Stayed here for two nights after going to Everest Base Camp. I had stayed at two hitels prior and this was by far the best. The rooms are modest but good for the price. The staff and location are excellent. Highly recommened.

Spent a few days here recently on my first trip to Nepal. The staff were helpful friendly and arranged a day tour of temples and a short Trek for me during my stay. They recommended eating places when I asked. The rooms are big and have everything you need. Taking into account this is a budget hotel, it's hard to... More

Hotel Backyard is an excellent choice in Katmandu. Located in the heart of Thamel near restaurants, cafes, shops and everything you need. This budget hotel is clean, comfortable and safe with super friendly and helpful staff. Mr Sunil (manager) and Mr. Durga (owner) are always around to make your stay more pleasant. They can also arrange all your travel needs... More

I stayed at this hotel last summer. The hotel is very near the main road in Kathmandu Thamel, but in a parallel street so it is quiet. At the time of my stay there was no generator so blackouts were frequent. The structure is run down. The antenna and the wi-fi had occasional troubles. The personnel has always been very... More

I was very pleased with my stay at "Backyard Hotel"! All in all the hotel is nice, clean and well kept. It is located in the very center of Thamel, but just off the main streets so you are not disturbed at all. But the thing that sets "Backyard" apart form the rest of the hotels I've stayed at; is...

From my first emails to Sunil, enquiring about availability and cost of accommodation, less than a week in advance, I felt welcomed. Sunsil answered all my questions, was very prompt with his replies and very professional. I work within the travel industry, and these qualities had reassured me I was booking with a hotel that cared for their customers. I... More

Fairly central if you want to stay in Thamel/tourist area of Kathmandu. Not expensive but if you're on a budget you can do slightly better if you're determined. The owner/manager is a bit full of himself and best avoided, although he has some nice staff who speak English well and are quite helpful. Standard of cleanliness and things working is... More
