Fodor's Review

The historic Armed Services YMCA Building houses this no-frills hostel suitable for backpackers and other budget-minded travelers. 500 West has mostly single rooms and very few doubles, and all rooms share European-style detached private bathrooms. A shared kitchen is equipped with a Viking range and Sub-Zero refrigerator; guests can also access laundry facilities and a common area with tables and vending machines. The YMCA gym ($5 per day for guests) is still downstairs, and may account for the sometimes-funny smell in the lobby.
