Amazing experience. I highly recommend this as an eclectic and exceptional place to stay. Delicious breads, jams, eggs, and more is included and the atmosphere and proximity is hard to beat. I especially liked how close it was to the transit and the Flying Squirrel. I will stay again!

I knew going in that the Crash Pad was going to be a little different, but I didn't expect that I would love it so much. The staff is super friendly and quickly gave me a tour of the place, then directed me next door, where I could get a nice glass of wine after my 500 mile drive. It...

I really like hostels and I generally find that I enjoy every hostel I stay at. Not because every hostel has nice cozy beds, tasty breakfast, and a hodgepodge of other amenities but because most hostels have great character and seem to have a real spirit that's reflective of the traveling humans and the local hostelites. Anyway, the crash pad...

My husband and I stayed in a private room, and the three teens in our group had bunks. Everything was clean and comfortable (except the shower curtain in the women's shower needed changing or cleaning.) The outdoor space is great, and the worker at the front desk set up corn hole game for us and lit the firepit. Both workers...

My husband and I had a great stay at The Crash Pad. Coming right off of a trip traveling in Latin America and staying in lots of hostels, the price at first seemed high at $30 a bunk, but once we'd compared that price to the other options in the area, and seen the super high quality of the bunks...

If you never thought you'd stay in a hostel, think again. While this property caters to rock climbers, those with an athletic bent and outdoorsy types The Crash Pad is a hostel for everyone. Not a hotel and not your average hostel, this place has a vibe all of its own. There has been a great deal of thought put...

I have stayed at the Crash Pad 4 times (2 x in a private room and 2x in bunks). I am a triathlete training for the Ironman races held in Chatty. The CP is located about one mile from the IM bike course, so it's super easy to jump on the bike course and head out of town for N....

I didn't have any expectations of this place - my husband booked it for a one-night stay during our road trip. I was very pleasantly surprised - we stay in hostels and budget hotels a lot, and usually they're really good. This place was more than really good. We stayed in a private double room, but from the look of...

My wife and I made a trip down to Chat over Presidents' Day weekend to Boulder and stayed at The Crash Pad. We reserved one of the private rooms (w/ a shared bathroom) and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The staff was just awesome. They were chill and super cool/laid back and in good spirits. First, we arrived later...

The crew at the Crash Pad is really what made my experience so amazing. Jordan, John, Bethyn, Kaitlyn, and Corey ALL went well out of their way in accommodating me and making sure I had an awesome stay. I only had a few short days in Chattanooga but I left feeling like I had made some everlasting memories and friendships....
