However, if there are enough Finncon participants, the hostel will
organise a separate room for them. In this case, they can be more
flexible about the time of arrival -- therefore, you should mention
Finncon when you make a reservation.

Finncon will organise free lodging for those who don't expect too much.
The place is a building located at the Student Village of Turku. The place
has a kitchen, but no shower (although there will be a shower and sauna
available for a couple of hours on Sunday morning). You should bring your
own sleeping bags,
pillows and other necessary equipment. There is only a limited amount of
space available, and so you should reserve a place in advance.

firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone to Elsa
Viljamaa, +358 50 366 6317 or to Tuomas Varvikko, +358 50 358 8824.
