Very easy to get to HCMC centre district 1 from the airport. Go to ATM and take out some Dong. Exit airport to the right about 100m there's the green buses. Take the 152 to Ben Thanh direct to district 1. Costs 5000 dong (about £0.30 / $0.50). Takes about 30mins. Hassle free, very friendly and helpful drivers. Highly recommend.

I used this service after arriving from Da Nang in the middle of a weekday, and can highly recommend.
The bus was boarded outside the Domestic Terminal opposite Highlands Coffee, and it appears to be a reliable frequent service. There were helpful, friendly staff at the bus stop to sell tickets, and assist English speaking foreigners, and also on the bus itself.
As I know HCM fairly well it was super convenient as I knew exactly where I was going and where to get off. But the staff onboard were VERY helpful to some first-time visitors on the bus, even providing precise directions to their hotel as they left the bus.
Currently the roads in HCM between the Airport and District 1 are at almost gridlock due to major works, including the ongoing construction of a Metro Train network.
Therefore, taxis and private transport options do not offer any advantage over the bus, and in fact, may even be the opposite as taxis are inclined to seek out short cuts that turn out to be the opposite.
An airport bus link in HCM is long overdue and it will only improve in time. But for now it is perfectly acceptable and far cheaper than taxis or other alternatives.
My only suggestion for improvement in the short term would be to provide more seats for passengers which I think could be done simply, without compromising luggage space.
