Good Brand of Lock for Hostel Lockers?

Hi All,
You've been amazingly helpful!
I have another question:

Can anyone reccommend a good kind of lock for use with a day locker in a hostel?
I know some are easier than others to break into, and I'd like something as secure as possible for under $50.

Any suggestions?
Thank you!

You should get plenty of replies if you post this question on Lonely Planet's Thorn Tree Forum -

Your trip sounds really interesting - have a great time!

I posted this on Lonely Planet as well, under the "Activities & Gear" section...

No responses yet... is there a better place to post it over there?

Thank you ElendilPickle!

I don't think there's a lock good enough that you can trust your valuables to it, such as cash, electronics, passport, etc. Keep those to a minimum, and carry them with you. Hostels will typically sell you a lock, but I can't guarantee how good it will be. Otherwise, cable locks seem to be recommended.
