Just wanted to reccommend a hostel to you. Now this is like the CHEAPEST hostel in Whistler. In the summer it was $100 for a week canadian dollars my friend.
There are plenty all around the same price but Southside Lodge in creekside try to be the cheapest. It's just a really chilled place run by a nice couple. All up for the partying though, no restrictions there, actually bought some nice herb off the man himself. So big reccomendation, I hear in the winter you have to be more careful with your stuff. There's a key to get into the lodge then one for each room. HAve to be careful, and they have small lockers, not that big though. Lots of locals know its a shabby place, but they've put in new showers, and really basic rooms REALLY basic, but damn cool stay. A little noisy as its opposite a gas station. Two minutes to the lake, buses every half an hour for $1.50 (loads of other hostels have like 6 buses a day and then you have to get a very expensive taxi). So yeah, for cheap cheap hostel go there, for a nice one go to like HI hostel, but it's relaly outta the way!!!
Thanks guys, happy travelling.
