Reviewed May 4, 2014

We stayed for almost a month in the Backyard Hotel and would highly recommened it. From the moment we arrived at 23 after a long flight, the airport service picked us up and in the hotel they allowed us to first rest and arrange all things later. The staff was immediately very friendly, and this has stayed so ever since.

We also booked a guided trek and tibet trip through the hotel's agency, black diamond. And even though I always recommend to get multiple price quotes, they were consistently competitive.

Furthermore, from the many conversations, the free coffee or tea service to the room to the great breakfast rooftop, we really felt at home here. And if we needed some extra help, like finding a shoemaker, a goodpriced renting agency for sleeping bags, a last minute bus to Lumbini, or a storage room to put our bags during treks, they always helped.

Thank you very much for a great stay, Jeroen and Maru

The rooms were nice, reasonably clean and hotel staff were nice.
But in two days we got our room price down from $40USD a night to $25, and there was probably more wiggle room.
It was a decent hotel, great location. But definitely ask about making the prices more competitive.

Dear Guest from Australia, Namaste!!

Greetings from Backyard Hotel!!

Thank you for the review and thank you again for choosing our hotel. It was a pleasure to be at your service. We are glad that you were quite satisfied with our hotel and service, apart from the discount we gave you. We look forward to accommodate you again in future and provide even better service.
It is disappointing though, that you got it wrong. We never thought, providing discount would cost us more than just the discount. We will never promote to not pay online, but you should realize that direct bookings have lower costs than the ones made via third party, though it was not totally a similar case with you. The room we transferred you to after two nights though looked similar, was not the same but still more expensive than what you paid for sure. It was a discounted rate as you did promise for a long stay. We had doubts on you when you disappeared from the hotel without any notice later though promising a long stay and we are now shocked to get this on your review.

But for sure, we will take your review in a positive way. Guest reviews have always been our teachers which help us to improve. It is great that you managed few precious minutes of your life for us. We will try what we can to avoid this kind of situation in the future. All the best to you.

Thank you
Sunil

I stayed at Backyard Hotel for 5 weeks while I volunteered at a Buddhist monastery in Kathmandu.
I sent an email to get a price for a long term stay and got a quick reply and good price. I also got an airport pick up. The guy waited for me even though there was a long delay.
The location is great. It is in the heart of Thamel but by a backyard road so it is quiet. They have hot showers 24/7. There is good breakfast that you can eat at the rooftop restaurant while enjoying the great view. The rooms are clean, tidy and comfy.
The best thing about the hotel is the staff. Everyone I met was extremely nice and friendly. They were always willing to help with anything. It almost felt like home. I highly recommend it and will stay there again.

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.

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 :)
