Frequently asked questions

1. Where will I stay?

The Host Organizing Committee has reserved multiple hostel accommodation options throughout Hamburg, where Preconvention attendees will share rooms with Rotaracters from around the world. The hostel you are staying in is based on the package that you booked and includes one bed in a multi-person room.  

2. What kind of accommodation is included in the packages?

The Host Organizing Committee has reserved multiple hostel accommodation options with rooms containing 4, 6 or 8 beds. In most cases every room has an en suite bathroom (for more information please see the detailed pages of the packages). 

3. May I choose if I would like to stay in a 4, 6 or 8-bed dorm room?

No, the hostel will randomly allocate guests to the rooms.

4. Can I share a room with friends?

The basic idea of a Convention is to make new acquaintances. For this reason, your international roommates will be randomly allocated. We recommend bringing something specific to your country to share with your new friends!


5. If I check in with my friends at the same time will we all stay in the same room?

No, the hostels will be randomly assigning people to rooms. If you would like to room with someone specifically, please contact the helpdesk by May 15 and they will try and accommodate your wish.

6. Will males and females stay in the same room?

The hostels will try and separate the rooms into all-female and all-male dorms. However, there is no guarantee for this.

7. Is it possible to change or cancel packages?

A change or a cancellation of the packages is not possible. However, you can transfer your package to another person until April 30, 2019. To transfer your package please contact
