Me and my partner stayed here for 4 nights in winter. Gerhard and Sebastian were absolutely amazing and so helpful, even booked our train tickets to Vienna. Every night we had home cooked meals including desert. Breakfast was great also. The bed was so comfy! It was pretty quiet as it was winter but we rented bikes and rode down... More

The Treehouse is a small family run hostel in the middle of the woods. The owners are fantastic and love your company, they always helped out with lifts to bus stops when we had activities planned. The hostel has plenty of rooms to relax: a pool/bar room, a TV room and the large dining room with a bar. Our private... More

I arrived at The Tree House and had been travelling by myself. I was met with a home cooked meal of lasagne (the best I've ever had) made personally by Gerhard. I had been sick for a few days and my sickness become worse whilst there. Gerhard allowed me to stay extra nights in my own room for no extra... More

We spent 4 days at The Treehouse. The rooms were clean, comfortable and warm. Gerhard and Sebastian were very accommodating and friendly. They worked hard to make sure all guests needs were met and the dinners prepared were amazing. Gerhard even put the rugby on when we asked if we could watch it. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the... More

Grunau is a beautiful place. The hostel is great to escape from the big cities. We loved the bike hire and hike to the waterfall. There is plenty to do if you are into hiking and the outdoors. Of course the stream is beautiful being able to fill up your bottle directly from the stream. We were slightly disappointed as... More

Stayed here for two nights as we originally weren't going to Grunau but we changed our minds because everyone we talked to had recommended going to The Treehouse. This place was the most beautiful and relaxing place. The owner and his family made you feel right at home. The house backs onto a river which you can drink straight from... More

Great atmosphere. Perfect location for hiking. Perfect in both summer and winter. Such a homely feel abput this place. They cook dinner for you and serve you good local drinks. Rack up your bar tab and pay it all at the end.
