Im probably being paranoid but anyway...
Ive never stayed in hostels before and a bit worried about security.

1. Do most hostels have lockers? Do you pay extra for them?
2. If no lockers, do you just shove your rucksack under the sheet and hope for the best when your out all day?

3.. Any other comments to make me feel more secure would be great..

Thanks a lot;)

hi nic
im in a hostel in perth at the momment and have had no problms with security,i have stayed in other hostels all over oz and it has been on the very rare occasion that i have heard of stuff going missing , all you have to bear in mind is not to leave certain things on show ie wallet ,camera,and everything should be fine.
if you ever travel to perth the coolibah lodge hostel is great.

The hostel I'll be staying in has lockers and 24hr security. If you check the hostels website out before you get there it normally tells you. Also take a combination padlock with you (you might get a bit stuck if you lose the keys to a normal padlock) they cost about £3.00.
