I'm planning to go travelling around the world in January and was wondering if i would need to take a sleeping bag. I've heard some hostels don't allow them!

Hi Andy,
It might be that hostels insist you use their own cotton liners, which they know they have washed!
But I slept in t-shirt and boxers, above the covers, while I was in Oz in October/November, so I'm not sure it will be an issue !

umm I never used one, even though I took one with me, usually just my sleeping bag liner I used, I always take mine, why, just habit, plus mine is light 450grammes all season, it is small, so I dont mind...may be good as an extra blanket, if your going though europe in winter, I think I may have used it then.
good luck on your decision
