A new building (2011) in a great location on the south edge of downtown. Offers individual beds in a bunk room or private rooms with queen bed and a sink. Full shared baths (gender separated) are down the hall. Has a shared kitchen area where you can keep food and eat as well as a seating area and computers. You can also do your laundry for a fee.
There are a few things you might want to be aware of before booking.You can't bring any of your own bedding into the sleeping areas (ie. no pillows,sleeping bags, cots, etc.).You can't have any food in the sleeping areas other than bottled water. Sleeping areas are all open or connected to each other, so noise might be a problem on a busy night. Check-in hours start late in the afternoon, and it seems there is not anyone there to let you in if you arrive early. They are listed as accessible accommodations, but I noticed the security access pads are high mounted and most of the shelving and kitchen are also a high.
Overall, I had a pleasant stay at the Crash Pad and would recommend it if you're looking for a simple, affordable place near downtown and still close to the outdoors.
