Upon arriving at the train station in Arnhem, ascend the stairs leading to the temporary walkway, which is the walkway which does not have very much glass in it. Follow the signs to the bus station.
Take either bus 3 (departing from platform M) or bus 20 (departing from platform S). Busses of the same number departing from other platforms do not travel in the correct direction. It is possible to buy a ticket from the bus driver, or to use a multiple trip card if you have one. The distance is one zone. Get off the bus at the hospital "Ziekenhuis Rijnstate".
After exiting the bus, walk up the hill (east, with the hospital to your left) to the first intersection, Cattepoelseweg. You will see a sign for the Stayokay hostel which points to the right; this information is only valid for cars. Instead, turn left after crossing to the far side of the road.
After some distance you will encounter a footpath of steps formed from large bricks. This will be on the right-hand side. The path goes up a hill, and the hostel is located at the top.
After sunset, the footpath may not be used. Instead, at the intersection with Cattepoelseweg, continue straight in to the smaller street of Wagnerlaan. From there, take the first left, and then the first left again. The road will curve around to the hostel.
If you arrive by train, it is possible to get a "trein taxi". These taxis have fixed rates and pool passengers. However, you must purchase a train taxi ticket at the same time as your normal train ticket. Ask to go to the Stayokay hostel near the hospital "Ziekenhuis Rijnstate".
