Frankly speaking, I prefer living alone, because it's more comfortable, but sometimes it's a very interesting solution. For instance, for students. Living in dormitory sometimes it's difficult and not convenient, but you can cooperate with friends and rent some apartment in reasonable price. The most important thing try to divide house chores and discuss house rules.

I never shared flat with someone foreign, so I can't write about it. Maybe live in a certain place alone can be more comfortable, but shared flat with other people is usually more interesting and sometimes can be more helpful.

I have my own house, but if I have to rent a house for work or for studying abroad I would prefer living alone. Living alone will help you get away from many problems when you have to share your space and private life. We can not believe the strangers. In case you share the house with friends, it may affect your relationship.

I more prefer to live along. But if I live with my friend and not with people I don't know, I would not mind

I enjoy living alone, which is full of freedom. You can be either a night owl or a morning bird without worrying about bothering your roommates or housemates, and you have your own personal space to enjoy your hobbies. However, living with another person will help you get through some difficult situations, such as getting sick. You will have someone to cater to you or even call an ambulance in the worst cases.
