I realize that alpine refuge is not a hotel and will not complain about high prices or lack of water in the toilet. We could sleep well before the summit push, thanks to a dozen of our roommates for being quiet enough. But leaving some belongings on our beds was a mistake. By the time we came back (around 10:30 AM) the room was completely empty. Some stuff we could later find in the anteroom scattered on and under the shelves, some we never did. I got back my cap, which is several months old and in no way looks like rag, only because it accidentally fell out of janitor's trash bag. We were not warned of early check-out hour, and regardless of is it really in the rules or not, the staff could show a little bit of respect to other people's possessions. Treating it like that is not much better than stealing.
