There's a reason why this place has the reviews it does! Had a fantastic time here. It was raining when we arrived, but staff were more than happy to make us feel at home. The meals and drinks are on the pricey side, but portion sizes make it worth it. The 'hostel' is actually a 4 storey house - which... More

This place is fantastic! It is a family run hostel and they make you feel right at home from the moment you get there! The venue is clean, tidy and has everything you could need! Including a movie room which makes you feel like you are sitting at home in your lounge room. This is the best hostel I've stayed... More

This is the best hostel we have stayed at. It has a great family atmosphere and the staff are amazing. Gerhard is an amazing cook. You have to come home for his nightly home cooked meals and deserts when everyone in the hostel sits around the table and chats. It's a great place for a break from the cities. The... More

Best hostel I have stayed at thus far. I would highly recommend it to anyone considering this. The location is absolutely stunning, and you have boundless opportunities to see them. Grabbing a bike and riding down to the lake was definitely my highlight.

Fantastic and generous staff who go out of their way to provide a pleasant stay for their guests. They offer a range of activities to do in Grunau and the surrounding areas, but just chilling out next to the icy river is also fantastic. Delicious home cooked meals every night. You will want to stay here forever!

It's a place where you can get home cooked meals, cooked by the owner, an ex-chef, Gerhard! while your here make sure you do archery in the alps, visit the picturesque waterfall complete... More

Gerhard and his staff do such a great job of making you feel welcome. Home cooked meals, friendly company, an awesome movie room and a games room. The games room has an awesome sound system, darts, pool table and complete sound proofing. So you can keep going for as long as you want. Or you can have a campfire along... More

I can not speak highly enough of this place. Gerard is such a great guy.. Friendly, informative and unbelievably kind. It's like a home away from home, cosy, clean, warm and friendly. The meals cooked each night were the best I have had in years and the breakfast is fantastic! The service from all the staff is top notch, the... More

What can I say... I love the Treehouse! Friends and I have been coming back here for seven years now. Gerhard is a legend, the place is beautiful and you can't ski/board decent slopes for cheaper in Europe. Gerhard has recently been doing a lot of work on the place so is looking top-notch again. Dinners are always good, as... More
