unlimited stars! The staff is super nice and easygoing, as are all the people who stay there. It feels more like a home than a hostel, super clean and bright with loads of stuff to do and always cool people to meet. I stayed here for 3 weeks while searching for permanent accommodation in Whistler and honestly I didn’t want to leave even when I found a apartment. I will definitely be back in the future :)

Absolutely my favorite place to stay. Friends, family and my home away from home 😁. Always meet new people who I see again on my subsequent visits. The staff is consistent and doesn't have a high turn around which is really really nice. Looking forward to a summer visit for mountain biking.
