Default Hostels with lockers

Hi all... I will be carrying around some valuables and an even more valuable backpack!... so I want to find hostels that have lockers that will hold my entire backpack. I suppose I could live with smaller lockers that couild hold my smaller valuables with the backpack chained to the bed. So does anyone have any hostels in mind in: Paris, Amsterdam, Florence, Venice and Rome with big lockers?
Thanks, David

At the Flying Pig downtown there were lockers under each bed that you had to lock, but I had a pretty expensive backpack and stuff and I never worried about it. I think there's a general coalition of backpackers in hostels to not touch eachother's shit. So I would leave mine on my room all day for the most part, and keep the more valuable stuff with me ( ie my camera ). But a lot of the hostels I went to there were rooms that you would put your stuff in and it would be locked all day and could only be locked with the key from the desk.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. I never once met someone who had there stuff stolen at a hostel...

"I set out alone, finding no companion to cheer the way with friendly intercourse, and no party of travellers with whom to associate myself. Swayed by an overmastering impulse within me, and a long-cherished desire to visit those glorious sanctuaries, I resolved to quit all my friends and tear myself away from my home."

i'm with glitter, it's like an unspoken rule for one backpacker to not touch anothers stuff. i know i've never had a problem with it... i mean don't take lots of valuable stuff and show it off. i kept my camera and money under my pillow while i slept and on me any other time. most of the stuff i had with me i could live without if i lost it. i also planned some extra cash is something did happen to my stuff.

It pretty much is an unspoken rule, but seeing that you have 3 Italian cities on your itinerary, I'll relate to you that every story I've heard of stuff being stolen from a room has been from Italy - especially Rome. Just a heads-up... You could always get one of those PacSafe backpack lockdown net thingies if you're really worried. Personally, if there isn't a locker, I leave most of my stuff out. But then, most people take one look at me and realize that I might go all Hong Kong Fooey on their asses.
