Madison, Wisconsin's State Capital, is a particularly liberal big Midwestern college town and a great place for travelers looking to stay in a hostel. Whether taking a dip in Lake Mendoda (or one of the other four lakes in town), touring Wisconsin's just-barely smaller copy of the National Capitol, or hitting up the shops on State Street, you'll get a feel for this odd Wisconsin oasis. Food-wise, eclectic offerings provide a hearty Midwestern fill of fusions of local and international cuisines, and most importantly of all visit, the dairy right on site at the University of Wisconsin.

Your choices for Madison hostels are limited, but it's still a great place to stay in a hostel. And getting around is a breeze, even without a car as Madison is bike friendly and the the Madison Metro bus system is easy to use. Madison is right on the main transportation corridors in the Upper Midwest and a worthy stop between Chicago or Milwaukee and the Twin Cities.
