    Really cool, authentic stay on the Mekong, really feels like you’re off the beaten track. Food was good and well priced, and the early morning tour to both floating markets was also very good.

    Looks great - even though you're only a minute from normal residential roads you can't see or hear anything (except the very occasional motorbike) - it feels like you're in the middle of nowhere and looks incredibly scenic. Staff were incredibly upbeat and helpful the whole team. The breakfast menu was unbelievable value for money. Someone in a different review said the hostel got their bill wrong on purpose (to rip them off) - I don't think this is right as mine was wrong in my favour!

    I had a wonderful stay at Nguyen Shack. I regret that I didn't book at least one more night there. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed playing with the puppies that were running around the common area and talking with my family travelers. The location is a peaceful, relaxing environment away from the hustle and bustle of the city. If you are looking for a friendly place surrounded by nature, helpful staff and a at-home feeling, Nguyen Shack is a good choice.

    What we liked: Good breakfast with many options to choose from. Free water refill and snacks in room. Very friendly, funny and motivated staff. Good laundry service. Interesting tour to floating markets. What we didn't like: Hardly any privacy in "private" room due to building's layout

    We arrived on December 27th, they are renovating the pool, and re coating with fibreglass. The restaurant and rooms smelt heavily of strong chemicals. Whilst I’m sure it is a beautiful place to stay when there is no construction work, If you are sensitive to chemical smells I would recommend you ask if the construction work has finished before arriving as I had a headaches after 10 minutes & we had to leave. The staff were friendly but refused to refund our deposit paid through hostel world.
