We had 2 great nights at Posada Karut Josh. The room was very comfortable, the wifi good, breakfast simple but fresh (they provided gluten free breakfasts each morning); the whole place has a very homely feel. It was a 10 minute walk to the town centre and the restaurants - the best of which we found to be Pura Vida,... More

I and my girlfriend stayed at Karut Josh in November 2014 for two nights. We loved it. We had a great view of the lake (lago Argentino) from our room, and the personalized care taken by the couple (Claudia and Frederico) was superb. Frederico is also a very good cook, and both the rabbit stew and the osso bucco he... More

We stayed here two nights and ate there 1 night. We had a lamb stew which was excellent! The hosts are friendly and know the local area well. It is a 15 minute walk to the centre of town or the bus station, not a problem for us. During summer it stays light until 10pm and the town is super... More

Claudia & Federico are thd kindest & most helpful hosts imaginable. They helped us with tours & even made a call for us to a local bus company when I was having trouble getting a response in Australia. Can't thank them enough! Simple accommodation. Home-cooked food at very reasonable prices, a few blocks walk to town & the bus station.

We spent here three nights. The hostel is very simple and the room is very tight.The owners, an italian couple, are very nice making us feel at home. The breakfast is simple, but delicious with fruit salad, juice, homemade bread, cake, yogurt etc. Value for money. Highly recommended.

The couple seems reserved at first but they warm right up. I regret not eating their cooking bc it smelled so much better each night that what we had out. they check on everything for you and book things for you.

This Pousada has the best homemade jams, bread and cake for breakfast, fantastic hosts, and the best sleep we've had in months! The location is a 10-15 min walk to the centre of town but it isn't far at all and totally worth it because it is so quiet! The dinners we had were spectacular and reasonably priced, and the...

Federico is just as smiling, very lively and is always happy to cook a (very) good meal for his hosts. They also prepare very generous... More
