Hostel International (HI) Whistler is very modern and clean. The hostel itself is located out of Whistler Village (about 8km). There is a local bus, but it’s definitely easier if you drive and having a car. There are some great hiking trails nearby, as well as the Whistler Brewing Co (local brewery), which is worth checking out.
The hostel offers both dorm and private rooms with ensuite. The rates change throughout the year, depending on the high and low season. The ski season is definitely the most expensive time to visit Whistler.
The hostel is a great place to meet people, with people staying there of all ages and backgrounds. There are laundry facilities, communal kitchen, dining room, TV room, games room, with pool table, cafe, tourist information and BBQ area, as well as free parking.
One great thing about staying at Hostel International (HI) hostels, you can also expect a hostel of a high standard, with great facilities and amenities and plenty of tourist information. HI Whistler, was no different. If you plan on staying at a lot of hostels, or HI hostels, it is definitely worth investing in the HI membership, as it saves you 5%, as well as 25% on Greyhound buses in Canada, and a few other discounts.
If you don’t mind being outside of Whistler Village, then it’s a great place to stay.
Huge, fully equipped, communal kitchen, with lots of fridge space.
Free parking! Unheard of in Whistler – most places charge $20-30 a night for parking.
Super modern, which means everything is in working condition and clean.
No quiet time as people were making a lot of noise into the early morning.
The beds were uncomfortable. Not great if you have any back problems.
The WiFi was not the best. Constantly, being kicked off the network and having to rejoin.
Located outside of the village. Not recommend unless you do have a car.
Beds from CAD 30.00
