Making hostel reservations is what this question is about.

I'm going to Europe in December/January. How do I make hostel reservations? I'll be traveling with one friend for about a week, and then by myself for another week and a half. My ideal hostel is warm, safe, and my stuff won't get stolen. We're not too afraid of roughing it, but we're going in the winter. So how (much) should we plan?
- When should we book? My dad says that hostels might get filled now, but we'd like to wait until we're on the road (for the sake of flexibility).
- For the backpacking MeFites, how did you plan your trip? What do you wish you had done differently?
- What are some good forums or websites with hostel reviews and travel tips? I've already read the threads regarding travel guides.
- What are some alternatives to hostels and hotels?
