The location of this hostel was fantastic. You can walk to the majority of interest points and best restaurants in Chattanooga. On top of that, it is only 1.5hrs from Falls Creek Falls State Park, TN. 3 hours from the Smoky Mountains. 20 minutes from Cloudland Canyon State Park, GA. And extremely close to Ruby Falls and Rock City. We...

Staying for two nights in the queen D, on the 2nd floor was the best! The room was clean, secure, and spacious, but also had a good view of the courtyard and Flying Squirrel Bar (also owned by Crash Pad) next door. The staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you, Drexel and Rachel :) Onsite parking was a very...

Good location, I came to visit friends in Chattanooga who couldn't have me stay at their place, so this was a great solution. I got a good night sleep. The other guests and the staff were friendly. The place was clean and nice. I could have wanted a bit more appetizing breakfast.

Beautifully designed hostel with everything a backpacker needs and then some. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Definitely expensive for a hostel but all facilities are of the highest quality. And Chattanooga is surprisingly cool. Excited to come back and stay again someday!

We stayed here in October. We had a large group and rented the entire place so it was just our group. The staff were fantastic-helpful and knowledgeable. It was clean and had everything we needed! It's convenient to everything and we walked most everywhere. We drove to Signal Mtn and Lookout Mtn to hike and it is a short drive....

So this was our first visit to a hostel. We stayed in one of their semi private rooms. Best sleep ever declared my husband, who was extremely skeptical when I told him where we were staying. I'm not sure the other guests felt that way when he started to snore! The rooms are very clean as are the bathrooms. The...

This is the cleanest, nicest hostel I have ever stayed in. Beds are super comfy. They have beer for sale in the lobby. Provide eggs and toast and coffee for breakfast. They are also more than happy to assist in planning any outdoor adventure. I would stay here again. Wish there were more hostels like this.

This is a brilliant hostel. Bunks have a modicum of privacy with the wraparound curtain. Kitchen is well stocked, good fresh coffee is always available. Typical hostel breakfast. Nice bars in the area, knowledgeable staff able to recommend places to you. Parking nearby. A lovely chilled out fire pit outside, where you can read and enjoy the ambience.
