We cannot say enough wonderful things about this guesthouse!! My friend and I stayed there 2 separate times on our trip, both were amazing. The food was amazing, the beds extremely comfortable, Johnny and Todd hilarious, informative, and incredible helpful. You definitely won't regret staying here!

Best location at only a 5 minute walk to the Roysl a Palace and river, brand new beautiful remodel and super staff. Owners were amazing and a wealth of knowledge not only about Phnom Penh, but all of Cambodia. Rooms were good size and squeaky clean. Great bar with a lively local following and excellent food being served daily. DJ's... More

The place is designed tastefully,the restaurant is excellent and the atmosphere is great for just chilling and drinking a beer in the evening. The guy in the reception,Todd, probably the... More

Lazy Gecko scores a 10 from me in all regards. Extremely clean, comfy, airy and well-lit rooms for the price tag. The staff here are all extremely helpful, friendly and chilled. The joint has a real family vibe. The kitchen churns out some mad feeds and the music playing downstairs is pretty hard to fault. Lazy Gecko is situated in... More

Very nice place with welcoming and friendly staff! Good location too. Very clean room (cleanest one we've seen in 2 months of travel in southern asia) but we haven't seen dorms. We've had à good time ! Go there without hesitation!

The lazy gecko is a must see for anyone visiting phnom penh. It feels like a family dinner crossed with an episode of cheers. They get the vinyls spinning and thumb less george grinning (beneath his iron mask of course).

After traveling for over 7 months in SE Asia, I can tell that Lazy Gecko is so far the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Clean rooms, nice food, great location, friendly and helpful staff... The dorms have AC and big beds, even the bathroom is inside the dorm. The atmosphere of the place is very chilled, mostly expats... More

Wish we could have stayed here longer! Great drinks, awesome people, good vibes, murals on the walls on the way up to the dorms, overall awesomeness. Todd is fantastic and it doesn't hurt to be greeted by Eric(the puppy), either. Can't wait to come back to Phnom Penh to stay here again.
