Take the Finnair city bus finnair.fi/finnaircom/…

to the Opera House. The hostel is at the back of the stadion from where you'll be walking. The distance from the stop will be less than 1 km, within sight from the stop actually, just head for the tower and after reaching it continue to the back.

Plan B) The municipal bus 615 will take you to the Railway station and from there you'll need to change to tram (10, 7, 4 or 3T). Also most buses that leave from the Elielinaukio Square head to the direction of the Stadion: hop off at the Kisahalli (south, closer to the stadium main gates) or at Kansaneläkelaitos (north, closer to the hostel) stop.

Finnair City Bus €5.90, bus 615 + tram €4 (the regional ticket is valid for both of them within 80 min of the start of the journey).

The closest to the hostel you get by trams 3 and 7 stopping at Auroran sairaala stop. It's where Pohjoinen stadionintie starts.

There is not much sence driving all the way South to the Railway Station and then back North. Take bus 615 (or 615T) and get of at Pyöräilystadion stop, walk to the tram stop Uintikeskus (<50 m between the lanes in Mäkelänkatu) and take tram 7B to the Auroran sairaala stop.
