    I'm curious to know what you all are paying for a crash pad?

    I've been able to find two places with openings next month. The first is $280/month and the other is $180/month. The higher of the two I believe is in the Jefferson Park area and the cheaper is blue line and Cumberland stop.

    I actually don't really have a very good idea on how expensive or cheap these things can be.

    Thanks!

    For ORD, $280 seems a bit steep for me. I was paying about $180 for a place off of Jefferson Park when I was based there a couple of years ago.

    Those prices are about right. I was always willing to pay more than the bare minimum for a crash pad because it really does make a difference in your mood before starting a trip. It's also a small price to pay for having a clean well taken care of crash pad versus a place you literally just lay your head (probably on sheets someone else slept on the night before).

    We do $250/month...2 beds to a room, and no set nights limit.

    I pay 400 a month. But that's in LA :). I've heard of places along the blue line in ORD for as 180 a month
