Would you (female) stay for a few weeks at a co-ed "share" airbnb?

It's someone's house that they turned into an exclusively-Airbnb house where several rooms are available for short to long term rent. The owner has one of the rooms, and stays there every other day or so.
If you were a young female, do you think you would be generally comfortable staying in this kind of place for a few weeks?

It's an exclusively-Airbnb house, so it's like every week there is a different tenant (mostly guys... young to old, job-assignment, moving between houses, etc.)
Every person's ID is looked at by the owner upon arrival. (But who knows if it's a real ID lol)
Because it's winter, the house is pretty empty, so there's only one long-term guy, me (young female), the owner (not every day), and whoever transient person we might get every week-ish.
I wouldn't really worry about it if everyone lived on a different floor, but the transient person usually tends to move into the next room to mine (for price & amenity reasons), and we would have to share the bathroom.
The long-term guy lives on another floor where the owner's room is.
I'm not good looking or anything, so I don't know if I'm just a little paranoid, but I just wondered if living on the same floor with an unknown different guy by ourselves every week is creepy or what or if it's just me. (Before winter when it was more tourism friendly season, it felt less "weird" because there were females & couples as guests, too, besides guys.)
