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!

This place is the best! They had me hooked after the first lasagna for lunch. This place is a must see for any backpackers travelling around Europe. 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

This place was incredible and I can't recommend it highly enough. Gerhard is accommodating and lovely - he drove me to the train station at 6am!! The house is beautiful and looks like something out of a postcard. The house is only 5 minutes walk from the lifts at the Kasberg, which is by far the cheapest skiing I've ever... More

I think I have probably visited The Treehouse on around around ten to twelve occasions, my first visit being in 2003. I am a reasonably well-travelled person having lived and studied abroad and travelled fairly extensively worldwide. I can sincerely state that The Treehouse in Grunau is like no other place I have ever stayed and is an amazing little... More

There is something about this cozy hostel that reminds you of home, no matter how far you are from your own one. Such a welcoming place, with amazing people.

I can even begin to explain the magical time we spent at Gehards treehouse. The hospitality was spectacular, Gerhard dropped us off at the activities we done which involved horse riding, archery and if u wanted a ride into the town. The food they provided was so delicious we even got a home made roast. I felt like I was... More
