Keep your blinds, curtains, windows and doors closed during the day to block the sun's heat.  When it is cooler outside then inside, open selective windows so that cooler night air can enter.  Position fans to pull air in from the cooler lower level and blow it out on the hotter upper levels.  For quick local relief, you can even make a simple air conditioner by putting a metal bowl of ice in front of a fan so that the air is blowing over the ice.
