Does this exist anymore?

I will be in the city for work in September and wanted to stay for a few additional days. I started poking around at "cheap" places I know of, like the Jane, etc. Everything is just as expensive as normal hotels. Why would I sleep in bunk beds and share a bathroom for $300?

I haven't tried AirBnb yet, I just feel like I've read of some cool places in T&L and Time Out, etc. New "concept" hotels like pods and shit like that. It might just be a peak travel time, I will be in town for FW so maybe that's part of it?

Do any of you have recommendations you can share? I'm starting to get a bit disheartened. I guess this is why I never actually visited the city in the past unless I had someone to crash with!
