Hey hey guys,
Travelling over from london england, to b.c. I'm deciding betwen staying in the southside hostel in whistler creekside for a week and the hi hostel in alta lake. I'm pretty much sure on the southsid hostel, as this nice hi hostel is SO outta the way in alta lake byt he time i miss the bus at 5:30pm i'll pay for a night in bloody taxi fare. I hear this bus goes only like 5 times a day, just to let anyone know for the Hi hostel in whistler..nice but OUTTA THE WAY.
so questions for you all. has anyone stayed in the southside hostel in whistler creekside, i'd really love some feedback. im there from july 8th. what's security like, location yada yada. i know creekside, but yeah would love some feedback before I book.
Thanks a lot, wish you well on all your travels.
Emily*

Sorry, I'm not much help with the hostels in Whistler.

but you're right Alta lake is out of the way, especially if you are planning to bus back and forth every day.

Speaking of hostels in Whistler - would it be reasonable to stay at one during a snowboarding trip during the winter? (Lugging along the gear and all, location to the mountain...)

hey omisan,
most definately. buses run as regular as shit in the winter. get to creekside and although a bit outta the way in terms of whistler village, creekside gondola gets u up on the mountain. so you're looking at southside lodge, fireside, etc. all creekside ones. shoestring lodge a good un too.

check out hostels reccomended (cant spell). southside was very basic, and safety can be an issue with your stuff in the winter when its really busy. but it was great.
