Hostal de la Noria

Hostel de la Noria

Ideally located mid-range hotel in a converted 19th century mansion, with plenty of historic atmosphere and touches of vibrant colour.

The centrally located Hostel de la Noria is a mid-sized, mid-range hotel with plenty of historic atmosphere. The converted 19th century mansion is just two blocks from the main square in the centre of town, making it a convenient base for exploring Oaxaca.

Rooms are simple but spacious, with touches of vibrant colour. The architecture is a highlight and communal areas are particularly lovely – there's a roof terrace bar, a central courtyard with fountain and a profusion of plants, and a small plunge pool. Arts and crafts inspired by the local indigenous culture add a charming regional flavour.

Our Expert's Opinion

I recommend the junior suites, larger and lighter than the standard rooms. The suites have a separate living room, but for me, the juniors are the best choice.
