The next morning Martin drove about 8 of us to the race start line and made sure we were all sorted out to run. Cannot wait... More

The amenities were clean, the guest kitchen well stocked, the atmosphere was peaceful, and the beach was but a short walk away. Four members of our party were repeat customers at Up... More

We had a large group stay for 5 nights and had an amazing experience from start to finish. Martin is more than accommodating and has great knowledge of the surrounding area. From kids to adults this hostel truly has something for everyone.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left our accommodations were simply superb. Martin was a wonderful host and went... More

The deal was we work 3 hours a day each (typically 10-1) for 5 days a week doing very easy tasks such as laundry, cleaning and general maintenance, let me tell you... what a deal!!! An absolutely stunning place Martin has on the... More

Part of a large group in town for a wedding! Great hostel, really sweet owner and staff. Lots of hammocks outside! Top notch deck. Clear and easy to follow rules. Short walk to town and the beach. Would come again. Thanks Martin!

We were a group of 7 visiting Sunshine Coast and stayed at Up the Creek. This was the best backpackers hostel I have been so far. Perfectly located with all the amenities for a comfortable stay. The owner Martin was most friendly and very welcoming. He made us feel just at home. I would recommend anyone and everyone to stay... More

Awesome location,, i was amazed to discover the sunshine coast: go outside the main highway that bring u from Banff to Tofino everyone.... So that said, on the Sunshine Coast I was even more amazed to discover Roberts Creek which is a little paradise community well connected to the nature.... And the Backpacker Hostel Up the creek is just fitting... More
