HI-Whistler is a purpose-built, modern hostel with all the amenities you'd expect and more. This hostel is Whistler's biggest, offering budget accommodation in shared and private rooms in a brand new neighbourhood just minutes from the ski slopes.

The Whistler hostel offers: dorms with ensuite bathrooms, private ensuite rooms, family-friendly rooms , on-site café with outdoor patio, theatre-style meeting room (seats 60), TV lounge and large games room, self-catering kitchen with dining room, BBQ deck with mountain views, state-of-the-art ski/snowboard/bike storage and a fireplace.

Before the Whistler hostel opened on July 1, 2010, the hostel filled an important role as part of Whistler's athletes' village for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. The Village offers all the amenities of most large cities. It is linked by the Village Stroll, a pedestrian-only causeway that flows from Lorimer Road in the north to Skiers Plaza at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains.

I was not sure what hostel I was going to stay at. For many reasons I am glad I stayed at yours. The pictures on the site did not serve the actuality of the experience. I found the hostel to be situated in a beautiful location. That I might not have noticed if I had not stayed there. It enhanced my experience of Whistler independent of the other experiences. I found it very spacious, more than resonably clean and had a rugged terrain that was beautiful. I made a nice dinner in the kitchen that was spacious enough to negotiate. Beds comfortable heat a little too warm. Thank you
