We arrived to sound of construction (constant hammering) on the 2nd floor. We were asked to check out the room by the owner (Audriana) and if we liked it we can confirm the booking. The room was dark (like a cave) mainly because of the wind in El Calafate kept Audriana from opening the hatches on the windows. This was... More

I had the goal of finding a hostería that was close to town, comfortable, and affordable. Hostería rukahué was all of that and more- Adriana, the owner, was so kind and attentive we felt extremely welcome and having her as a host made it unforgettable!

By far one of the best hosterias I have ever stayed at. The location on a hilltop overlooking the town was great--quiet and peaceful. The owners both lovely people; the woman gave hugs and kisses both on arrival and departure. Good breakfast with homemade breads. A bit of a walk downhill (uphill back) to town but not bad--and I am... More

The hospitality in this hosteria can not be beat. The place is warm & inviting. Small touches go a long way like the homemade breads and jams. The picture window in the second floor common area is great for watching the sun set over snowy peaks.

Can't recommend this hosteria highly enough. Lovely rooms, with fantastic views from the property over el calafate. A little walk from the Main Street but only 10 -15 minutes and it's more than worth the walk! The lady who owns the property with her family is fantastic. So welcoming and homely! Breakfast is superb and the best we have had... More

В этом небольшом семейном отеле мне понравилось всё, очень! По-домашнему уютно, очень чисто, есть всё необходимое, включая хороший, стабильный и-нет по wi-fi. Хозяева - доброжелетельные люди, помогут с любыми вопросами, расскажут обо всех экскурсиях, порекомендовав какую у какого тур-оператора лучше покупать. А домашняя выпечка и джемы к завтраку, которые готовит хозяйка - просто объедение :) I liked this small family... More

This is a very nice hotel close to Calafate main street which I recommend to all you Patagonia travelers who look for comfort at a good price! It is very clean and the host is a lovely family. The hotel does not have many rooms which gives a nice cozy and rustic feeling. It is situated a little bit higher... More

Excellent place to stay, the whole house its made in wood, quite warm, the rooms are big enough, nice hot shower, the hotel its not in the downtown, so its quite easy to sleep after returning from the glacier. Its only 7 min walking. The owners are very nice, they runs the whole thing, huge breakfast, wifi in every room,... More
