Property Description

The Treehouse is a small friendly hostel hidden away in the tiny village of Grünau. Sitting in the middle of the Totes Gebirge (the dead mountains) the area around the hostel provides an ideal environment for outdoor activities like hiking, skiing, swimming, or just relaxing.

The secluded location ensures a good nights rest, unless you choose to join the fun in the downstairs bar, where guests and locals mingle together to chat or have a game of pool or table soccer. There are mountain bikes for hire for those who want to explore the surrounding area. There is even a tennis and basket ball court that is free to use and in winter time the ski-lifts are only 200m away. We'll supply the ski clothing free of charge.

The largest room in our hostel has only 6 beds and each room has its own private shower and toilet. And best of all, a BREAKFAST BUFFET IS INCLUDED in the room price!

The Treehouse is easy to get to. Just an hour train ride off the main line between Salzburg and Vienna. So if you're tired of the big cities get off the beaten track and come and experience some of the real Austria. View House Rules

    Absolutely the best accommodation in Europe, you’ll feel at home. From the moment you arrive you’re looked after, there’s optional home cooked dinners every night, plenty of hikes and bike rides to do. The location is incredible. It feels like a home-stay rather than a hostel.

    Gerhard was absolutely incredible. As soon as I booked for the hostel he emailed me asking if I wanted dinner the first night of my stay. He cooked everyone lasagna for lunch and made a fresh home cooked meal every night for all the guests who wanted it. Most of the hostel ate as a group which was a great way to meet people. Me and a couple people wanted to go to the lake but the location was a bit far out if we didn’t want to bike 42km, but Gerhard personally drove us to the bus station. 100%

    The Treehouse is an amazing place in the middle of Austrian Alps. If you are travelling to or from Budapest, Vienna and Munich, you must try and stay here. The food here is amazing with a 3 course meal for 10 euro and very accessible to see the local sights. And the beds and showers are super clean. Definatly try make it out to Grunau if you get the chance.

    Gerard is a fantadtic host. He goes out of his way to make you feel welcome and always calls you by your name. Gerard makes all the meals himself as he is a trained chef and they taste amazing. Gerard picked us up and dropped us off in town twice for free. The Tree House is old but very homely and I wouldn't hesitate vto stay there again.
