This place is a must, especially if you are on Busabout and passing it on your way to Munich! Gerhard and Sebastian and the other staff are so wonderful and made me feel as if I was another family member. They were really generous when it came to my gluten intolerance as well, providing gluten free pasta, schnitzel, ice cream... More

This was a great hostel, located in a small and leafy town of Grunau. The hostel had good food and a great atmosphere. The hostel isn't new but has clean facilities and everything you might need. Hostel had bikes to hire, we're really informative about where to go and could offer other day activities. It was a little out of... More

This was the best 6 nights out of my 5 months of travels. Gerhard the owner and his sons are wonderful hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in summer and wish we could experience it in winter as well. Excellent home cooked meals. A fair priced bar with great tasting locally made cider. Bikes for rent with a... More

Fresh water creek 20m behind the hostel, hired bikes for the day and rode the 42km round trip to lake almsee. Swam at the water hole. And hiked to the waterfall,... More

Loved this place. Can not recommend it highly enough. Family vibe. Like a cabin in the woods. Totally epic time here and Gerhard is totally welcoming and goes out of the way for your comfort. Everyone who passes through never wants to leave! I can't wait to go back!

Staying at the Treehouse was like staying with friends. The hostel is family run and everyone gets involved, they even knew all our names. The home cooked food is so tasty and the bar is always open. The hostel organises heaps of activities, including archery and horse riding. The location is also so amazing, nestled in the beautiful mountains of... More

Everyone at the Treehouse was so welcoming and friendly, making Gruenau my FAVORITE stop on BusAbout. You can do a 6 hour hike to see over the Austrian countryside, a 42 km bike ride to Lake Almsee, enjoy well-priced home-cooked meals, and sit by a fire pit in the evening. Gerhard and Sebastian go above and beyond to make you... More

This hotel is just amazing and Gerhard, Sebastian and the staff are brilliant! Our room was really comfortable and clean, and the common area is lovely and cosy - we really felt at home here. Breakfast is included and was very generous, and the three course dinner each night was very well priced and absolutely delicious! There are lots of... More

This is by far the best hostel I have ever stayed at. If you need somewhere to unwind or are looking to get into the outdoors you must must must visit The Treehouse.
