I had been a good student throughout, but I was supposed to go to the hostel for few years. The first year was very tough for me, studying was even tougher, everybody had erratic schedules, somebody would scream loudly while studying, somebody would want to talk to me about something etc. etc. It was very tough and my result was not good that year, next year, due to health problem for the bad food in hostel I moved back to home and everything became normal as usual.
So, I think, home is the best place.
