Booking a hostel room

In view of the fact that the capacity of the hostel Academic is limited it is necessary to place an order and pay upfront via card or PayPal. After placing your order and making the payment, you will get the hostel booking confirmation amongst other instructions on your account at Please, print that hostel booking confirmation and bring it to the Brutal Assault check-in desk in the hostel lobby. After presenting your identity (by photo ID or passport) you will get your room(s).

Notice: In order to check-in you must present a hostel booking confirmation and your ID or passport. The names must correspond with all names given in the form. BA check-in in the lobby will be available from Wednesday from 12:00 noon and then anytime later during the festival. The hostel reception will process reservations with check-in on Tuesday.



There're official festival shuttle buses to Hradec Kralove for our hostel guests. However any vacant seats in each of the shuttle buses is available for sale! You can purchase a one way ride per 100,- CZK. Our hostel guests however have priority and they’re boarding first, only after they’re seated we can sell the remaining seats on each bus. For this year we’ve discarded the reservation system for the FESTIVAL → HOSTEL route and we’re introducing shuttle line 666 departuring from the old meeting point at the main Josefov square, where tickets will also be for sale. The only difference is that we don’t have a schedule with reservations, there will simply be buses boarding and shuttling you every 20 minutes starting at 23:30 with the last ride scheduled for 03:30. The HOSTEL → FESTIVAL route remains in the scheduled & mandatory reservation mode.
