Great place to stay, felt like an adventure just getting to our room across the swinging bridge and past all the banana and papaya trees. Room was very comfortable with mosquito nets over the beds; everything made of bamboo, outdoor private shower (with bonus frog one night!), hammocks on the verandah overlooking the river, drinking water provided. Staff were very...

We stayed at the Shacks for 2 nights after flying into crazy HCMC the night before, and regret not staying a third. The Shacks were just a lovely combination of relaxation and introduction to rural Vietnam. Shacks are bamboo and open with a lovely deck with hammocks overlooking the Mekong, lovely spot to just chill and watch the world. Our...

A vibrant place, away from the city centre but not too far, and honestly why staying in the centre if you can have a lovely and relaxing room, with great local food and friendly and helpful staff. The tours they offer are highly recommended.

Bad hospitality from staff. I dont know how they could work in tourism with their serious face. We found this place thank to one of my friends who stayed at Shack before, it was not as what we expected. Our room was near by the restaurant which is always noisy by staff talk. When I asked for the food at...

This place is fantastic. Run by Cai and his energetic team, the Shack is so well organized. From getting help to get there, to going on amazing trips within the area that both kids and adults enjoyed, to putting on an amazing Christmas Eve celebratory feast. The accommodation is basic but so relaxing with hammocks on the deck of your...

Our time at the Nguyen Shack in Can Tho was one of the highlights of our trip in the Mekong Delta and was the perfect way of experiencing the real Vietnam. While there we enjoyed boat rides, visits to the floating markets, incredible tours, bike rides and special visits to local businesses and food producers. Based outside of Can Tho...

We spent two nights here but would have preferred three. Nothing beats relaxing in a hammock overlooking the River after a boat ride and a tasty meal. Except perhaps the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff at Nguyen Shack! Our only suggestion for improvement would be to have a sign-up list for the excursions. Currently they accommodate everyone who wants...

Great accommodation in tropical setting, cool bamboo huts (basic but very clean and extremely well maintained). Very lovely staff that are extremely helpful and friendly and fantastic tour guides taking you to the floating markets with great local knowledge and lots of interesting explanations. Highly recommended!

Everything was just as expected! The bungalows are open to the elements and so peaceful. We went on the sunrise floating market tour and the bicycle tour. Both of which were highlights of our trip. Peter and Rose were wonderful. Answered all of our questions and made our stay so much fun! We stayed in the bungalow right next to...
