The alternative to a youth hostel is a hotel - at least here in Ireland it
is. Virtually all hotels have large function rooms or conference centres
with power and internet for attendees computers, and will bargain deals for
rooms and food at reduced rates for attendees. On the less-combined level,
many large bars have function rooms, but they're unlikely to have internet.

Assuming an Autumn date, organising a "Waltercon Europe" in Ireland wouldn't
be that difficult or necessarily too expensive. I'm sure other countries are
the same.
