The reviews are pretty spot on but here's my two cents anyways: Pros: -Very nice, friendly hosts. -Rooms are clean and comfortable. -Shower was hot and good pressure. -Breakfast was readily available, coffee was hot and plentiful. -Wifi was weak Cons: -They only take cash. We booked through Booking.com and wish we could have used our credit card to pay... More

Chose this hotel following the recommendations found on TA and its pretty accurate . The hotel is located on a hill 15 mn walk from libertador Main Street ( easy on the way down , better take a cab on your way back from the center). The rooms are ok but don't expect something breathtaking . The real value of... More

My boyfriend and I were in El Calafate over Christmas and we were looking for a cheap place to stay that was comfortable. Rukahue is the spot! The family that runs the hosteria is so nice. Our room was modest and comfortable with it's own private bathroom and the communal area was very spacious. It was only a 10-15 minute... More

Adriana, Santiago and family: By the time my new husband Rich and I made it down to the South of Argentina, we were admittedly weathered. Santiago was the smiling face that welcomed us in from the (incredibly) high winds outdoors. His English was near-perfect, which was such a relief given how spent we were. He never tired, or at least... More

This was such a welcoming and friendly place. My wife and I stayed there in January 2011 (late on the review) for several days and had a great time. The hotel is up the hill a bit from the town, but it's walkable (especially on the way down) and taxis are pretty cheap. Adrianna and family took care of arranging... More

The B&B is very nice and neat. The owner will give you a warm welcome and a lot of information on all you can need. She can also arrange for very good sandwiches if you have to go on excursion. Good breakfast from a panoramic hall. The house is not so close to the center town (2-3 kms) on a... More

As mentioned by other reviewers, Adrianna is a gem. Kind, caring, helpful Your satisfaction is her priority. Her son Santiago is equally as pleasant and helpful. We had some connection problems with regards to flight departure from el calafate and they both provided great assistance. Rooms are small but very clean. Bathroom shower can be a little tight space wise.... More

This feels a bit like a European ski lodge. The room are not big but very clean, and comfortable. The cleaning staff were excellent. The common areas are comfortable as well. What makes this place is the staff, they would do absolutely anything to help you. We had a lovely time staying here and I would recommend it.

Rukahue (rockaway) is a truly great experience. I recently stayed there with my wife and sister inlaw on a trip from BA. There is no way i can say enough great things about the family and experience. Thanks again Santiago and Adriana.
