If you expect something fancy, or boutique whatsoever you won't find it here. If you expect a very welcome house, with very friendly hosts...and really really amazing food...you are in the right place. Big rooms, very basic amenities but the family which run it is amazing...specially in the kitchen.

The room was cosy and clean but reasonably basic. The bed was very comfortable as were the pillows. No problem with the bathroom either everything worked fine. Being of...

The rooms are very cosy, quiet and clean and the breakfast is abundant with homemade bread and cakes. At Claudia and Federico's you can also have dinner, we opted for that twice and really enjoyed...

We stayed 3 nights in November. The owners were very friendly and did all they could to make our stay enjoyable. The rooms are not fancy and similar to a motel in the United States. The style is similar to a bed and breakfast where the owner turned part of their house into a motel. The breakfast could be better...

Thanks Claudia and Federico your very warm welcome and the amazing homemade breads and jams for breakfast. Wow! This place is close to town, the room is cosy and the hosts and breakfasts delightful. Had we known about the nature reserve close by, we would have stayed longer.

We had an excellent stay at Karut Josh. Claudia and Federico are very caring hosts who work extremely hard to provide clean, quiet accommodations. Claudia has excellent English and explained the options for bus travel to/from El Chalten and also to the Perito Moreno glacier. She can provide tickets, which is a great help so you don't have to go...

We received a really warm welcome from Claudia and Frederico. They go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable and clearly love where they live. The room was cosy. It's an easy walk into the town. Driving to the spectacular Perito Moreno glaciar took less than an hour on a great road with fine views.

This is hands down the best place to stay in El Calafate. Claudia y Federico are two of the warmest and most welcoming hosts we've ever encountered. And that's doing a bit of traveling in the world. The place is modest, super clean, wonderful breakfasts and they are both willing to accommodate your every need. Mine being gluten free.....wonderful breads...
