Which would be the best distro & desktop for remote VNC?

I’m don’t know much of Linux & all these different distributions, so could you please help me a bit. I would like to create a droplet that allows me to use some simple & light desktop thru VNC every now and then, but I have no idea which kind of a droplet I should create? I will also need Node.js and MongoDB.

And since I’m not so familiar with Linux over all (yet), I will also need exact step-by-step instructions for installing the desktop & configuring the VNC for it etc.

So, what’s your opinion; what would be the best & easiest platform for me? ;=)

To be more precise; would combination such as Ubuntu 16.04 + XFCE be a good choice for this kind of a purpose? Any better ideas, anyone?
