Trouble at immigration if you don't know how long you will stay in Europe while backpacking?

I'm going to backpack around Europe for at least 2 months but basically until I get low on money or it gets too cold. Would I have a problem getting into the first country (possibly UK) without having a return ticket? (I will be flying home from whatever country is the last stop on my tour). Should I buy some kind of open-ended ticket? Surely this is a fairly common situation, what do people do to avoid hassle? (I am Canadian).

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? [more inside]
