Comfortable, simple, clean, convenient location, hot water and good value. Fantastic service from Dugar and his efficient team. Breakfast was lovely and complementary tea was nice. Free airport pickup is a great bonus. Thank you and namaste to all at Backyard from Paula and Eduardo :)

The Super deluxe room is awesome for the price we got. The room is brand new and everything worked, and the hot shower was amazing. Though they have a small eating area on the roof top where we had to wait for a while to get a free table, they serve delicious breakfast. The hotel manager Mr. Sunil and his... More

Our room was not ready when promised, so we had to re-organise other activities and return twice more before we could move in. Not a good start, but things got better. I think that the staff got a hernia carrying our trekking equipment up to the 5th floor! The room was spacious and clean enough, with a nice, breezy outlook.... More

I would have loved to give this hotel a 5 star rating, but couldn't due to: 1. The 24 hour hot water was very hit and miss and 2. The first room I stayed in (101) was very noisy. Why this hotel deserves a 5 star rating. 1. 24 hour security 2. Very clean spacious rooms. 3. Reasonable price (after... More

The hotel is well located, not too noisy (it's on a back street), the value for money is hard to beat (I was in a dorm), and the staff is, I would say, rather friendly, so yes, I guess I'd recommend this hotel!

I have stayed at this hotel many times with my family and it feels like home. We often come to Nepal, and the TIA being the only international airport, we usually stay few nights in Kathmandu before going to Pokhara and when leaving Nepal. The airport shuttle service is the best. They have never missed the pickup from the airport... More

I spent about 14 days at Backyard during Oct/Nov 2014. I booked there due to positive reviews. OK hotel. But I did have a few problems. The promised Airport pickup was not there. After some confusion, we finally phoned the hotel and they paid $8 for me to take a taxi. Not a great start. I started in room 403.... More
