Chalk one up for the backpacking scene in British Columbia, Hostelling International has unveiled yet another hostel in Canada, this time boasting a 188 bed hostel in Whistler, B.C.
This four storey hostel
is found in the new Cheakamus Crossing subdivision, that was originally set out for athletes housing during the Winter Games. The 188 beds are spread across over 40 four-person shared rooms, private ensuite rooms, and family rooms. It includes the much-loved self-catering kitchen, along with dining room, tv lounge, games room, state of the art ski, snowboard, and bike storage, outdoor decks along with everybody’s fave, the BBQs. The folks at H.I topped it all off with an on-site cafe and an outdoor patio (with sprawling mountain views) along with free Wifi for us traveling geeks!
The New HI-Whistler Hostel opens July 1st, so book soon to beat the summer rush! Shared rooms start at $30, and private rooms at $99.
