Hostel safety: leave all stuff there while exploring a city

Hi all!

Is it safe to leave all your stuff (especially heavy backpacks) in a typical hostel when you want to go explore the city? Or will other residents steal? Are the bedrooms typically locked? Any experiences here? What do people usually do?

Take your money with you ... and before to book a hostel, ask for lockers. If you have a double room, it is no problem to lock the door but if you sleep in a dorm with 10 others, better to pay attention as you will always meet travellers running out of money and always need a bit money extra. No panic - but pay attention! 🙂
Book your hostel here where you also get information about lockers and more: or
