What do you think about the possibilities of hostels rating guests and using blacklists? Is it fair? Is it smart? Is there a darkside to this; can it be manipulated badly?
We discussed this and more in our recent panel discussion. We gathered a diverse group of hostel owners and other industry members with a variety of opinions on the matter. They included:
- Lior Slepkov: Hostel consultant; founder of hostel.consulting
- Matt Moffit: Long term hostel and budget traveler, former hostel staff, and travel writer
- Inbal Tubi & Yahav Cohen: Co-founders of Whos Your Guest, a hostel guest rating & blacklist platform
