I'm staying in a hostel, the owner is absolutely lovely and all the other staff are kind and attentive. I've stayed three nights, how much should I tip and how?

Quote:I usually tip as I go along to the room boys who clean up after me and occasionally deliver breakfast or tea... a couple of rupees now and again go a long way. I never tip the owner or manager; they are normally well-compensated.
If I stay a long time (2 weeks? a month?) then I tip those who have served me when I leave... usually Rs 10 or maybe more, depending on what they've done.
