Exit the station. Close to the McDonald’s, you’ll see a bus stop for buses number 133, 207 and 175.Take any of these buses for one stop to the station called ‘U Pamatniku’. Then cross the street and walk down about 20 metres – here we are!
If you decided to walk, it’ll takes you five minutes but you may find it hard to find us. Leave the station not using the main exit, but use the one for buses. When you get out of the station, find the lamp with our Hostel ELF logo and follow the arrow. Turn right, go under the bridge (little bit up the hill) and then turn left at the lights. There should be Bloody Blue tattoo salon on your left-hand side. Keep walking and on the same side there will be a bus stop – next to that is our hostel!

In the middle of this cross, you can find the second ELF lamp. Here, you have to cross on all pedestrian crossing (make like a half of a circle) and go left following the rail corridor.
