Transaction and administration costs are included in the package price. 
GUADEC takes place near a bank holiday in Germany, so the hostel was
booked to insure available housing for people traveling to Stuttgart. 

FYI, a number of beds at the hostel are being provided gratis by GNOME
Foundation to speakers and attendees in need of subsidy.  If you need a
subsidy, you may do so at My GUADEC 2005 Account under "View or Change
My GUADEC Participation" on the registration site.
