If you are not comfortable leaving your laptop to your room, find an hostel with safety deposit box. Most of the hotels and hostels have safety deposit box either within the room or at the reception which you can use free of charge.
I'm actually back from LA. And thank goodness I didn't bring my laptop because someone I thought
I knew and was my friend ended up stealing my iPod. And I know for sure, that if I had my laptop, he would've taken it too. And I wouldn't be using it now.
