Just pop if on the off chance first night in PP. Such a great atmosphere and friendly welcoming staff. Have been back several times. Happy hour 16:00 till 19:00. Must visit if you near by and add your country's score to the bunker board ( requires and 'grenade' shooter).

Had such high expectations after reading reviews, but we're a little disappointed. Pros: staff are super friendly. Beds are very comfortable. Bedding was clean. Cons: the room itself clearly never gets cleaned, especially behind the beds. Sink was blocked when we arrived. Air Con is in dire need of servicing (even on coolest setting it barely cools the room). No Wi-Fi available in the room. It's also the first guest house we've come across that doesn't have a printer (even for a charge) which is a pain if you need tickets printed. Although this place is cheap, it's not good value for money. Pay a couple of dollars more and get a better room.

The staff and owners here are brilliant people. Immediately you feel welcome and are offered a drink and a bite to eat. They will let you know where to go and what to do and they help you get an understanding of the local lay out. The young lady at the bar told us the first night we went out to look after our stuff so it wouldn’t get stolen. Priceless information. Reasonably priced and very clean, no plugs in your room but plenty at the bar. Cleanest guesthouse I have visited. Had a lot of fun cheers guys!

This place is simply amazing. Just the friendliest staff you'll ever meet who will welcome you into the Gecko family with open arms. Todd and John have created an amazing guesthouse with such a welcoming vibe. Great downstairs bar and restaurant with good food and cheap drinks. We were so bummed to have to leave Lazy Gecko; we could've easily stayed for much longer if we'd had the time. We miss you guys already and can't wait til we are back in Phnom Penh to stay again.
