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.

Heating was way too high and the wifi was terrible. But it's a fun hostel and right beat the bus stop into town

Location: The house is great! Just far away from the village.. Environnement...In some rooms are the lights always on (Kitchen). Double glass windows would probably save energy in winter. Some space to hang up wet laundry instead of dryers would do it, too.
