    Really nice hostel. Very clean, and the room was really comfortable and spacious. The location is amazing, about 5 min walking from a lot of pubs, less than 10 min to the capitol.

    We arrived some minutes after ten, and although there was staff inside still and we had already paid, they did not want to let us in (we had to ask them to call the manager).

    Unfortunately the only hostel/guesthouse available. Go elsewhere. There are a few good economic motels (twice the dorm price) on the frequent #6 city bus route about 7-10 km east of downtown, where you can loosen up a little.

    Sneaky, unadvertised, daily membership fees when you check in ($4/day!! Most HI's Don't sneak this), which is, strangely, at odds with the self-congratulatory claim of being a non-profit organization. Convent-like atmosphere (as if they Want you to "mess up", for anything, due to their own boredom). Totally out-of-touch with the international travel/hospitality market/mindset. Feels like your living with your really nosey, ocd parents. Hot, stuffy rooms. Uncomfortable, thick beds. Not allowed to do laundry until After, 17:00!! Unaccommodating for simple, normal little things, like hospitality, then sheepishly feigning welcome, friendship & "chain-of-command limitation" while being "unhospitable" and "managerial". Self-defeating policies. Self-satisfied sense of erroneous progressivism. Everyone snores. Childish. Mechanical. Guests made to feel like homeless transients (warning: Don't leave your shoes out front overnight!). Zero understanding of Asian societies--condescending on appliance/cause-effect instructions when asking where something simply "is" --and this is all during low-season. I was an ideal guest, well within paying guest parameters. I guess not everybody gets along smashingly. (It's more than simply "then wear earplugs" or "it's a hostel", or " you get what you pay for"). Put in a little more elbow grease. It amazes me no one has attempted to compete with them directly in Madison. (Bio: I have traveled forty-seven countries and have lived in three abroad. I work in Hospitality, Teaching and Sales. -Good Day.).
