This was my first time staying at a hostel and it definitely debunked all my horrifying visions. The staff were all great and everything was clean. The bedrooms dont have doors but each bed had its own privacy curtain which was great.

Without question the best hostel I've ever stayed at. The staff, from the manager Andrew, to reception staff Pamela, Carl and Kylie, as well the bed makers Leo and Will, and Joel, were all awesome and couldn't have been friendlier. It felt like a big home, warm and clean, with excellent kitchen facilities and allocated space for everyone in the...

Everything was really easy at the Whistler Lodge Hostel. Price was very reasonable, friendly and helpful staff, and clean bed/bathroom. The den was homey and comfortable, and right next to the kitchen. Locker space was more than enough, and lots of space to store gear. Quick bus ride to the Village, and if you'd rather walk you can take the...

Awesome hostel, best hostel I've stayed in, feels more like a house with the chilled out lounge and large kitchen. Really well laid out, the 'dorms' basically feel like open rooms and it's so easy to meet people or have privacy if you prefer with curtained beds. Top location, incredibly friendly staff, really clean and well maintained with great showers,...

My friend and I stayed in this hostel for 5 nights at the end of January and we're really happy with the place. The whole place feels fresh, spacious and clean whilst also being very comforting and warm. The beds are very tidy and much bigger than any other hostel single bed I've stayed in. All the facilities are great...

Such a welcoming and cosy hostel. Really well set out and excellent facilities. Pool table, sauna, hot tub, huge kitchen, comfortable couches, clean beds and bathrooms. Met some really lovely people here, especially the staff. Stayed here for 10 nights and I would 100% recommend.

Not usually the type to stay at a hostel, but with the prices in Whistler, this was our budget option. With the private room, my girlfriend and I were happy, comfortable, and constantly surprised. The lodge is VERY clean, the staff were beyond friendly and helpful, and the plethora of security cams in the common areas made me feel like...

As the other reviews state, this isn't your typical hostel. I found almost all of the guests staying there were serious skiers and boarders which meant no late night drunken loud parties. Even if there were, the beds are in a separate area so noise isn't an issue. Slept great each night and woke up early each day for the...

I just wanted to thank staff at Whistler Lodge Hostel for a memorable stay. Special thanks to staff Kylie and Joel it was 5 star service for the 11 nights there. The place was spotless. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Whistler.

It's a well organized & clean dorm style (primarily) lodging. Really good for staying for a ski trip while keeping the budget low. However, if you want the privacy and the quality of your sleep, this may or may not (depending on your roommates) be a good choice.

“If you need darkness to sleep, ask for a bottom bunk. If you want more space (like me) ask for a top bunk as the ceilings are high.”
