I stayed in the 4 bed dorm in backyard hotel. One of the best dorm rooms I've stayed in. There's a plug, small light, and smaller locker by each bed. With a big locker elsewhere in the room. Nice big wooden bunks, with stairs not a ladder! Staff at back yard are great, very friendly and helpful. There's a rooftop terrace where they serve food too. It's also in a great location in Thamel. Although a little tricky to find first time. I recommend getting them to book the taxi for you ;) :)


Can't complain at all. Great and helpful manager! Will come again!


Stayed here on two separate occasions in October 2015 in between trekking trips and will be coming back again for sure. Staff are fantastic and very helpful and the cafe on the roof is brilliant with decent food. Great location tucked away off the main road and security guard on the door. Was able to do washing for a small charge and leave gear here at the hostel while I was out trekking for no cost. All in all great place and friendly atmosphere, will be back again soon.
