At the moment I don't think tripadvisor if used by a lot of hostel users (In Europe at least - don't know about the USA) but it may become more popular in the future. Unless they improve their security they're always going to be open to this. As they have no way of knowing if someone has stayed then there can always be fraudulent revies, both negative and positive. I must admit the main problem I have with tripadvisor reviews is that some of them are obviously written by VERY fussy people, and don't give an indication of what I would think of the place.
