Is the tourist visa not issued to people who are planning in private residence?

Hello! Any info is greatly appreciated, it's kind of urgent.
Please tell me if the tourist visa is only issued to people who are planning to stay in a hotel, and not in private residence. Do you have to stay that was listed on the request for thetourist invitation for the full length of the stay?
Thank you!
