I'd go for it. Hopefully, you've got about 10% negotiating room on the bike. Yeah, you might find something cheaper, but you're not going to find too much that is nicer in that price range for a first bike. Get a BIG lock and chain if you buy it - that's definitely very desirable theft bait.
Just make sure it fits you properly.
