The boys in backyard hotel rock. They are helpful and knowledgable and always willing to go out of their way to assist in anyway possible. The rooms were clean and the entire hotel itself is very central. Right within the Thamel disctricts, with fantastic food all around. Even though their staff had been affected by the earthquake, they still had... More

I loved the friendly atmosphere at the Backyard Hotel, with free Nepalese tea all the time and other fun guests to chat with this was a great place to stay and chill out! The roof top is lovely during the rain of monsoon and the dorm rooms are well made!

The Backyard Hotel is wonderful! As soon as you arrive there, the staff greets you with a big smile and you will instantly become part of the Backyard-family! What ever question or request you might have, they will try to give their best to solve it! What makes this hotel is definitely the heartfull staff!

We don't normally splurge on hotels but decided to treat ourselves to the luxury room which has felt like a palace after living in hotels all over India for the past 6 months. Our room was spacious, the sheets on the bed were clean, and the pillows and comforters were nice and cozy. Wifi is great and they seem to... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and we're really satisfied with the over-all service that we are getting from Backyard Hotel and their staff! We booked a deluxe room and it's at the 5th flr of the hotel. The room is spacious and clean! The staff clean our room everyday (with our permision, of course) and all the hotel employees... More

The staff of Hotel Backyard was very accommodating and did everything to make sure every aspect of our trip was enjoyed and memorable. The moment we woke up for breakfast we enjoyed the warm greetings of the staff to make our meal fit to our needs. Attentiveness did not end here, but the staff were very careful to ensure my...

very good location and very nice staff... Only one problem: NEVER BOOK A TOUR WITH A GUY NAMED SANTOS, he will rip you off. The owner of the hotel is a nice and fair guy, but everything you book with SANTOS will be a scan...

It was a pleasure for me to stay in this hotel! Excellent quality-price ratio. You are in the heart of thamel, with shops, restaurants. The hotel will keep your suitcases if you decide to go trekking. Young staff and very kind, ask for Kopi it's the nicer!

definitely the best place I have stayed at in my journeys to Kathmandu. The staff are very friendly and more than helpful when trying to organizing day trips around Kathmandu or treks in the mountains, the breakfast is tasty and the rooms are very clean. It is also located in the center of Thamel, so it is very convenient if... More
