Hostel Whistler

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Opened in July 2010, the HI-Whistler hostel 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.

Canada's west coast playground and home of Whistler's best rated hostel, if you love adrenaline highs, Whistler is the place for you! From skiing, boarding, mountain biking and bungee jumping to zip lining, white water rafting, snowmobiling and ATVing, Whistler has got it all.

There's more to HI-Whistler than just a place to bed down for the night. Grab a coffee, a snack, a meal and a beer or wine glass at Cheaky's Café 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 in the games room.

The hostel was clean and the staff was great! The hostel is a 20 minutes bus ride from the slopes. So, as long as you don't mind the bus ride, I highly recommend staying here!

During peak season, it would be great to have additional front desk staff as there is a long wait. Tho it was understandable, I found it very difficult that we had to check in and check out each day and move rooms, because it was not possible to accommodate our party of 2. Would be good if we can skip the check-in and check out procedure daily

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.
