I spent a total of 12 nights here over a month in Nepal at the time of the earthquakes. The staff were happy to accommodate my coming and going. The boys were always cheerful and friendly and invariably helpful. I was well looked after.

Great hotel, quiet and close to everything. Great prices too! On arrival I was told to treat the place as it was my lounge room, and the owner and staff were very friendly. They also have great local knowledge and can organise anything for you. The manager, Siri, has been to Everest Base Camp over 50 times and can help... More

The drive to Backyard hotel was great, I was already amazed and overwhelmed by how different Thamel is from the rest of all the places I've been to.

We loved our stay at the Backyard Hotel! The location is great, in the middle of Thamel. The rooms were clean and spacious and the kitchen on the terrace serves the yummiest Nepali breakfasts and dinners! What takes this hotel to the next level is the service, the staff are extremely warm and friendly and are always willing to go... More

When we arrived in Kathmandu, we booked at the backyard hotel for one night. Our experience was so good that we decided to stay 5 nights before our trek, and 7 nights after taking our trek, while wainting to take our plane back to Canada. The staff was 10/10 and at first, our plan was to book a trek for... More

I had originally booked two consecutive nights here and had to change it to two single nights due to an overnight rafting trip in the middle.

Great value for money. The best part of this hotel is the restaurant on the roof run by chef Jimmy. I would recommend the traditional indian breakfast and definitely have dinner up there one night. We stayed in a deluxe room and were lucky to have an outside balcony area. Would definitely recommend room 111. The hotel staff are always... More

The room was comfortable, was big,but in my room the heater didn't worked that day, so it was cold that night. But the sheet warming me. The breakfast was good and the crew are friendly. When we were living they gave us an scarf for the good luck. From outside it look totally different, so you might be surprised!
