Solo female traveler safety?

Hello!

I am traveling solo for my first time, as a young female, to Valladolid in the spring.

I am a little nervous about taking taxis and colectivos on my own. I will be staying at a well known hostel during my stay.

How safe is Valladolid for a solo female? Is it safe to take taxis and colectivos alone? And are there any areas of the city that should be avoided?

Thanks so much and I would appreciate any advice you might have!

I lived in Valladolid and think it is very safe. Like any town, use common sense. But I was listed on Coach Surfing and hosted a number of single young females and none had any problems. They used taxis, buses, colectivos and bicycles. One, from Spain, was hitchhiking through Mexico and Central and South America. I would not recommend that but even she had no problems.

I would worry more about other guests at a hostel than the people of Valladolid, ha ha.

Go and enjoy!
