Recommended Hotels

We have considered two options for receiving ambassadors: the first is a four star hotel located at the city center (King David hotel), often chosen for conferences and events of this nature, the second corresponds to a Hostel also located at central area booking all seats for the occasion. In giving the latter a difference in significant costs, our idea is to call as many members of our Fedora FUDCon.

Star Rating Hotel Name Reference Price Condition
* four starts King David flat Hotel 145 USD per triple room internet, private room (breakfast not included)
* two starts Babilonia Hostel 25 USD per person internet, shared bathroom (breakfast not included, we have free access to the kitchen area.

Breakfast costs 5 USD S per person,we can arrange to bring us.


Please add your name to the list if you will attend. Also, please indicate the following:
  • Put an X in the $$$ column if you need funding to attend, and visit the FUDCon ticket tracker to make a funding request. We have a limited budget and will work hard to fund as many people as possible. We'll use these answers to help figure out budgeting for the event. We are making arrangements for attendees from other geographic regions to encourage specific initiatives such as future FUDCon events, but preference may otherwise be given to people in North America.
  • Put a V in the Veg column if you would like vegetarian fare for any meals that we provide during the event. If you prefer vegan fare, please mark that column VV. We will do our best to make sure everyone is accommodated! Note: "Hell No" and similar statements are offensive to some and should not be included in this column.
  • Put your T-shirt size in the Size column, so we can have an idea about what sizes to have available. Only Unisex (Mens Sizes will be ordered)
  • Roomsharing:
    1. If you want or need to share a room, mark yes in the "Roomshare?" column.
    2. Once you have a roommate, both of you should mark your roommate's name in the block as well.
    3. If you need a roommate, look for someone with just a yes in the column, and contact them via email. If you encounter any problems, let the organizers know.
Use the Comments section for anything else you think organizers need to know, or to offer or ask for space or rides.
