Having stayed in various HI hostels across Canada, I had high hopes for this one given my past experience and the fact it was part of the Olympic village. Check-in went fine, private room was nice enough, but that's where the good points end. The kitchen was filthy and I had to scrub everything I needed before I'd even consider...

Hello Craig, It’s regretful to hear you had an unpleasant experience with us. In regards to the kitchen, we normally clean the kitchen four times a day, which can be tight for our team with all the other cleaning tasks in a day. Unfortunately, there could be times in between when a mess is made. Although, this might not be...

My cousin and I came to Whistler for a fun outdoor vacation, and this was absolutely the perfect place to stay. The location, community kitchen, outdoor patios and living areas are great. Plus the customer service is excellent- everyone has been super friendly and helpful, especially Marie-Laure and "J" who have gone above and beyond in helping us to get...

Really enjoyed my stay here. The hostel is relatively new and it's kept very clean. For guests relying on public transport there are frequent buses that run to and from the different villages. Lots of nice bushwalking opportunities nearby too. Wi-Fi was a bit patchy, but most people seemed figure out the signal was best near the 24/7 reception. If...

I have been travelling for over 30 years ,and this is the best hostel I've ever stayed in, as far as facilities are concerned. It's a "no brainer" to stay here, A great bus service into town ,seemed like there was a bus outside always. I believe this was part of the Olympic village,well it's won a gold medal!

The hostel itself is nice but we had a big issue while we were there. Around check-out time in our female dorm the guy who was cleaning our bathroom stayed in our toilet for 45 Minutes so we could not use it. Aso i think is not acceptable for someone from housekeepig to stay in guests toilets for 45 minutes....

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. This behaviour is definitely not acceptable and we will do everything to make sure it does not happen again. We have a strong housekeeping team and work really hard to make sure the hostel is always clean and provide our guests with a comfortable environment. We apologise for this unfortunate event...

This was my first hosteling experience. The location close to Whistler Blackcomb. The hostel has a nice lobby on the 2nd floor which was great for meeting fellow travelers and occasionally throwing a game of beer pong. The people are really chill. I stayed in a room with 4 beds - 2 bunks. It's a fairly large bed and comfortable...

I stayed here with a friend and we were surprised how nice it was for a hostel. I think they may have recently had a refurb. The rooms were lovely and clean and so were the washrooms and kitchen. Breakfast was not included in this hostel though, although it is in all of the other HI's I've stayed in. And...

We just spent two nights here in a private room and it was certainly very comfortable and good value for Whistler. Our only issues were with the internet which was intermittent and somewhat slow and with the heat as the place has in-floor heating which apparently takes quite a while for an adjustment to take effect so our first night...

First and foremost, the hotel is about 10km (7 miles) away from Whistler Village. Although it avails itself of a very good bus service, you might want to have a car to freely move yourself around the area, the sky resort or to Whistler for a drink or dinner, as the place where the hostel is located has very little...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Opened in July 2010, the HI-Whistler 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.There's more to HI-Whistler than just a place to sleep. Grab a coffee and snack at Cheaky's Cafe 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 or foosball in the games room. ... more   less
