Usually in hostels you can leave some important stuff at the front desk, I think. There are also lockers sometimes too. It will depend on the hostel of course.

I know that there are also some fancy contraptions you can buy to secure your stuff. Most often, things don't get stolen, because you are in a hostel with other travelers you know. They don't want to lug around your laptop either, so they won't steal it!

That said, I still wouldn't leave it in full view. Keep it in your bag and in a locker!
