Look under the power steering, at the front on the passenger side. It is underneath it, in a very awkward spot. The hose comes down from rad then attaches to a 90 degree elbow, which turns up. Sitting on top of this elbow is the thermostat. You have to drain your coolant first (look in your manual for how to do that). Then, there is a a bracket sitting below the elbow (which makes it impossible to reach without removing first). Remove or at least loosen the bracket, and the elbow will have to bolts holding it tight. You have to remove both bolts, and then the elbow will be released. If replacing, make sure you put a new gasket in there. Also, you'll notice (I couldn't figure it out on my own for some reason) that the new gasket will be cylindrical, while your old one will have a flat top to it. It's flat because of the pressure from the elbow pushing against it. It was a pain to replace such an otherwise mechanically simple piece.

The thermostat in a 1996 VW Golf is located by following the lower large hose of the radiator. Before removing the thermostat be sure to drain the cooling system.

The 1993 VW thermostat can be found on the front of the engine. You can follow the top radiator hose directly to the thermostat housing.

Follow the top radiator hose down to the water outlet. It is in the water outlet. Mark I might be wrong but it depends on the engine. I do know for5 a fact that the thermostat on the 2.0 is located in the water pump outlet near the bottom of the engine.

Yes, it is a Golf but VW stopped calling it the "VW Golf... GTI". Just as VW didn't call the R32 a Golf (although it is based on the VW Golf and has the same shape and many common components).
