Hi CrystalMaiden,

Do you mean: 

"Il n'y a guère de monde" ="There's hardly anyone here". ?

You would use 'guère' in an answer (without the ne).

e.g.

Aimez-vous l' art moderne? - Guère (meaning not really).

But it does sound a bit stilted...

Yes, what makes it different from guère, since it can be used in the same situations?
