Hostels vs Hotels for young woman traveling solo

Jump to last reply

My god-daughter (age 21, English only speaker, college graduate, who doesn't have much travel experience) is planning to travel solo for 3 months throughout Europe starting in August of this year and her dad doesn't want her to stay in hostels as he thinks they are too dangerous (he is a US citizen but had lived in Europe as a teenager for many years). But what would be a safer place? Are hotels much safer in general? I would think hostels (if you belong to a good hostel organization) might have similar travelers who can give each other more support.

I just don't know. What would be your advice? Thanks in advance.
