We stayed two nights and three days at Nguyen Shack and our only complaint is that we could not have stayed...forever. It is a very well-run and fun place to stay. We are on an around the world trip so we have had our fair share to compare. The owner Maxim was around, such a nice, kind, amazing guy and... More

The staff are fantastic, very chatty, friendly and helpful. We went on 3 tours, a morning market tour, an evening food tour and a... More

Theu & Maxime do a great job and make you feel right at home. What a great spot to relax, enjoy some nice food and a few cold beers. Accommodation was more than adequate and something different for the family to experience. We enjoyed borrowing the bikes and going on a little local adventure. Thanks so much to the entire... More

I can't say enough good things about Nguyen Shack. Staying here was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! There are not enough superlatives in the world! The welcome and greeting by the user-friendly staff. The beautiful setting. The gorgeous houses and furniture. The kittens. Bacon the pig. The FOOD - the best food I have ever eaten!... More

As a family we stayed in one of the bamboo bungalows overlooking the river. Beautiful, scenic environment swinging in a hammock watching the river drop with the tide and then the water level rising. The rope bridge to the main restaurant symbolises the unique character of Nguyen Shack- off the tourist trail and in a friendly, welcoming home. We did... More

We stayed there over Christmas time and it was perfect. Everyone in the family enjoyed it. While we were relaxing with a drink and a book, there were cats and a dog for the children to play with. The rooms are wonderful, very genuin and relaxing. We took a bicycle tour with Lilly and it was one of the highlights... More

Sadly only had 1 night here as I had to get back to HCMC, but managed to fit in the sunset boat tour, the early morning visit to the floating and land markets, and the bicycle tour of the local area. Wasn't much time left for the hammocks after all this! But all the tours were great, particularly the bicycle... More

The property itself is very nice. We chose it because of the good reviews found here. In fact after visiting Can Tho and floating market I have to say that staying in Can Tho itself would not make any sense at all, as the city itself is like any other. But this hotel did make a feeling of little Paradise... More
