Hey, I've just spinned up my first Digital ocean Server and I've accidently set the billing to hourly somehow. How would I switch the billing from Hourly to Monthly without losing data?

Hourly billing is the same as monthly. Quoting from DO billing FAQ:

Each Droplet is billed per hour up to its monthly cap. The monthly cost of your Droplet is calculated by running the hourly rate for 28 days (672 hours). Once you reach that amount (e.g. $10/mo for a 1GB VPS), you will not be charged for your server's additional runtime. This allows you to destroy your server before the maximum monthly charge and pay only for what you use.
