    Is that a thing anymore? If so how much does it cost, and what is the experience like? I know people are going to reference the song, please don't!

    Young man, if you need a new home
    I say young man, maybe you shouldn't go
    I said young man, ymca's sometimes don't
    offer rooms for you to stay in

    Young man, it's a hostel format
    I say young man, that the people stay at
    I said young man, can you afford all that
    Maybe look for social service

    instead of stayin at the Y M C A
    sheters instead of the Y M C A
    There are other options, depending on where you live
    And the funding your nation gives

    Guest Rooms at the YMCA of Greater New York | New York City's YMCA

    IIRC, the Village People song was all about the fabulous gay underground that was the YMCA. Apparently, it was a great pick-up spot - if you were gay that is, lol....

    my local YMCA is in an old prison.
    take that thought in for a moment.

    however, our YMCA does not offer shelter unless there's a weather emergency.
    we have other agencies that will put you up for a night or two for a small donation depending upon need.

    I stayed in a YMCA in New York for a week back in...February 1999?

    Anyway apart from the cockroaches climbing up the walls, people having sex in the next shower cubicle (trying to be all stealthy and quiet and spectacularly failing), the grotty bunk beds and questionable security it was a great time.

    If the YMCA doesn't work out, he could join the Navy.

    Yes, you can live at the YMCA at your own risk.

    But who's to know, go and check it out.

    Honestly:

    Are you looking for a new place to stay or funds are that low that you have to stay there?

    I feel lick a dick for making jokes when OP is in dire straights, but:

    if your local YMCA doesn't take people, you could always try at another city. Go West, maybe? /shoehorn

    seriously though, the fact that OP hasn't been back in here worries me (in as much as I can worry about randoms on the internet). I've been in similar situations, it's not fun.

    ...and the online powers-that-be chose one post to dominate all others, screaming "Go forth brother! Fullfil your destiny and become the chosen one!"

    All seriousness, hope the OPs living situation, whatever it may be, becomes a pleasant one.

    Well here is the thing, I want to move out of my mom's house. My income is a Plasma donations and one day temp jobs which are too far in-between. So I want a place that doesn't cost too much. My friend who I'm going to move out with has the same income situations as I do. So we are looking for a place that is cheap.

    What'ya want, you want to move out from your mom's
    What'ya want, you want to head out where you're from
    What'ya want, you want to be un libre homme
    try student housing?

    What'ya need, you need a roof over your head
    What'ya need, you need to make a lot more bread
    What'ya need, you need to find careers instead
    what's your schooling?

    Independence, you can make it if you try
    Independence, that friend a bro you can rely?
    Independence, to help you find a place to lie
    Where do the two of you live now, what are the prices in your town,
    Independence!
