One of the things Nepal is famous for is the hospitality of its citizens. And the Backyard Hotel in Kathmandu is the place where you can truly experience that. Every guest can feel special here, I believe. The hotel has very friendly and helpful staff. Another good point is that, it seems, the staff is a really good team where...
