Varasin Majatalo Virkkulan Kuopio Rockcockia varten Kuopion Puskaradion ihmisten suosittelemana. Majatalo Virkkula oli noin 400m Kuopion torista ja saman verran Kuopion juna-asemasta. Saavuimme ison puisen rakennuksen sisäpihalle jossa oli hyvin tilaa autoille pysäköidä. Majatalo Virkkula toimii siis kesäaikaan hostellina ja normaalisti Steiner-kouluna. Vastaanotossa meitä tervehdittiin ja saatettiin huoneeseen. Olimme varanneet yksityisen huoneen eli huone oli vain meille kahdelle. Vaihtoehtona oli myös yhteismajoitusta. Huoneemme oli todella iso luokkahuone jonne oli laitettu 2 sänkyä vuodevaatteineen. Huoneessa oli käsienpesuallas, mutta WC oli käytävässä huoneen vieressä. Suihkut olivat myös erillisessä tilassa, mutta se ei haitannut. Huoneessa ei ollut ilmastointia. Onneksi olimme ottaneet tuulettimen mukaan, sillä +30 asteen lämpötilat oli liikaa. Aamupalaa (mysli, puuro, leipä ja leikkeleet, mehut, kahvi) oli tarjolla joka päivä. Puuroa viikonloppuisin. Nälkä lähti. Pihalla oli pyöriä joita voi lainata 10€ pantilla. Myös ulkopelejä löytyi.
