Here's hoping that myself and Murray don't get read by all the same people...
Because of demand for cheap accommodation, we came up with the very cheap (8 per night) Camp Feuerbach, a kind of summer camp type place where we can rent dorms for the weekend.
There's a minimum requirement before we can have it though. That minimum is pretty small, but hasn't been met (so far only 6 people have signed up for camp in the wiki. I get the impression (because of the demand we had beforehand) that there are many more people who want to avail of this, but perhaps they don't know wikis very well, or are holding off until the last minute on committing.
Murray Cumming has offered to put up the cash in advance to reserve the camp, but he needs numbers to do that. So if you want to sleep cheap in Stuttgart, mail Murray (murrayc at NOSPAMmurrayc dot com). Soon. Please.
The alternative is that people who have booked for this will have hostel places kept for them, at the less cheap (but still cheap) price of 80 for the weekend (3 nights).
