We travelled for two months in South America and this was the best place we stayed. Adriana and her husband are both extremely welcoming. There was a little language barrier as our Spanish was not good but Adriana also speaks French so we struggled along with that! The breakfast, which is all homemade by Adriana is incredible. We will always... More

We loved this place! Adriana was so warm and welcoming, we felt right at home here. For us, it is in a great location, a little walk from town but close enough to get there when you need to. Adriana's breakfast was a highlight, absolutely delicious all 3 mornings we were there. The room was clean and warm and everything... More

This place reflects all the charme of the Patagonia's experience. Clean and very confortable, open all the seasons. A bit far away from the centre of El Calafate (but still 2km... and few pesos by taxi...) but with much better standard for same price if compared with double/single accommodation at hostels. You can even have dinner if you wish to... More

This is a bit overdue, but its been on our to-do list for a while. My husband and I stayed here for the 2 nights we were at El Calafate last year. Adriana and her family made us feel so welcome into their home, giving us handy tips and advice whenever needed. The common area upstairs is lovely to sit... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights and felt very welcome at this family run hosteria. Adriana and her husband made us feel at home. Adriana made us a home cooked meal for lunch and dinner for a reasonable price as we were too tired to walk into town. The room was big enough for us, but we spent... More

We spent almost a full week at Rukahue. It became our local base for excursions in and around El Calafate. The Hosteria was exactly the type of place we were hoping to find: homish, warm, cozy, affordable and service oriented. It certainly played an important role in our overall excellent experience at this wonderful tourist region. But there is more.... More

Yes the room was small and yes the shower was tiny but Rukahue is all about hospitality. Adriana is such a lovely woman; we just felt totally at home during our stay. Breakfast was delicious and we really enjoyed the common areas of the hosteria - there is a seating area upstairs with great views of Lago Argentino where you... More

We recently stayed a Rukahue' spending two days in Calafate and around Perito Moreno glacier. The B&B is a cozy wooden villa just outside Calafate city center (literally 10 minutes away from the centre, which you can reach with a convenient walk or by taxi for less than 40 pesos if you are lazy), well kept and very clean.
