Yes, there's broken windows upstairs but the Route 66 Hostel still has a bike leaning against the front sign and someone peacefully reading in the yard. A tradition of economical travel continues. Located on Central between downtown & old town.

Back in the early 90s when I was in college one of my buddies actually had to live in that hostel for a while when his girlfriend broke up with him and tossed him out on his ear.  It actually looks like it's in better shape now!

Thanks for the comments. It is an interesting place. John- I can't help my plays on words. It's an illness!
