#2 of 10 B&Bs / Inns in Roberts Creek
A scenic 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver, situated on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, Up The Creek Backpacker's Lodge is 14km from the ferry terminal at Langdale. It is a charismatic, family-run cedar house nestled amongst many large cedar and fir trees, and is an easy 10-minute walk to the "Heart of the Roberts Creek". The lodge includes a guest kitchen, large sun-deck with hammocks and barbecue, friendly common areas, free loaner bikes, boardgames, and a resource library and book swap. You will have the choice to stay in our 7 bed-dorm Arbutus, or in one of our 3 private rooms: the Fir room (up to 4 people), the Cedar room (up to 5 people), and our lovely Cherry Cabin situated in our garden (up to 2 people). We are the only hostel situated on the lower Sunshine Coast - and you can stay with us from only $28 per night! So come and enjoy a rest in the Creek, but be aware, you'll want to stay longer!

I had a wonderful time staying at Up the Creek. It’s located in a beautiful, quiet spot, surrounded by trees and not too far from the ocean. The house and dorm room was extremely clean and well-maintained. Martin, the owner, was friendly and welcoming. I decided to extend my stay because I liked it there so much. I will definitely be back!

The friendly managers Frank and Jessy at Up The Creek made sure that this wonderful B&B lived up to its name - everyone recommended them and we were not disappointed! Clean, comfortable and cosy, It was not only the perfect place for my band to rest after a late night out, but also the perfect place for my senior parents to rest and have a great time. I’ll definitely stay here when I’m back in town, alone or otherwise! Stay awesome. 😎👍🏼
