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...

The hotel staff were amazing.Nothing is too much trouble for them. First night the room was noisy. It was no problem we were moved the next day to quieter rooms. Breakfast currently is on the rooftop which is a lot of stairs to climb per day however there is a much move to have this downstairs soon. A new bar...

This hotel is located in the wonderful Thamel area of Kathmandu so there is plenty to see and do within walking distance. Set inside a small alley the hotel is a lovely oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the main streets. The rooms are comfortable, spacious, and clean and the breakfast every morning was delicious. The only complaint...

This was my second visit to the Backyard Hotel in three years. It is now better than ever. 1.Search closely for the airport pickup. There are many taxi's and drivers outside of the airport terminal who will say "yes' if you ask if they are from the Backyard. Sadly, they lie. So keep looking for your ride from the hotel!...

“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”
