Well not all lockers are created equal as you would see if you did a simple Google search for 'hostel locker photos'. https://www.google.ca/search?q=hostel+locker+photos&rlz=1C1CHZL_enCA704CA704&espv=2&biw=1366&bih=662&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjLzvTpz6DPAhVjpIMKHaZWBnYQsAQIGw

Nor do all hostels provide lockers. So I would not put too much emphasis on whether a pack will fit in lockers or not in making your decision of what pack to buy.

I would say you are on the right track though if you are looking at 35-45L packs rather than making the mistake so many make of buying some huge 55-70L pack that ends up weighing a ton on their back.

Two of the most recommended packs are the Osprey Porter 46 and the Osprey Farpoint 40.
