                Very unprofessional!! They canceled my reservation with a absurd reason. I was with senior people and they took us to different hotel for the night. Though, the hotel they took us was disaster. I don’t recommend this hotel to anyone. Hotel could have told us they have interior problem before we reach kathmandu.

                The hotel is good. At good location and affordable price. When we arrived at the hotel we came to know they dont have any record regarding my booking at their system. I showed them the confirmation. Then they said they got some problem in the system. And they were helpful and proposed us to share 2 triple room instead of 3, we were 9. After a hour they us our 3 room. In the system they offered Airport Transfer (1 Way). When we asked them to drop us. They told they only provide pick up service. Even though that uas not mentioned when I booked. Then I had to pay for that. Otherwise Hotel was good

                Overall our stay was a pleasure, staff was very friendly & kind to help ( even carried our luggage to our room) organisied us a taxi to the airport etc... breakfast was fine aswell, but nothing special, same as everywhere.. room was very clean, we had a little balcony, location is great, in the middle of thamel, shops restaurants bars, everything is just 1min away, really enjoyed our stay & we even got a goodbye present, the only negative point was the wifi, didn’t work properly in our room, but maybe the fixed it meanwhile, cheers to the great staff

                You pay for the price. We have been to different hotels in Nepal. Room is in good size. Rooms are clean but beddings and towels are not. The shower area is moldy. It's all fine knowing that you are in Nepal. Understandable! But the thing we dont like is the receptionist. He is not polite and sarcastic. We need to leave early for Pokhara and they said they will provide pack breakfast.. well they did not! No recommendation.

The Hotel is ok if you want Something cheap and you are not picky about cleanless, we stayed there two nights, the Bad was not nice but you hot hot water. We found unser our bed old cup of tea, the towels where dirty and they left an old t-shirt there. People where very kind thought and they have a breakfast where you can choose between 4 Options.

                Superb Small Hotel that gets my 100% vote”
                Since 1999 I have stayed at many small hotels in Kathmandu (I do research on bird migration each October-Nov-Dec) - mostly all in the $10-$25/day USD. Hotel Backyard is at the top of the list because it gets so many things done well such as: (a) internet works fast, even when the hotel is completely full; (b) hot water is really hot (but make sure to take your shower in the afternoon or early evening...from 5am to 9am you will get warm water simply because so many people are getting ready to catch a bus/plane in the morning...and this is true of every hotel I have stayed at in Nepal. Also, the solar panels heat the water greatly in the afternoon as well); (c) free pick-up (or drop-off) at the airport in a large jeep (my experience) and not a small taxi...wonderful experience; (d) breakfast - good choice of options included (for me) in price of hotel; (d) polite and very efficient staff who will make up your room if you ask...or solve problems quickly; and finally (e) TV works 100% fine with CNN and other news shows..not a large TV but it gets all the stations just fine. Anyway, for a small hotel this place works well and though it may be tough to find at first (set off on a side street near Yak Restaurant) it is great value for the money (take the phone number and give to your taxi driver if not being picked up directly by hotel staff in their jeep). Agoda price for this place is the best - book in advance because many people know about this hotel now. Expect to pay about $20 USD/night though you can find it as a special on Agoda for approx. 20% less. Highly recommended - you won't find a better value hotel in Kathmandu and I have stayed at a lot of places...trust me on this one.

                Great location and staff”
                We stayed here after trekking for 9 days in the Himalaya. We were an all-adult family of 9, staying in rooms as couples or solo. The hotel staff was incredibly nice and helpful our entire stay. We had to checkout hours before we had to go to the airport and they let us store all of our bags at the hotel. The hotel is very clean and the hot water and wifi are reliable! My only negative comment is about the restaurant. I had about 15 minutes before meeting my family downstairs in the lobby so I asked the restaurant how long an order of momos would take. I was told 5 minutes. I ordered momos and two drinks. The drinks came about 15 minutes later. I kept going back over and asking every 15 minutes since my family was waiting for me. I asked if too late to cancel, it was. I asked if I could get them to go, the answer was no. I even considered just paying and leaving without the momos because I did not have time. Every time I asked, I kept being told 5 more minutes. The momos took a total of 50 minutes between the time I ordered and I received them. That is a lot longer than the 5 minutes I was told. If they take a while, that is no problem, I just wouldn't have ordered them in a rush. They were delicious though!
