Stayed at the shack for 3 nights with my wife in mid July, lovely setting in brand new bamboo huts, great food both for breakfast and evening dinners, The manager Alexia looked after us well and Pong the boatman is a hoot with a great sense of humour..

After 6 days in Hanoi and 6 days in Saigon – this was the most magnificent getaway away from the noises in the city. Got an air conditioned bus from Saigon to Can Tho – the trip was most enjoyable and comfortable. The minute we got to Nguyen Shack we were welcomed with the most friendly staff. The whole lay...

We spent 2 nights near the end of our holiday at Nguyen Shack. As soon as we arrived we felt relaxed and at home. The hosts were lovely and welcoming. We were given a refreshing, homemade lime juice on arrival while we checked in a straight away got chatting to everyone. We booked on a sunset tour, which would have... More

This was our second stop on our tour of the Mekong and we couldn't have been happier. The accommodation was nuts but brilliant; the rooms are completely open with a view onto the river with dual hammocks. The food was consistently great. Wifi was also really good (strong enough for Netflix). The staff were also consistently brilliant. Everyone spoke excellent... More

After 6 days in Siagon and Nha Trang, the shack was the most fantastic idyllic place to recharge batteries. We booked for 2 nights but could have stayed longer. People are fantastic, my daughter loved the animals and food - especially the catfish and chips!... Highly recommended..

The Nguyen Shack is a peaceful retreat in a very busy surrounding, only a few minutes from the bustling streets of Can Tho. The bungalows are fantastic, each has a large terrace with a hammock overlooking a small river. The immediate area is very secluded, you feel like in the middle of nature, eventhough the city is very close. The... More

My partner and I were very satisfied with our stay at Nguyen Shack in Can Tho. The hospitality was exceptional and everything involved, from booking to organizing transport to the guesthouse, was relatively seamless. A few highlights of the stay were: the morning tour to the floating markets and local land market using the guesthouse's boat. I have been to... More

We caught a boat and were told we were the first to arrive by the river. Cost three times a taxi but we cruised the back steams before arriving. Great people, rooms and food. All the tours, bicycle, sunset cruise, floating markets were terrific. The guides english was terrific and she learns a new word every day. (Stubby Holder was... More
