HI - Madison Hostel Reviews


Our humble hostel was created from a renovated 1918 residence in the heart of downtown Madison. We offer both private rooms and shared dorm space. During the summer months (June-August 15th), there is no lockout during the day. Madison is an amazing town during the summer or winter months, but be prepared for some snow if you come between November and March. The Madison Hostel is a clean and quiet environment, and we have a rule of shoelessness to keep it that way. There is a kitchen for the guests to use, and a common area with a chairs, a couch, T.V., VCR/DVD, library, free local phone, wi-fi, and a public computer for all to use. As for our dorm rooms, they are generally separated by gender, but sometimes we do have co-ed dorms during the busy summer months. We also ask that people under 18 stay in a private room if not chaperoned by a parent. Any other questions? Feel free to give us a call or check out our website: www.madisonhostel.org
