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*

Hey smirnoff, to the family!

I have never stayed a either of these places, but Whistler is at the high end when it comes to places to stay, I think you will do well with either location.

As for security, again Whistler, I would not worry about peeps popping of shots or any thing


Ohhhh, your gonna ove BC!!!!!!!

$100 a week in Whistler?!?!

Jesus, jesus....the hotels in Whistler don't start till like $100 a night!

Like CD said, I wouldn't worry about people stealing, but as always be careful with your stuff. Whistler is fairly laid back, everyone is there to snowboard/bike or smoke pot.
