Combo or padlock for the hostel lockers?

The combo lock is pretty slim- maybe easier to cut...

But a padlock has issues as well- the key can get lost or stolen.

What do you use?

As always- thanks.

We stayed in several hostels during our trip and used the combination lock....did not have any problems. Keys can be lost.

Go for the combo -- one less thing to keep track of. I see no difference in security between a combo or keyed lock of the same size.
