We stayed at the Backyard in April 2014 at the last day of our journey in Nepal, Backyard Hotel is another enjoyable stay at Kathmandu, Rooms are very comfortable after a long day walking, Breakfast in the rooftop is also the best,
staff very friendly, nice and helpful. Location of Back Yard Hotel in the center of thamel area is the best. We love Nepal and we will be back.

Stayed: April 2014

Backyard Hotel is situated in a very nice place in Kathmandu, in Thamel, close to the center of the city. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable, hot and cold water, nice view. I also liked very much a terrasse where we could take breakfast in the morning and tea/coffee at any time during a day. The Staff was very polite, nice and helped us much with changing money, indicating nice places to visit in Kathmandu and so on. I warmly recommend Backyard hotel as a very agreable place to stay in. Thank you once again!

Backyard Inn sits comfortably in a quiet corner of the streets that line Thamel, it's location is highly convenient. The staff is incredibly helpful and accommodating, they went out of their way to help us. The rooms are cosy and warm, i slept like a baby during my stay. I recommend Backyard Inn hotel as a well worthy option for accommodation. Enjoy your stay in Nepal :)

Long awaited review: went to Kathmandu for a short trip mid 2013. Was apprehensive at first but all went well. From the airport pick-up to check-in, all went smoothly.

Off the main streets in Thamel, great location and convenient + safe. The standard room had a double bed, clean and tidy room. Dim lit, there was wifi. One of taps I turned on could not turn off and it was about to leak into the bedroom when luckily one of the bell boys got to it within minutes.

Blsckouts were normal, but hot showers were just enough and perfect for colder mornings and nights.

Sunil and Durga were very very extremely helpful. Especially with room bookings and tour bookings. All the staff were exceptional. Always attentive and very friendly. Felt like a second home.

Will definitely stay here again!!!

Right in the heart of Thamel, central Khatmandu, yet nicely located in a back yard road away from the noise, the Backyard hotel is a place that I can recommend with no reservations.
My room was very clean even for european standards and so in my opinion it was good value for money; breakfast is included in the price. You can surely find cheaper places to stay in Thamel/Kathmandu but if you want a clean place at a decent price then look no further.
On top of that, the staff at the hotel was extremely nice and ALWAYS very helpful.
Durgarel, the owner, and the whole team (Chandan and Sunil in the main office/travel agency, Sagar and Subash at the reception, and the little Ramish at the rooftop bar) was great.
I will definitively go back to the Backyard hotel when in Kathmandu again.
Five stars.

Room Tip: Room 203 was good.

If you're looking to stay in the heart of the city and are on a budget, this is your place. The staff was so exceptionally warm and helpful, it felt like family. They went out of their way to help us out with every little thing. The rooms are clean, and of a decent size. They also have a rooftop restaurant/bar where you can chill at any time of the day or night. You walk down 20 meters and you are right in Thamel, all the bars and restaurants are just walking distance. Overall a brilliant experience. Staff just takes the cake!
