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...

Thanks for your review Brian. We're glad you enjoyed staying with us, with all that snow sounds like everyone had their priorities straight...Nothing wrong with a couple casuals, but we definitely encourage people who want to party to get after it in the village, grab a slice at Avalanche Pizza and creep back like a ninja! Hope to see you...

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.

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

“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.”
