Do you late last minute booking? As my friend & I are travelling on standby air ticket. If you can, can you meet us at the train station upon arrival date?
The train station is pretty much next to the Hostel. The whole village is small so everything is close. I wouldnt be concerned about that
Last minute booking wasn't a problem for us, but we went in the off season. For sure don't worry about meeting at the train station, you can definitely walk. But you'll miss Eco Packers if you aren't on the look out for it. It's just a discrete entrance, there's no sign outside.
