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.
What travellers think
The paper towels ran out in the shared wash basin area. This place needs more frequent cleaning up. Lots of toiletries left inside shower-room. I cleared it myself for the benefit of others.

There was a lot of confusion with the assigning of beds in our room - which doesn't really seem like it should be a big deal but the 2 other women in our room told us that they had switched their bed numbers at the front desk and that we were assigned the wrong ones etc and it initially caused an awkward first encounter situation with the roomies
