“Recommend this hotel for great location, excellent performance-price ratio and thoughtful service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

I went this hotel on Oct national holiday with a crowd of donkey friends (12 people). Heard from the tour leader that she chose it as it was highly recommended at qyer.com, and turns out it isn't wrong.

The hotel locates in the Thamel Street, which could make you easily to do shopping, you can also choose to have the breakfast at the top floor and order a cup of coffee to enjoy the sunrise. The hotel staff are very kind and thoughtful, among of them to mention Sudarshan who played a local guide to us when we do need someone like this, he studied our draft travel plan and gave lots of constrictive suggestions, he also proactively kept in touch with us to check if has any emergencies on the whole plan when we were at Pokhara and Patan.

We stayed here in December before our trek and had the budget room with 2 single beds, was quite small and beds weren't that great but we only needed the room for sleeping in so weren't bothered, breakfast was good. When we returned we didn't book through agoda we just turned up and for the same price as the budget room they gave us a bigger one with its own bathroom. Room was comfortable (nothing fancy) and bathroom was good. The water was only hot if the power was on (no gas) but I think you would get this anywhere in Kathmandu with the frequent power cuts - take a shower when you can! The location is great, just a 20 second walk to the Main Street in Thamel and the free airport pickup was awesome. Probably not for you if your used to nice hotels this is for a traveller on a budget but for the price we paid we were happy

I stayed for a week in Backyards hotel when i was on a small trip to Nepal with my partner. It was an amazing trip for both of us. Besides, the hotel does the free airport pick up and drop off and also free wi-fi. Amazing hospitality and view from roof top. I would recommend to anyone and i will definitely stay in my next visit. Over all a good value for money.

I stayed there one night in Kathmandu when I arrived.
It is located at the middle of Thamel so the location was quiet nice to venture Kathmandu. However the room I stayed in was freezing and had no heater. I was not prepared for this thinking naturally that a heater would be included and barely slept that night bcs of the cold.
But besides this it was okay I guess especially the hotel staff were super nice and helpful. And the taxi tour reserved for Kathmandu thru backyard was highly recommendable ( however if ur going to reserve a taxi tour in pokhara , u should ask several times for a driver who speaks English!!! Our driver in pokhara didn't speak any English which made our tour very difficult) hope my comment help ppl who plan to travel in nepal^^

Dear Guest from Hong Kong, Namaste!!

Greetings from Backyard Hotel!!

Thank you for the review and thank you again for your stay at our hotel. It was a pleasure to be at your service. Hope you had a great time here in Nepal and at Backyard, beside the cold room you had to sleep in for two nights. We are very sorry for what you had to go through at our hotel and we had no idea about your discomfort until today. That is really embarrassing for us. Upgrading your room would be the only option to solve this because the budget rooms have no heaters like the other category rooms, and we have usually done that in the past and mostly a free upgrade.

We are really grateful to get your feedback and attention on our hotel. We will surely take this seriously and find out a way out to solve this problem and not make other future guests face this inconvenience anymore. We promise you to not have this same problem on your next visit. Thanking you again.

Warm Regards,
SUNIL

This is a great place. I stayed here with my friends in my last Kathamndu visit. The rooms were spacious and clean. The staff were cordial. They served good breakfast also....but i do not remember if it was complimentary.... Definitely recommended guys!
