Are Advaitins not welcome at ISKCON temples?

Am I right in feeling that practicing Advaitins, or Advaita interested students, are not welcome in Hare Krishna temples?
Are impersonalists excluded or treated with hostility, as they are in most ISKCON-guru speeches?
Should I not attend? Ask the resident guru?

I guess it depends mainly on

I guess it depends mainly on two persons: the guru/leader of the asram and you.
You need to have clear idea why do you want to join an asram of the tradition with different siddhanta. To learn more or to preach advaita? In the second case you'd waste your time and sooner or later would be asked to leave. It also depends on your age, health and gender (e.g. asrams in India are pretty austere and hardly any have facilities for women).

I wouldn't say the impersonalists are treated with hostility. If anything, then impersonalism is. Or rather with counter arguments of theoretical and practical nature.

I recommend you to read the biography of acarya Ramanuja who was at the beginning living and studying in an asram school of advaita teacher.
