“Awesome place!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here multiple times! Great atmosphere and super welcoming!! It literally becomes my home away from home. The staff is always willing to help you out in any way possible. They have a travel agency attached but they are never pushy just informative. This is SUPER helpful being that I'm a female that travels alone. And whenever Icome to Kathmandu this is where i always stay!

I stayed at the hotel before and after my EBC trek. Everyone at the hotel is super friendly, always smiling and they know you by name (even after 15 days). I walked in and out of the hotel as if it was my home. And the location is so perfect to everywhere! I highly recommend

The hotel and staff are awesome. Spent a couple of nights here after trek and it was a real pleasure. Plenty of accomodation options, new interiors, clean rooms. Even such extras as air conditioners and tvs are averywhere. Very high rooftop with the nice view of kathmandu valley! Nice to seat and relax there. Also, whilst the hotel is in the center of thamel but not on the main streets, so no horns or other motorcycle noises can disturb your sleep )))

But i'd emphasize the clients service here again. It's the best. You can get free nepali tea / cofee / water anytime. We were also presented with a bottle of domestic rakshi from hotel's director mom )))
All the personel are very helpful and can solve any issue you have and help with trek organisation. They also run a travel agency in the same place, so you can also arrange your trek here and issue all the permits, whatever..

Durga, the director of the hotel, has provided a great deal for us for heli flight to lukla. It was asewome!! And cost near to nothing!

Many thanks to you guys! We were so pleased to stay here. For all your efforts and help. And will return to you another time for sure!!

I stayed here for a couple of days during my work at Kathmandu. The hotel staffs (especially Sunil Manandhar, the Manager) and the hospitality was amazing. I location is very central and all the restaurants and shops are in walking distance. I'd gladly recommend them.

Got word of this hotel from Tripadvisor . We wanted something reasonably priced (by Kathmandu standards) that could act as a comfortable base to center our activities in the hustle of the Thamel district. We spent over a week there and made friends with all the very friendly and helpful staff...we could not have asked for more given the circumstances of Kathmandu mains power shortages prominent among them. . But the water was hot, rooms clean, room service unexpectedly prompt (our morning and evening milk coffee order became an amusement for the staff). There is no restaurant (doesn't need to be in this area) but breakfast is served on the roof top with a wonderful view of the Kathmandu skyline. We did much of our travel bookings through the hotel and everything went according to plan in Pokhara and Chitwan. The hotel driver was great and took us around town as well as too and from the airport. Management did their best for us and we valued the hospitality shown by Mr Durka and his team. Both unexpected and appreciated.. RECOMMENDED

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony...good for people watching. Get a room at least on the third floor or h...

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
