Walk or taxi to hostel?


We'll be arriving in Mendoza by bus from Buenos Aires. We're staying near the Iglesia de la Alameda, which I see is about 2 km from the bus station up Av San Martín. I'm just wondering in terms of crime/safety, is it a good idea to walk that route with our bags or should we take a taxi? We'll be arriving mid-morning if that matters.

Hola Virigina!

I am not a 100% sure which is Iglesia de la Alameda, but I would definitively not recommend to walk out of the bus station with your backpacks/ suitecases.

Retiro bus station is not the safest area of the city, and I wouldn't feel safe.

Much better either or to take a taxi, or even to take the subway. It is a very busy area, next to a very poor area, with a lot of vendors on the sidewalks, very chaotic and you will look vulnerable probably carrying your luggage.

for 2 K a taxi shouldn't be more than 25 AR$ (about 5 USD).

Hope it helps!
