Reasons to choose us

1. Eco friendly
The guesthouse is fully of natural plants and we use mostly bamboo for our furniture and decoration to make the guests feel closer to nature. At Nguyen Shack we try to be as much eco-friendly as possible with choosing natural material that will not damage the environment and having bamboo straw and free water refill is another we have to be the change we want to see.
2. Best location
The Nguyen Shack Saigon is located in a quiet and peaceful small alley that finish by a dead end, but we are still right in the middle of the downtown of the largest city of Vietnam. So it's a big contrast 150 meter away is one of the most important roundabout and we are walkable distance of all the main touristic attraction of the city.
3. Family run
When you visit us you always feel welcome like at home. Since the beginning we want to keep the homestay mentality and give a personal service to our guest. Throughout the time, Nguyen Shack became a little network of Nature Home off the beaten track all around Vietnam, but we kept our standard the same and our team will welcome you with a great sense of hospitality.
4. Sustainable tourism
Every morning our cook go to buy the foods from the local farmer in the nearby market. We also conscientiously buy our tea, coffee and spirits for our little shop Drink Vietnam to some supply that work locally and paid fairly the farmer. Most of our philanthropique action are happening in countryside because in Saigon District no many people are in needs. We choose most of our staff from countryside side area to come to work with us in big city and going out of poverty.
