It was a situation which hadn't pleased the neighbours very much.

Hasibul Alam Gone down means considered in this context?

No. Not 'considered'. The whole idiom is 'to go down well', and it's usually negated to 'not to go down well', which is 'not to be easily accepted', 'not to be very pleasing', 'to be unwelcome'.

Examples:

A few drinks is all right, but too many won't go down well with the boss.
Telling people not to go to the beach is not going to go down well.
That line of argument doesn't go down well in metropolitan circles.
The pay cuts did not go down well, which led to a mutiny in the Royal Navy.
That kind of government would certainly not go down well with Indonesia's students.
