Had a great time on a non-busy Thursday evening. Staff was helpful and friendly and the place was very clean. It's in an up-and-coming area of Chattanooga with plenty of restaurants close by. Public bicycles for daily rental ($6.00) are a block away, but downtown is only 1-1.5 miles, so can be walked in 20-40 minutes. A free shuttle is... More

Planning a long distance driving trip to visit family I came across a review by a friend who had enjoyed a stay at Crash Pad and I thought it would be fun to try it. I was warmly greeted on arrival, given an orientation and went next door to the Crash Pad's wonderful restaurant, which was very open air with... More

Run by a group of enthusiastically happy young people, this is a great place to stay down town. Very basic, very economical and also very clean. Love the sustainability of the place. A lovely communal atmosphere. I stayed with two young children and felt very at home. Despite being next door to the lively bar, we slept like logs. Would... More

Stayed for a week at the Crash Pad. All staff was very friendly and helpful, always with a smile in their faces. The place was soooo clean. Clean linen and towels provided. Shared a bunk with a friend and made some new and lovely ones there, from different locations. Very secure and comfortable, the bathrooms were tidy. Closely located to... More

This is an awesome place to stay, I highly recommend it to anyone wishing for a festive and well cultured and comfortable place to relax and chill. Jordan and Corey are just awesome, the most friendly and curteous staff I have ever met, I look forward to going again. Jareth Brashear Kaehler

We loved staying at The Crash Pad. My husband and I booked the Chatt Room (private room with a queen bed, sink, couch, desk, desk chair and chest of drawers) for four nights (Sun-Wed). The hall bathrooms were very clean and plenty big, even with just two stalls, two sinks and two showers each. We never had to wait our... More

We were due to stay here for 2 nights but extended to 3 because we felt so at home here! The staff were great - Bethyn was so friendly and helpful, and all of the crash pad workers really could not do enough to help you out. We stayed in the mixed dorm, Beds were massive and the curtains across... More

We loved staying at the Crash Pad, the staff was so friendly, very clean, and well done. I will highly recommend this place to all. Lots to do in the area, went for a bike ride around the city in the morning. Good times!

I've stayed here twice. Amazing facilities and the loveliest staff at any place I've ever stayed (hotel, motel, hostel, etc). In some ways it's bare bones (it's a hostel, after all), but it's also state of the art. I'm constantly recommending this place. We aren't even climbers, but we still stay here every time. Plus, the other people who come... More

I was on a 4000 miles motorcycle trip and got rained on hard. Decided that camping wasn't happening and stayed here. The staff was courteous and friendly, the facilities were spotless, the beds private and comfortable. The bar next door was not a nuisance in the slightest and delivered us some truly delicious food inside of the crash pad. I... More
