Whistler Hostel

Hostel Whistler

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

If your group is after adrenaline highs then Whistler is your heaven! From skiing, boarding, mountain biking and bungee jumping to ziplining, whitewater rafting, snowmobiling and ATVing, Whistler has got it all.

Opened in July 2010, the HI-Whistler hostel is a purpose-built hostel which was originally used as part of the Whistler Athletes' Village during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. This brand new facility sets the standard in hostelling with all the amenities you'd expect and then some.

There's more to HI-Whistler than just a place to sleep. Grab a coffee, a snack, a meal and a beer or wine at Cheaky's Café in the hostel lobby. Lounge on the outdoor decks with mountain views, store your bike, skis, and boards in the equipment storage room, hang out in the media room with its 52" HDTV or meet some new friends over a free game of pool in the games room.

Even if you’re not planning to visit in the winter to take advantage of the amazing snow sports, then there’s an action-packed diary full of events in the summer months as well. Get on the world famous Peak to Peak gondola or pull on your boots and try one of the many hikes accessible for Whistler Mountain, (look out for bears – yes they do live in Whistler). Canoes or jeeps are other different ways to explore Whistler's wilderness in the summer. There is also a lot to do without spending much. Pack up a lunch bag and head to one of the parks or beaches around town to soak up some sun, or check out some of the free outdoor concerts that are put on weekly. And of course, don’t forget Whistler Bike Park and Crankworx.

So don’t just think about Whistler in the winter for your group, why not make an enquiry now?
