I have had some jewellery taken and a brand new $400 speaker, both by the same guests, 4 young female back packers who were my 2nd or 3rd guests ever. I also had someone spill a full milo on the bed, under the electric blanket and not say anything for more than 3 weeks ruining the whole lot (thanks) and someone else from a band slash up the $300 air mattress. Damaging stuff and hiding it I think is on par with stealing so I would be just as cautious as this.
What I’ve learned: I do not take any large groups anymore, I do not take back packers anymore, so,e of who, seem entitled to steal and they are doing it tough full time travelling lol.
I don’t have a lock of my room (not possible as it’s an antique door) and have about 10 bottles of Chanel perfume and 1000s of dollars of makeup and so,e expensive clothes and I really don’t feel it’s at much risk as none of its ever been stolen. However, I would lock up what you can and don’t keep so many knock jacks and stuff about as a. You might not notice if it goes b. Your listing will look better and less cluttered with it gone.
