Backpacker Accomodation in Phnom Penh
22nd September, 2008
I trying to look for area where all backpacker joint is, looks to me it scattered everywhere in Pnomh Penh. Rather in HCMC - Pham Ngu Lao, Siem Reap - Old Market are. Any suggestion where should I stay during my trip to PP?

actually, in PP, a lot of backpackers go to the Boeung Lake.
You will find many guesthouses, restaurants, and all facilities for tourists there.
The rooms and food are cheaper than siem reap, but most of the accomodation are ugly, well, were, because i went there 2 years ago, so maybe it changed.
Anyway, this is the backpackers place in PP.
Have a good trip.

I guess lakeside and Boeung Lake is the same place.. I was there once to play some pool. It is infested to the brim with backpackers who want to travel to far away places only to stay with other backpackers and avoid locals and local culture..
Hehe.. Sorry. That was a bit negative. It is actually a nice area with very cheap accommodation. I think you can get rooms as low as $5 a night. A lot of small cozy bars in the area as well. I got a little put off by all the people trying to sell you drugs there though. If you are looking for a cheap room in a "western-orientated" area this is the area to stay :)

Lakeside remains the main backpacker scene (for now), with the area around Narin Guesthouse being the second main area people stay.
