Sorry, but I cannot immediately find the information and I don't
want to spend the time to search for them.

Just so you know: rooms should be around 35€/person incl. three
meals a day.

That's discounted from 1.600 €/day because we intend to give them
130k €. Your price will probably differ.

We have the same problem as we aren't local either, and I am not
sure any of us can or want to take on additional responsibilities
beyond DebConf15 — I am sure you understand… We are also looking for
local people (just not yet). If we collocate, this will pose the
question of whether we'll get into each others' way, as many of the
locals will be interested in GUADEC and DebConf.

You can do that. I will tell you what the youth hostel says when
they reply.
