Nice little place to stay. Staff attentive and very friendly. Basic breakfast but nice options available. Great coffee! Clean rooms and nice eco/ bamboo theme. Good price and great location on quiet back street off busy junction.

About
Description
Nguyen Shack - Saigon is situated on a small alley in the center of Ho Chi Minh City. We expend our successful concept from countryside's location in Can Tho and Ninh Binh into the metropole. We bring with us More the nature to the city with a decoration made of bamboo and a big variety of plants. Here you can find the peaceful and quiet atmosphere unique to Nguyen Shack concept, right in the middle of Ho Chi Minh downtown. Less

Hi - like the other people who have replied, I don’t remember there being a safe in our room. I think we locked our passports in our suitcases. Sorry I can’t be more helpful. Have a great trip.
