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.

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

Trotz Buchung 2 Monate im Voraus, war es nicht möglich, dass mein Freund und ich in einem Zimmer schlafen konnten. Auf Nachfrage hat man uns erzählt, dass das eine Bett, welches bei unserer Anreise in dem Zimmer meines Freundes noch frei war, für die nächsten 2 Wochen gebucht ist und sie nicht möchten, dass dieser Gast das Zimmer während seines Aufenthalts wechseln muss. Leider hat sich dann herausgestellt, dass wir angelogen wurden. Die Bettnachbarn haben gewechselt.
