          Can't wait to stay here! First time doing the hostel thing...How big are the lockers? Can you leave your belonging in dorm type rooms while gone for the day?

          The lockers in the room are tiny, maybe big enough for a pair of shoes. I normally use a locker with padlock but didn't feel the need to as our 6 bed room was pretty much empty.
