Great Value with Welcoming Staff

Helpful Staff, Perfect Location, and Organized Activities
The staff of Hotel Backyard was very accommodating and did everything to make sure every aspect of our trip was enjoyed and memorable. The moment we woke up for breakfast we enjoyed the warm greetings of the staff to make our meal fit to our needs. Attentiveness did not end here, but the staff were very careful to ensure my interests were met into planning each day of my stay in Nepal were satisfied. Exceptional tourist locations were chosen and timings were perfect during the day to witness and celebrations and traditions that we're going on. After a long fun filled day of sightseeing we were able to relax very comfortably in our well powered air conditioned clean room. Whenever we were met by staff, they always ensured our happiness by asking us how our day went and if we required anything (usually tea or coffee). The wifi signal was strong and present in our room and the dining area, which provided a good view of the mountain areas. Despite being in a country that was recently stricken by earthquakes, we didn't feel any effect of it at Hotel Backyard. We were just met with exceptional service, in a superb room, located at the heart of Kathmandu's tourist facilities. Thank Yu and will return!

A friendly hotel at the heart of Thamel

Staff service, location and price
We had a very pleasant stay at Hotel Backyard. We were really treated as VIP guests. The staff were very accommodating and friendly and they speak Good English. There were not so many guests at that time probably because of the post-earthquake concerns but everything has been back to normal. We did not experience or at least feel any aftershock and the restaurants and shops are all back to business. The hotel itself was very much in good condition. The heritage sites are all open, except for Changu Narayan, and they were absolutely fantastic.

Well Within Expectations

Good Location & Value
The stay was well within my expectations. Great location in a side street just off Thamel Marg. Downside is that noises from the side street can be heard very clearly & loudly from as early as 6am. I would advice that light sleepers try to get a room on the top floors (4th & 5th). However that brings me to a next downside, which is the climb up to the top floors can be a minor hassle to some. Still, I suppose the above are to be had in any hotels in Thamel area in the same price bracket. Not major issues to me at all. I would recommend this hotel to value seekers.

too noisy at night

the heater, the view on top at breakfast, staffs
I was given a room on the second floor of the old building (right above the lobby). It was very noisy. I could hear people talking, telephone ringing, dog barking all through the night. This might not be a problem for other people but if you are a light sleeper and arrived after many hours on a flight, the lack of sleep can make things you see the next day not very interesting

Good location, Friendly and helpful staff

good location, friendly hotel staff
The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Sunil, Siri and the other guy who wears a Cap(forgot his name) who helped us with our bags to the bus station. The place is good easy access and quite close at the Thamel center with lots of shops and restaurants. Upon arriving we were offered by their hot milk tea which is nice. The room itself is just ok, basic, clean sheets and comfy beds. The only setback is they dont have any room heater so we slept with our socks and gloves on, we stayed there during the last month of winter. So it gets very cold at night. They do have a hot shower which is good, but constant power shortage happens which is very normal for Nepal.
