Whistler Hostel

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.

Hostel in hi level, looks and feels like hotel. Only 4 people in a room, which is not a lot for a hostel. The whole place is new and very recommend.

Really enjoyed my stay at the Whistler hostel. I even extended my stay by another day just to stay and smell the fresh trees and water.

We were at the hostel during a low activity time on the ski hill so I expect that the hostel is much more animated and full service in mid season.

Thanks for you review and feedback. We try our best to continue running hostel activities all year long no matter what season. But yes, it can be tough to get the same participation numbers during our shoulder season. Our team works hard to rally people to take part, so next time, maybe we can get your help? Just kidding ;) Hope to host you again in the future! Ryan, GM

Our group of three got split up into different rooms because the booking was made weirdly. This was the only disappointment of our stay.
