The taste was good and because I had been very hungry I drank all of the soup. A woman next to me looked at me smiling, and asked me in English if I had enough. She said that she wanted to buy another dish for me, but I said that wasn't neccesariy.
The guesthouse I had looked up was on a distance of about 15 minutes from the station, but as I had feared, they had no vacant dormitory room left. They did have normal rooms left for higher prices, but I told the girl I was not interested and would search somewhere else for the night. I was able to book for the next day though.
