Start with the Mauthausen records on the Arolsen Archives website arolsen-archives.org and go backwards.  Many times the records about incoming prisoners will list where they came from. You should at least learn when he arrived at Mauthausen. If you hit a brick wall you can submit a search request with them, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum or Yad Vashem.

I am working at home and don't have access to my Slovakian sources handy, so this is just a theory.  Many of the deportations from Slovakia went to Auschwitz.  The person in question was probably chosen for work either in Auschwitz or another camp (if it is the latter he was never registered as an Auschwitz prisoner), was sent to one or more camps or subcamps for slave labor, and ended up in Mauthausen at the end of the war, possibly at the end of a death march.

Was he a male of military age? Recruited to the labour battalions attached to the Hungarian army? This could easily have yielded a pathway ending at Mauthausen.
