Mini GUADEC 2024: We have a Venue!

We’ve had a lot of questions from people planning to attend this year’s edition of the Berlin Mini GUADEC from outside Berlin about where it’s going to happen, so they can book accommodation nearby. We have two good news on that front: First, we have secured (pending a few last organizational details) a very cool venue, and second: The venue has a hostel next to it, so there’s the possibility to stay very close by for cheap :)

Come join us at Regenbogenfabrik

The event will happen at Regenbogenfabrik in Kreuzberg (Lausitzerstraße 21a). The venue is a self-organized cultural center with a fascinating history, and consists of, in addition to the event space, a hostel, bike repair and woodworking workshops, and a kindergarten (lucky for us closed during the GUADEC days).

Some of the perks of this venue:

  • Centrally located (a few blocks from Kottbusser Tor)
  • We can stay as late as we want (no being kicked out at 6pm!)
  • Plenty of space for hacking
  • Lots of restaurants, bars, and cafes nearby
  • Right next to the Landwehrkanal and close to Görlitzer Park
  • There’s a ping pong table!

Stay at the venue

If you’re coming to Berlin from outside and would like to stay close to the venue there’s no better option than staying directly at the venue: We’ve talked to the Regebogenfabrik Hostel, and there’s still somewhere around a dozen spots available during the GUADEC days (in rooms for 2, 3, or 8 people).

Prices range between 20 and 75 Euro per person per night, depending on the size of the room. You can book using the form here (german, but Firefox Translate works well these days :) ).

As the organizing team we don’t have the capacities to get directly involved in booking the accommodations, but we’re in touch with the hostel people and can help with coordination.

Note: If you’re interested in staying at the hostel act fast, because spots are limited. To be sure to get one of the open spots, please book by next Tuesday (March 26th) and mention the codeword “GNOME” so they know to put you in rooms with other GUADEC attendees.

Also, if you’re coming don’t forget to add your name to the attendee list on Hedgedoc, so we know roughly how many people are coming :)

If you have any other questions feel free to join our Matrix room.

See you in Berlin!
