Groups Information

I loved HI Whistler! This was my first experience ever with a hostel and it was a great introduction! In fact, I have only been using hostels ever since I stayed at this place.....

Julia Mosqueda

Best Deal in Whistler. My husband and I stayed in one of the private rooms with its own bathroom. Very spacious - more than many hotels. Clean, quiet, bright and beautiful view of the mountains. Staff was very accommodating. Would definitely recommend this.

Susan C

One of the best hostels I've visited. This hostel is great for so many reasons. It's more like a hotel (clean and modern) with hostel vibe (friendly and social)... Staff are amazing. It's a winner.


Turned my view of a hostel on its head! Great staff. Great space. Great experience!

Janine Jelezarov

Clean, comfortable, well priced. This is more like a hotel than a hostel. I'm a solo female traveler and this is my first trip travelling alone, and my first stay in a shared dorm of a hostel. I was really pleased!


Cheaky's Cafe

Grab a coffee, a snack, a meal and a beer or wine at Cheaky's Café in the hostel's lobby.
