Hotels and hostels

Our way of working is that we do a block booking at hotels and hostels where we can get reasonable deals. About one month before the conference (or ideally later) we get back to the hotel and hostel regarding how many of the rooms or places in the block booking we will actually use, and then again a few days before we confirm the final number and names of everyone.

We will then pay rooms by invoice.
