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.

Kitchen was massive & open 24 hours, the staff were always ready to help and very friendly/informative. The hostel is in a great location, Nordic Dr being in between village & Creekside; 6 minute walk to bus stop with buses heading both ways often.

The whole lodge had a pretty cozy and warm atmosphere especially in the evenings when everyone is back from skiing. Dorms are pretty spartan and functional but comfortable, loved the soft and fluffy duvets and beddings. Not to mention the sauna and hot tub was an added bonus! All in all, a great value for money considering Whistler isn't the...

I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly from the moment that I arrived. The storage facilities were well thought out. The showers were not just warm but HOT. The bedding was clean and comfortable. I found the cabin as a whole was cozy and the atmosphere was friendly relaxed and homey.

Stayed for 4 nights and snowboarded while I was there. The lodge was warm and welcoming, with great people and helpful staff. Couldn't believe what was available, Sauna, hot tub, billiards table. Common area and Kitchen were very open and clean. I will definitely be going back again

Fantastic spot for those who want to come to Whistler to ski/snowboard. Highly recommend. Great value. Hot tub, sauna, new bathrooms, all very clean. Comfy warm duvets, and great cooking area with tons of pots/pans/etc. Whoever started this hostel has clearly travelled/stayed in many hostels, as it well set up

Forget whatever you think you know about hostels, this place is incredible, Clean, tidy, friendly and with better amenities than most hotels. The atmosphere in the common room is always enjoyable and being able to have a hot tub and sauna at the end of the day is soo nice. You will have a good time here guaranteed.

10/10 would stay again. Try the sauna, it's magical. Oh, also, Carl is nice, it's very easy to beat him in a board game. He also did his best helping me when I fell on one of their bikes, somebody should give this man a medal! No seriously, I'd come back. Probably the best hostel in Whistler!

Probably the best hostel that i have stayed in. It is more like a hotel than a hostel with a huge balcony along the side and a hot tub in the grounds. The location is a bit out of town but its easy to get to the centre on a bus and there is a supermarket 10 mins walk away....

“If you're in a couple get a 2-bed dorm as you have the 'alcove' to yourself so you don't have to lock your bags away if you don't want to.”
