South, towards Warsaw
Go to the intersection of Ul. Tuwima and Ul. Warszawaska. It is right next to Kortowo (the university campus). From there, you will see a bus stop 10m further south from the intersection on Ul. Warszawaska. Ugly angel notes that although he has never hitched from here, he has seen others do it successfully.
- I recommend going a bit further(1km) towards petrol station(Orlen probably). I hich rides there and it works. Of course its during day light. If night caught you here move to the spot above or even closer to Olsztyn city center -> crossing Armii Krajowej x Warszawska.
Another option : Take any of 3 buses : 3, 9, 15 ,28 to the last stop. From there walk about 200 m straight on, and down there you will notice 'Orlen' petrol station. Perfect spot to get a life by asking people.
South-Western, towards Ostroda
Get in the bus number 7, 13 or 32, and watch the stops carefully. When you see yourself at the 2 lined quite fast street, get off at the closest bus stop. Once you are there, you are at the perfect spot, which doesn't require much time to get a lift from.
Gdansk or Torun
Go to Armii Krajowej, there's bus stop right in the beginning of it. If you come from Ul. Warszawska it's 2nd bus stop. It's just before bridge. I stand there during the day. For night move to traffic light Armii Krajowej x Warszawska.
To above spots it's no problem to walk out of city center. I would say maximum 30min. leisure walk, including asking for directions :).
