our Stay at Rukahué
A fantastic stay and best of all Adriana was a great host who did everything to make our stay truly memorable. A few minutes outside town it can easily be walked to or will cost you less than $2 for a taxi. I would strongly encourage anyone looking to stay there to book it.

Adriana is the best host. This is a true home where Adriana and her family lives. As soon as you enter, you feel coming into someone's home and you are welcomed in a warm and genuine manner. It was lovely to stay in this hosteria which is super clean and truly authentic, which is rare to come by. Downtown is short 5-10 min walk and the view from the hosteria is beautiful on the lake and surroundings. Every morning, home made breakfast is served to you by the host herself. I highly recommend staying here if in el Calafate.
