    The perfect oasis in the desert. The atmosphere was great- so many wonderful people and staff to welcome us. Community oriented and a comfortable place to rest after long days of hiking. A local pool nearby to cool down, tons of hiking trails withing 25minutes-1.5 hours away (I recommend ropes canyon hard (danger) trail). Great and affordable mexican food nearby as well.

    Amazing place with very friendly people run by TJ who is very helpful. Out in nature with chickens & cats surrounded by the lovely mountain scenery of Coachella Valley. Great deal for car camping with free laundry & an excellent massage chair. Thanks so much guys!

    Overall Crashpod is a fine place to stay that is more affordable than getting a normal hotel or Airbnb. There are not any other hostels near Joshua Tree National Park. The experience of staying there would be improved with more attention to minor aspects that add up. For example, it would be nicer if there were small trash cans in the bathrooms. Also, there were hardly any mugs in the kitchen so it was hard to have a morning coffee or tea.

    Great location for our hike into the Whitewater wilderness. We were also able to park one of our cars here for the duration of our backpacking trip for a reasonable fee. Nice property and the owners have chickens and fresh eggs for breakfast. The bathrooms were clean and adequately stocked. The kitchen could use a good cleaning and is a bit cramped and I would have appreciated having paper towels available. The staff is friendly and we felt welcomed. Couch on the back porch!

    I had a good time here. It’s a good value. There’s a massage chair and chickens(free eggs for breakfast). Wasn’t super clean but not as bad as other places I’ve stayed. The employees were all nice and chill to hangout with. Overall good atmosphere. I was the only girl there and I felt safe and taken care of. Free use of laundry facilities and detergent was awesome. I would recommend staying here for sure. Definitely the cheapest place in the area.

    When I arrived to check in with my guaranteed booking from Hostel World, I was advised by Sarah the most unprofessional manager anywhere that Hostel World did charge the correct rate and cancelled my reservation. This was a great inconvenience to since because I spent $57 for the Lyft roundtrip to Crashpad Hostel from Palm Springs. Sarah stated she called Hostel World to issue a refund, but I have not heard from anyone. So much for a guaranteed booking?
