Very nice place, the staff is wonderful and very helpful, and the breakfast on the rooftop terrace is a great start of your day.

I really enjoyed staying at Backyard Hotel, the staff are really welcoming and helpful. The hostel rooms are designed really well, the internet works a treat and there are so many happy smiling travellers staying there. Thanks for all the Nepalese tea! I loved staying here so much that I'll continue to stay here when I cone back through Kathmandu over the next 2months.
