          I am a young woman and it is my first time traveling out of the country alone. Is Kandara a good, safe place for me to be traveling to and from London city alone? I have been reading that there have been some incidents in Islington in the past, and to avoid areas outside of the main Angel area. I also considered staying in a hostel, but I felt that a private room would make me feel safer, despite the commute to the city. Any and all advice is appreciated! Thanks!
