We stayed at Posada Karut Josh one night. The rooms are big and clean, with private bathroom and free WiFi. It is within walking distance from the city center. The owners, Claudia and Federico, are very friendly, speak very good English and are always willing to help. For example, they gave useful advices before we arrived, offered to help us... More

We stayed at Posada Karut Josh for five nights while staying in El Calafate. We paid $70 US per night, which is an execellent price. There are a lot of good points to mention about staying here: 1) They are in located right in town (some of the new El Calafate lodgings are being built well beyond the outskirts of... More

This property is run by a very nice couple, who run the place so as to give you a homey feeling. They are very helpful (information, taxis, etc..). The property itself is very basic, but, given the price, and excellent deal.

This cute little B&B is about 10 minutes from the bus station and downtown. The owners were friendly and helpful to organize some tours. We had a comfortable room on the upper floor. Noise from neighbouring dogs was an issue at night but not the fault of the owner. Breakfast was okay. Fresh yogurt was healthy. Good value for what... More

First things first - everyone in El Calafate is there to be outside. So what you're looking for is a friendly place to stay with a shower and some food. This place did both just fine! Upon arrival we were greeted (without asking) with wifi code, power adapter for our U.S. plugs, and a hair dryer that my wife was... More

The exterior of thIs posada was a little disappointing, but once inside we realised we'd made a good choice. Our upstairs room was very spacious with a comfortable bed and a great view, and the hosts were so pleasant and helpful. It is well located about 15 minutes walk from the town centre and bus station, close to some good... More

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.
