Both have their benefits and setbacks. Having certain unfortunate experience with this, let me explain.
Pros - A great insulator, meaning during the winter time, your house will be warm; cheap
Cons - Very hard to clean; the nastiest particles can bury itself into the lining and it will never come out
Pros - Easy to clean and maintenance
Cons - Very meticulous to set up; very easy to damage; expensive
Overall, having wooden floors is better for the long run, but if you are on a short budget, carpeting is your only option.2

Carpets harder to clean but it's really soft...
Hardwood looks more classy but isn't soft...1
