    If someone really wanted to, they could monitor traffic going over the public WiFi network. But YouTube uses HTTPS, so that shouldn't be a huge problem.

    If you're really concerned, I suggest using a secure VPN, or having a computer set up back home that you can SSH into.

    Yes it is safe. Like hackmebaby said, you could use a VPN just to be safe but even without one you should be good.
