maybe, maybe not. No way to say absolutely.

Invest in a cable lock (like what you'd use on your bike) and locks for all the zippers. If you can't fit it in a locker, then cable it to something big and immovable like a bunk bed, etc.

I have the eagle creek ultimate explorer which is a fairly big pack and it fitted in most lockers with a bit of brute force. Most the city hostels seem to have big enough lockers it's only when you go to smaller places that they don't have backpack lockers but I never had anything stolen.
