Dallas is one of the most multicultural cities in the midwest and definitely a city worth visiting. Dallas is a unique city with a lot of "cowboys" with boots, hats, and shirts (and many "cowgirl" looking women, as well) who like rodeos. There are many interesting places with authentic Wild West views but also many Italian, Chinese, and Thai restaurants, which offer great meals at modest prices.

While Dallas hostels are centrally located, they are not that numerous for a city of this size; as a result they are a bit overpriced. Some of them are even university-run. Availability should not be a problem even a few days before arrival. You may want to rent a car to access your Dallas hostel if you like to be more flexible; Dallas is a large city with bad public transportation.

You should also be sure you know the best way to get to your Dallas hostel -- the airport is closer to Fort Worth than Dallas and public transportation is not Dallas' best feature. If you arrive any time on Sunday or even late evening on Saturday, then you might have serious problems getting to your hostel. Dallas is a big city with many wide spaces, so you can end up traveling a lot to get to your Dallas hostel. Traffic jams happen quite often and it is very expensive to take a taxi.
