We have stayed elsewhere in Kathmandu; places with lots of noise, poor bathrooms and poor facilities. Not any more, the Backyard Hotel is all you need. We didn't read the reviews, but were recommended it by one traveler we met after needing to move from a "cheap" hotel. So, by spending a little extra, 1500 NPR for a twin room... More

The staff at Backyard Hotel is some of the friendliest that I've encountered in Kathmandu. They're eager to help with anything that you might possibly need and really make you feel as if you're coming home. The rooms were being updated when I visited (Sept. 2014), but they're very roomy as is. Hot water was reliable and, while the rolling... More

Rooms are spacious enough, very comfortable bed with a real matress , not the usual plywood, hot water which can be a must in winter and flat screen if you... More

I booked this hotel online after reading the reviews here, and it is true that the owner is very nice and the staff friendly. The rooms are ok if a little dated and dirty. Bathrooms are not great, but ok. The wifi is a bit hit and miss. If you don't know what you are planning on doing in Kathmandu/Nepal... More

We came to Nepal without any planning, and were worried how our trip would turn out as we had not even booked our hotel tickets. We saw reviews on Backyard hotel on Tripadvisor and thought of giving it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff here is very very good. The hotel manager Mr. Chandan Thapa actually planned entire... More

We booked the super deluxe rooms, which are newly renovated. Beds are comfy, a/c works well for heating. Appeareance of bathroom is ok. Wifi... More

I can not recommend this place enough, they have very friendly English speaking staff, clean rooms and bathrooms, free breakfast which is excellent (pick option 3)! The location is great in the heart of Kathmandu close to airport and sight seeing attractions, plenty of restaurants and shops near by. Security is great with a guard out the front all day... More
