So friendly and peaceful. Quite a contrast to the city. English speaking hosts who are eager for you to make the most of your journey. Eco tourism is a bonus. Wifi is excellent. Prices of beer and food here is very cheap. I love it

We stayed there for 3 nights and also joined in all the activities with 3 different tour guides at the Shack. Floating market and Bike ride were nice, food tour was so so, because our guide did not very good at English speaking. And the reason why I give low point for this Shack is because of the cook.

Nguyen Shack at Can Tho was one of the best parts of my recent trip to Cambodia and Vietnam. The bungalows are great, better than I expected. But the real prize here is the staff and local activities they organise for you. The food tour into Can Tho is great fun as is the bike ride around the local villages.... More

Booked two bungalows. When we arrived there was only one bungalow and one basic room, which doesn't have a private bath. The staff was friendly about it, but Ended up having both couples stay in single bungalow. Unsatisfied with a mere $10 of the bill due to their mess up. Floating market tour was nice, but no need to do... More

Wonderful place, wonderful staff! The place is beautiful, people were more than friendly and helpful, rooms are clean, bathrooms have shampoos and soaps (not the cheap once ;)), you also get complementary snacks. Make sure you go to a water market in the morning- beautiful and tasty experience, it's a great tour, you can learn a lot and it's not... More

To get here we took a green taxi from the FUTA bus station which cost 100 000vnd for the journey. When we arrived we were welcomed by kind and smiling faces of the shack. After a welcome drink of homemade lime juice we were shown to our dorm room over the bridge. The room was clean and had mosquito nets... More

We stayed here for two nights in a bungalow and loved the feel and setup of the place. I've rated this four stars because the setting is really tranquil, staff lovely, the bungalows and restaurant are tastefully designed and the food and tours on a whole were good value. However the location of our particular bungalow detracted from our stay... More

We stayed 3 nights. We have been in the nguyen shack in Ninh Binh before. This place though is a bit different: The main room is a bit smaller and it certainly helps to get closer in contact with anyone. If you like to stay for your own, this is still possible. In this place they offer more tours organized... More

We knew it was going to be a brilliant stay from the start, it was so homely -although not an actual homestay, we were greeted by Hung who was so chirpy and friendly, we really appreciated the ice lemon drink after the long trip to Can Tho!

“Pay the extra and get a private bungalow. They are beautiful. It is rustic living but they make you feel so close to nature. It provides an experience you cant get in a normal hotel. Bring mosquito spray and a translator app for your phone because most people in the area don't speak English. ”
