HOSTEL & PERSONAL SAFETY

Jump to last reply

Everyone's responses on here have been so great & helpful that I have decided to ask yet another question! I'll be backpacking throughout ALL OF Western Europe July-Sept & will be staying in Hostels during my travels. Aside from Hollywood movies portraying them in such ways like Hostel or Taken, how safe are the majority of them & how safe is my stuff being shoved in a locker with a lock. I have many worries about my stuff getting stolen inside the hostels, let alone in certain countries. I have got a money belt & a cable wire cord that goes around my backpack as well as multiple locks but want to know of any other precautions to take. Thanks for your advice!


Side note: I plan to travel a lot buy the Euro Train & sleep on it as well. Any tips for myself & things while traveling on that too?
