About The Crash Pad: An Uncommon Hostel

We have a full kitchen and living room area designed to foster a communal spirit and encourage our guests to share their adventures and make new friends. reebies include Wi-Fi throughout and breakfast fare

After deciding the 100 year old house on site was beyond repair, we demolished it, but diverted 99% of its materials from going to the landfill. Bricks and wood from the old house were incorporated into the new building, which consists of a pre-cast concrete exterior and is topped with a green roof. A solar array above the entrance is tied into the city's power grid. We use gas-powered tankless water heaters, low-flow sinks, showers, and toilets, LED lighting, energy-efficient washers and dryers, and re-useable cloth hand towels.

Accommodation Information

We offer five types of accommodations to best suit your budget, travel preferences, and the size of your party:

a. Our most basic lodging is a Super Bunk. Each of our six Super Bunk areas feature four beds, making a total of 24 beds throughout the hostel. We use the term “bunk” lightly, as these handcrafted beds offer a sturdy and quiet wrap-around wooden enclosure with privacy curtains. Each bed also has a reading lamp and a fan, plus two extra outlets. There is ample, lockable storage space beneath each bed (Locker dimensions: 40″ deep, 36″ wide, 16″ tall). Please keep in mind that these bunk areas are co-ed! Give us a call or shoot us an email if you don’t feel comfortable with that and we’ll do our best to accommodate you!

b. We have five private rooms. Each of these features a handcrafted queen bed with built in nightstand, and a beautiful, unique concrete sink. All private rooms will be equipped with a reading lamp, a ceiling fan, and plenty of extra outlets.

c. Our Super Queen sleeps 3 comfortably. The same handcrafted queen bed sits beneath a vaulted bunk bed. The room comes with all of the amenities that you’d find in one of our private rooms, including your own private sink and a view of our beautiful pavilion.

d. The Chatt Room is perfect for the business traveler, or really just for anyone looking for space to stretch out. Comfort meets practicality with a queen sized pillow-top mattress, desk, couch, small dresser, and handcrafted sink. Whether you’re preparing for tomorrow’s presentation or tomorrow’s climb, the Chatt Room has ample space to work, chill, store gear, and crash.

e. Our newest addition, The Hemingway Suite, accommodates up to four. This 529 square foot suite rises over the revitalized Southside of Chattanooga and sister business, Flying Squirrel. The Hemingway Suite is the perfect balance of privacy and community experience that only The Crash Pad provides. Equipped with a Galley style kitchen, private bath, hangout lounge, queen sized sofa sleeper, and master bed, The Hemi is a boutique accommodation done The Crash Pad way.

Location Information

1. The Southside has been revitalized with art, culture, cuisine, and entertainment and has come to define the city. With the 50+ businesses, including restaurants, bars, shops, and café’s, this once-desolate area is experiencing a second life.

2. Chattanooga has always been an outdoor enthusiasts playground. With 50+ trailheads within 30 minutes of the downtown, some of the best rock climbing in the world, and ample creeks and rivers, Chattanooga has something to offer for everyone!
