Yes, I assuming that's what they mean when they say "exact numbers
1 week in advance". They do have a ±10% margin, so…

I think closing registration one or even four weeks prior to the
event is a reasonable thing to do.

If people decide to show up spontaneously, they simply cannot expect
to be fed. There are restaurants around though, and the bistro will
have convenience food.

The hostel will not let us do this. That's the whole point: they are
willing to refund us unused meals if we can prove that we are not
using them.
