Security, Service, Support, and a wild dose of, "Hey Enjoy," made this stay Uncommonly delicious! The ease of on-line reservations with friendly front desk assistance kicked this travel option off with great expectations. Security is key here and each of our party was given access cards which we used to navigate various points of entry. The Pad is centrally located... More

Absolutely impressed with the Crash Pad, hands down one of the nicest hostels I've had the pleasure of staying in. It's beautifully constructed, has free parking, and located next to a delicious restaurant. Staff were exceptional. Security was good. They provided linens, towels, toilettes to buy in case you forgot anything, and a yummy breakfast. Everything was clean and beautiful!... More

My husband had stayed here before and loved it. But honestly, he can sleep on the trail with a rock for a pillow and feel 5⭐ so, really, how could I trust him?! We were heading down to Chattanooga to visit UTC and spend the night. He talked me into The Crash Pad because a) it was only one night... More

We stayed here back on 9/21/14 while visiting Chattanooga. I must say, I have stayed in many hostels in the US, and this one is by far the cleanest and classiest I've ever experienced. We had a great nights rest in the super soft and extremely clean beds, and the staff were excellent - very friendly and knowledgeable about the... More

This is a great place to stay and hook-up with folk from all-over who are into the outdoors. We found it a little difficult to find, so make sure you get good directions. We were slightly concerned - from the photos and videos on the website - that we might be a considerably older than the other guests (we're in... More

You may never leave, everything you need for an outdoorsy experience is right there. Cool upper bunks 2A, 2B, stunning firepit, flying squirrel bar next door, and craft beer in the afternoons. Love these guys and their atmosphere. Bike share fleet is right out front, so roll in, park, and bike the rest of the time.

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
