SOURCE: Radiator blockage?
I believe you have a head gasket blown or a cracked head. When you start it up COLD with the cap off, it would push water out immediately. Fill it with plain water and try this. It might not be a bad idea to perform a pressure test too. Also check for antifreeze in the oil. It will get milky looking and might even be over full. If this happens after warm-up, you may just have a plugged radiator. Have it professionally cleaned. The water pump vanes could also possibly be corroded off and it's not effectively displacing coolant. Hope this helps.

Your overflow hose is at the first tier after the seal on the radiator cap. The first thing I would check is the cap gasket, then make sure the cap is completely installed, push down hard and turn until it locks into position. If your water pump was bad, you would either be leaking water from the pump, or your car would be running hot. Usually, when you have steam/water coming out the overflow, if it is not a problem with the cap, then you are indeed running hot. If the thermostat is not opening or is stuck in the closed positiion, it will not cause your radiator to overflow, however if it is sticking closed and allowing your car to overheat then opening at a higher pressure, it could happen. Check the components in this order, gasket, cap installation, then thermostat, (you can replace the thermostat for about 10 dollars. Good luck
