    I ll suggest u guys to add card swipe facility or else add a feature in your app where a guest can pay it's all food bills at the time of checkout (if card swipe facility is not available).... Means for every type of bill, hostel manager can add those bills to the checked-in Id/guest and at the time of checkout... Guest will pay the bills!!!It will hassle free.

    It was worth our money...good location... Amazing view from the top floor common room. Zostel cafe is too good... definitely try their Rajma Chawal,palak paneer and Siddu(local dish)....they have cute, adorable, friendly dogs roaming/chilling in their property...The Manager is really helpful and he hooked us up with a good local guide for a Treck which was quite adventurous. It's definitely recommend "one stop shop" in Manali.
