One of the essential points, when you are backpacking, is making sure that you take all the necessary security measures and more. Always check in from beforehand, if the hostel you are staying at has personal lockers or not, and if they do, make sure you bring your lock for your locker, take complete responsibility for your belongings. If you are carrying items like your camera, smartphone, laptop or other such valuables be careful with them.
