Travellers' Choice
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 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.

We stayed a couple of nights here on arriving in HCMC. We had a double room on the first floor with en-suite. the room was well sized with a comfortable bed and amenities, very good value. But what made the place was the vibe and the staff. The shack is on a small alley off a main street in central HCMC so it has the benefit of a central location while being away from the craziness that HCMC can be. The staff were great. We arrived just as Covid-19 was really kicking in in Vietnam and things were closing down. This meant we had to change a lot of plans and the staff at the shack were great with help and advice. There were normally other travellers around in the cafe area too which also provided a lot of help. We loved this place and will certainly stay here again next time we come to HCMC.

Room Tip: We had 102? Double on the first floor. It's quiet as it's at the back away from the street

We happened upon this little gem while walking around the city. What an awesome little coffee shop! They were so friendly and helped us try several different drinks. We tried banana coffee. Watermelon iced tea. Plus the standard coffee with milk.

We arrived in Ho Chi Minh City early in the morning and were able to drop our bags off which was super handy. Received a very friendly welcome and a lemon drink, and given a free map and shown some sights to visit. Really good English and great vibe in the communal area, fairy lights and teas lining the sides of the room. Close to everything but can't hear any of the traffic. Chris helped us book a Mekong Delta tour. Also the breakfasts were amazing - you have to try the coconut coffee! Best drink ever. Room was clean and bed comfy. Nyugen Shack has set the bar high for the rest of our trip!

So many great things about this place- location is great, walkable from the War Remnants Museum, some great food places and other sights. The staff were amazing- incredibly helpful with recommendations and organising transport. The rooms were spacious and cool. And the banana coffee for breakfast.. it has started an addiction I am continuing throughout my Vietnam travels. Unfortunately, sleeping was a little difficult here. The beds are hard as rocks and with the slightly bohemian theme, every time you moved the bamboo beds creaked!! We were on the third floor and the window/door out to the stairs had opaque like glass and the light from the stairwell/common area was really bright. Small things, but if you find sleeping hard anyway, you may struggle here. Overall, really good and would consider staying again.

We stayed here for 2 days during our time in Saigon. The tea and spirits collection is awesome, and the young guy working there had so much knowledge to share about it. Would definitely come back if we were ever in Saigon again 🙂
