Youth hostel/cheap hotel in downtown Dallas?

Hi,

My brother-in-law is going to be touring the US on a Greyhound month pass. So far he's made all of his arrangements except for Dallas. He wasn't able to find anything suitable, so here's hoping that some local/Otter can help find something cheap and close to downtown. If you can keep it out of a sketchy area, that would be gravy.

If it makes a difference, he'll be in town the night of October 29th.

Thanks in advance!

A hostel is preferable, due to budget concerns, but if nobody comes up with anything, we'll do that. Thanks!

When I was in college, I used to stay in reasonable NY motels for about that price. Why share when you can have your own room/bathroom?
