    I love Airbnb... Not only is it cheap (depends where you go obviously) but you meet some cool people along the way.

    It is safe, but choose ones with reputable reviews first

    Airbnb is awesome! Used it while I was travelling all over Europe interrailing. I'd recommend using it when you get bored of hostels as it gets a bit pricey after a while.

    Used AirBNB many a time - great tool.

    Make sure you book well in advance, so that you don't get absolutely mugged off by some of the steep pricing.
    Some hosts idea of a "fair deal" is an absolute joke.

    Travelled alone and stayed in AirBnb's without issues.
    As the above users have stated, go with rooms/flats with reputable reviews, with good pictures of course.
