Welcome to our hostel

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.

Die quietschenden Betten waren etwas nervig und haben öfters andere Mitbewohner gestört. Sehr schönes Hostel mit viel Platz in Küche und Aufenthaltsraum. Gerne wieder, doch die Lage ist ohne Auto etwas umständlich.

There is honestly nothing but rave reviews for this place. My friend and I visited Whistler for the first time and had a blast staying at the Hi Whistler. We met some awesome people and were very comfortable. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting the area and am hoping to return!
