1Do you mean in Phnom Phen or elsewhere because rate will vary according to city
I am not sure how I would clasify the "average cambodian" but if you were to stay with a family in a village then I am sure you could find somewhere for a couple of US$ per night +food
In the towns and cities given it is easy to find accomodation in guesthouse/hotels from $5 upwards then I would imagine you would find a room with a family for that

3When I was in Siem Riep earlier this year I looked at a room for &60/ month & it seemed perfectly acceptable although I would have probably paid an extra $10 to be on the quieter 1st floor.
Anyhow I was just playing around as really I've no desire to stay anywhere other than Sihanukville. Here you will get a reasonable room with cable Tv , private bathroom etc for $100/ month.
A really nice room, with sea view, private balcony & all the trimmings starts about $150/ month.
If budgets a concern you can still get a room with bathroom & cable TV for $50/ month but it's in a local area & you will get woken at 6am & have little or no privacy.
As to Phnom Penh, I really don't have a clue but for sure you can at least double those prices.

5#4 matydasasys - I'm not sure about the place in Siem Riep but suspect your right & water & electric costs would have been extra.
However the prices I quoted in Sihanukville includes the water & electric charges. Obviously if you want to buy a fridge/ fridge freezer or similar then they will charge extra to compensate for the power usage (my hotel quoted me $10 extra per month if I buy a fridge/ freezer - which seems very reasonable).
