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

I messed up my booking, so instead of a dorm bed, I got a single room. The staff were very kind in accommodating me, despite my error. They were friendly, and helpful, and one person, who was coming off his shift, guided us to our dinner destination (Thamel can be a bit confusing)! However, while the room and en-suite toilet...

After the online bokking, there was no reconfirmation from the hotel, and somehow I forgot to inform them about my flight details. I just remember to inform them about my flight details for the airport... More

Tucked away in Thamel, is this cheap and cheerful hotel catering for backpackers and small groups. Friendly staff and a small travel agency that are keen to help on your expedition. The triple rooms are spacious and they have started to expand with a new wing. Breakfast consists for porridge or eggs with toast and coffee tea. Breakfast is included... More

There are no words that will ever help me describe the incredible hospitality that I received while at Backyard Hotel, Nepal. My stay in Kathmandu was rather tarnished by an unfortunate series of events, (Nepal is still one of my favourite countries in the world though) during which Durga, Sunil and the entire team at BYH made sure I was...

As a women travelling solo, it is sometimes scary to know what I may come across but after going through reviews from TripAdvisor, I went with my gut and choose to have my stay in Backyard (at lease for the fist two nights) & I wasn't disappointed at all. I was welcomed by a staff named Sagar at the airport... More

During the journey, we met a lot thing, the fight CANCELED, so we took a long road by car, a really small car carried 4 people (not including the driver), but we had to go back to Kathmandu as we arranged so full schedule for ourselves, because we only have 1 day in Kathmandu after Pokhara.
