If I were you, I would do a quick research on google. There are disavantages as advantages. It all relies on what you really want to do I guess. For exemple, even If I'm not yet an experienced web developer, I fint it very handy when you build the backend of a website, It's fast. Bootstrap helps you to have the layout quickly done, and as you don't want necessarly to focus on the CSS & HTML for this part, yep, that's super cool to use it in this case. I don't tell It doesn't have to be use on website, on the front end. But that was an exemple.

Here are something you might find interesting (5 reasons to use bootstrap and 5 reasons to not use it).
