It is usually quite safe and quite fun, you may meet some friend there.
Though it is kinda safe, you shall also keep your personally and important thing close to yourself. Some will provide locker for you to keep your personal things.

where are you going? I stayed at a few backpackers hostel/hotel few times before. Keep your expensive belonging such as laptop, phones, ID, money near you. And you can leave your cloth and other belonging in your bags in the room.

Usually this places are safe, in a usual backpackers country(Australia, Europe).

But you need to bear with the noisiness, sharing of bathroom and others. I once experience a couple having intercourse just above my bed in the afternoon at a backpackers hotel in Melbourne(they are strangers who happen to be horny and agreed to fck each other, and we are roommates)

i did backpacker style a lot and still doing.

depends on your tolerance on hygiene and noise level. personally i dont mind if the bedsheet is slightly dirty or my roommates are noisy.

protip: remember to bring own padlock because usually they dont provide padlock, you need it when you go bathroom.

Pick a modern one where the locker is underneath the bed and the beds are self contained with blinds. My sister travelled alone and she used 1-2 of these hostels, paid a bit extra for the privacy and safety.

Quite safe even though on my first time staying already come across a psycho that went full nekkid in the room, but he doesnt cauase much harm to people around. Oh and its annoying when pipu smoke in the air condition room. Other than that I got no complain.
