First of all the two guys were nice and the room was clean, but they should've told us about the building site about 30 meters from our room. Woke me up at 6.30 and I'm a heavy sleeper. At first I literally thought someone was banging pans against each other but it turned out to be just behind the guesthouse....

Located close to Riverside, this guesthouse and bar is a hidden pearl. (Not so hidden anymore). After new owners took over in 2016 the place has gone through a major renovation. No detail has been forgotten. The staff is a mix of people from Cambodia , Australia and the US. When you walk in to the gecko, it does not...

Wonderful friendly atmosphere, super clean rooms and delicious food from the kitchen. The place's atmosphere, the owners, the staff, in fact the entire beautiful Gecko family (Éric-The-Dog being a big plus too) are all part of a guaranteed and so sweet memorable experience. All-in-all, truly the greatest place I could've landed at arriving for the first time in Phnom Penh....

We have spent 2 nights at the Lazy Gecko Guesthouse and enjoyed it. The owners are welcoming and friendly. The bar downstairs is really nice and the breakfast is great. Due to the fact, that the Lazy Gecko Guesthouse was scarcely sold to the new owners not all parts of the guesthouse are refurbished yet and it still needs a...

We've stayed in countless guesthouses and hostels in South East Asia, but nothing compares to the Lazy Gecko. This place caters for everyone with clean comfortable private rooms and dorms, as well as a spacious well stocked bar and restaurant downstairs. What makes this place so special though, are the knowledgable managers and staff who are really committed to providing...

Hard to put into words how much I love this place. Dave, Todd and all the guys at the gecko made us never want to leave. We only managed to when we ended up going on to Kampot with the crew! It's people that make a place and I've never felt happier (or more hungover) anywhere because of these guys....

Awesome guesthouse that is kept to the highest standard of cleanliness (especially in the dorms). The food is amazing and of fair price. You cannot ask for a better location only 2 min walk to the royal palace and riverside. The staff are amazing and very helpful. The bar and restaurant area is perfect for meeting other travellers and sharing...

We stayed at The Lazy Gecko for 5 days and Dave made sure to have us feeling at home from the moment we walked in.
