I consider myself an expert on Hostels. I have stayed in 15 hostels across two continents (Europe and USA) with a total nights stayed around 70. But how many hostels would you say it takes for a person to become a Hostel Guru? By Hostel Guru I mean, a person who has stayed in enough of them that without a doubt knows exactly what one is and can draw good comparisons to other ones when giving advice to others on wheater or not a particular one is good or not.

I guess you must have travelled more than that to be honest, to be a hostel guru. Although the term is ok though LOL.
But seriously, every hostel in every single place has it's good and bad things.

Michael and me appear to agree a lot, lately :)

But your suggestion for somehow separating people's travel experience from their hostelling experience makes sense, I guess... maybe something for the tech guys to look into?
