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.

What our clients say

  • Most Memorable Moment?: So many! Maybe the balloon ride?

  • I would have no hesitation in recommending the company and we will in future certainly use you again.  Everything that was arranged happened to time which for what I had been told about Mexico pleasantly surprised me.  All in all a fantastic experience

  • Mexico is such an interesting country, very diverse. I recommend to read a good guide that could give an overview of the history of Mexico and don't miss the Museum of Anttopology if it is intended to visit the arqueological sites. For those interested in the political history of Mexico, it is a must to see 'the muralistas' e.g Diego Rivera, Siquieros, Tamayo and Orosco

  • There were many highlights: the beautiful beach on our first morning in Cancun, the boat ride among the flamingos at Celestun, the sight of the Magicians Pyramid at Uxmal and the climb up the Great Pyramid there..We loved the city of Merida, and having a Sunday at leisure there was very well planned by Sophie. We walked the Paseo de Montejo, open only to bikes and pedestrians, visited the Museum of Anthropology, then had a late lunch in Santa Lucia park watching the locals dancing. Later we watched them again in the evening dancing opposite the Cathedral in Plaza Mayor. Great fun, we loved it all. We also has a fantastic visit to Ek Balam on our way to Tulum, which was one on our Mayan Archeological highlights. (So glad we didn't just drop in en route from Cancun to Merida). Tulum was lovely and the transfer to Isla Mujeres by the hotel is complimentary Catamaran service was fantastic.
