Room clean but dated. Shower below average. Staff very helpful and friendly.. Close proximity to shopping and restaurants. 6 storey and no lift which was a hassle. All in all I would class it 6 out of 10.

First of all, the staff working at the hotel is very helpful and friendly. Even though it was my first time staying there, it was like I was a regular. My room was a good size, clean, and everything was in working order. I really like the rooftop restaurant, but the breakfast menu can be improved, I think. The hotel...

Really good, helpful staff & good location. The wifi was no good though which was frustrating. There are good bars/cafes/restaurants nearby. The hotel room service food is good too. *Momos are great here.

The hotel is great and in a super convenience location for exploring Thamel and setting off for your Nepal adventures. But the real stars here are the staff, they are so friendly and really looked after me! Travelling solo can be scary, but these guys were super stars and make me feel completely comfortable.

We stayed at Backyard hotel for a total of 7 days. Very friendly and great staff, very helpful. The room was lovely, with good tv channels and the breakfast in a morning, really appetising. The staff there also held all of our bags for 10 days while we completed the E.B.C trek. The location is smack in the centre of...

Room provided was not as expected at first. It was small and you have to climb up the bed just to close the drapes or the window. It was that small. So they transferred me to a much better suite after a couple of days. Stairs would be an issue as I was located at the 4th floor so I...

“Ask for lower floor if you don't want to do stairs.”

“Stay in the middle floors like 2nd floor. Just enough stairs going down and going up t the restaurant.”

“1. Select a room in the middle floors to avoid too much climbing for breakfast. 2. Each floor has a balcony room which is better”
