I stayed in Backyard hotel on and off for my 6 week visit to Nepal. After staying in a variety of rooms, I can say that I have no problem with any of them, all were clean, spacious and had copious amounts of hot water. Breakfast on the rooftop was always a nice way to start the day. The location is also very convenient, walking distance to everything in Thamel and a quick ride to the airport. The best thing about this hotel however is the amazing friendly staff who make you feel like you are at home, they are all very helpful and will assist you with whatever you need wether it be connecting to the free wifi or finding information about tourist attractions or shops.
Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: level three has the least wifi accessibility

I stayed at Backyard hotel for 4 nights while waiting for my flight back home. The location is great, walking distance to everything in Thamel. The room was clean, the breakfast was great and the water was hot whenever I needed it. The staff were great as well, very friendly people with whom I enjoyed to talk and ask things about the country and the city. Definitely recommended!

Though the location is great and the room is fine, there were some shortcomings. I was awoken many times during the night. When I complained in morning, I was told that the staff made noise. The room was very cold at night. Breakfast was slack and staff not professionally dressed. For the same money, go to International Guesthouse, professional staff and comfortable rooms- bliss.

Dear Guest from Ireland, Namaste!!

Greetings from Backyard Hotel!!

Thank you for the review and thank you again for your stay at hotel. It was a pleasure to be at your service and we are glad that you spent some of our valuable time to review our hotel. We truly appreciate your feedback and we will take it on a positive way. The only thing which could be unfair here and may be untrue is about the international guesthouse. You can hardly find an international guesthouse with the same money. It must be true that our night crews created noise for which you had to face this inconvenience. We are really sorry about that. We have warned all our staffs to not repeat this again and we hope we do not face this problem in the future. That's embarrassing for us that you found our breakfast not to your standard. It is disappointing that three different choices of breakfast could not satisfy you. We will definitely see what changes can be made on our breakfast menu and the ingredients too, to make our breakfast perfect. Thank you for your suggestion. For all the shortcomings we had and the discomfort you had to face on your short stay at our hotel, our team of Backyard Hotel is very sorry. We promise you that you will find everything perfect on your next visit. Thank you again for your feedback.

Kind regards,
Sunil

We stayed here before and after our treks. The hotel is in a great location in the center of Thamel. It is in a back alley off the main street which is nice. Rooms are great...neat and clean. AC cooled the room well. Hot water whenever we wanted to shower. Breakfeast on the roof top was very nice. Great value. My only negative would be the noise at night (would someone shoot that rooster that thought 3am was dawn...and it would get the dogs barking). Obviously this is beyond the control of the hotel and earplugs muffled the sound. I'm leaving the best for the last...the staff and owner. Over the top service by the friendliest and most genuine people you will ever meet. We booked our air travel from Pokhara and to/from Lukla throught the hotel's travel agency and I would highly recommend their service for this. We also took some local tours and hired their jeep to take us from Kathmandu to the start of the AC. When my wife arrived back early after EBC and they didn't have a room available, they found her another nice place close by until something opened up. They were always very helpful with information but never any pressure to use their services if we indicated we were not interested...just the way it should be. It was very much a pleasure to stay here and meet these great people. Cheers.

Great hotel, great value and even better are the helpful staff and owner. The rooms were clean and the showers were hot. We had them arrange all our flights and a couple of cars and we found the prices very reasonable. not once were we pressured to take tours with them....we were informed about what they offered but when we told them no thanks they never asked us again. I always enjoyed entering the lobby as I found everyone there very friendly.
