This bad boy is located about 25-minutes’ bus ride from the village, which is the only real negative, apart from its non-hobo friendly prices. There are regular buses that conveniently operate until 2:30 am, however they charge $2.50 each way. On the positive side, it’s close to beautiful hikes, has ski and snowboard storage, a cheap café, a huge kitchen with a decent section for “shared food”, a movie room, pool table, laundromat, friendly and helpful staff and the best guests you will ever meet. The dorms are like hotel rooms and the beds are a little too comfy if you want to get up and seize the day. Depending on what time of year you visit Whistler, the majority of peeps staying at the hostel will be young, active, broke and ready to party. Oh, and Australian.
