Hiya, I noticed you mentioned the whole thing about the ratings for hostels and things, but it would be great to maybe have a section that has written reviews or testimonials by people who have stayed there!Ratings are cool also but it would be great to allow for a little written statement about people's personal experiences at the places as well as the option to add your own photos! I often rely on Tripadvisor for reviews and they have a really big infulence over where I choose to stay and people add their pictures of the hotels and hostels and as we are all very well travelled on TP, it would be great to put our knowledge into good practice?!?!

Good idea, however I think the ability to post reviews should be restricted to members with a certain amount of posts. Otherwise that board will be swamped with spammers and people giving bad reviews of their competition.

But anyway, I think it would be good to have something like that.

hey!yeah that sounds like more of a plan, it could give people the opportunity to advertise their own places and things so it probably would be best for access only to members who have reached a certain status!
Wherever I stay at I always find myself taking pictures of everything from the front of the building to the toilets so It would be cool for people to be able to share their thoughts and reveal the truth behind places whether it be good or bad!!!

This is something that is already on the cards for later in the year and a fairly high priority as well. I agree it would be a very handy addition :) Probably we will restrict on membership status and/or verification that they stayed there (if they booked through TP basically).

I think our system won't quite be the same as other review systems out there though - we have some ideas to make it a little more interesting ;)

This sounds very good l am interested in booking a hotel in China and know very little about them therefore such a system through a trusted site like TP would be great!
