Excellent choice for the budget conscious while still enjoying all the necessary amenities one would expect in this range of accommodations. Very clean, perfectly located, security on-site 24/7, extremely knowledgable and friendly owners who strive to provide its guests with a memorable Vanuatu experience. Having travelled from Canada, this motel was exactly what I expected based on my research and... More

I agree the facilities are basic but after 5 nights here I must say that this is a good location and good value. All of the facilities are clean and the place is staffed 24/7. My room was clean, the open shared kitchen was clean and the washrooms were basic but clean. I would stay here again, the staff are... More

This is a fairly basic motel with small rooms and shared facilities. Our room was clean with okay beds. There seemed to enough bathroom facilities to go round with plenty of toilet paper and hot water and we didn't have any cleanliness issues. Laundry was reasonably priced. The motel has a pretty garden area which gives it a bit more... More

We stayed here for 2 nights because the hotel we booked originally was somehow overbooked. This motel is very basic and not very comfortable, and definitely could have been cleaner. There were cockroaches in our room. The garden is lovely but the rooms are poorly maintained, the bathroom / toilet are very basic and there is no hot water. Beds... More

Price is very competitive and the location is great, 5-10 minutes from town center. The rooms are basic but clean, same for the shared facilities such as showers and bathrooms. For solo travellers, you actually get a single room for the price of a dorm bed, which is a pleasant change if you have been on the road for a... More

As a solo traveler I spent one night here in a single room in transit from Tanna to Noumea. The rate for the room was very competitive at 2500 Vatu per night. The room was basic but clean. Earplugs are a bonus if you are sensitive to noise as the walls are quite thin and the sound of people opening... More

We were looking for cheap accommodation close to the "center". We stayed only 2 nights as we couldn't cope with the mold and the unconfy bed. Pros: cheap, free wifi, little TV (with 2 channels) Cons: mold (even around your bed), no pressure & proper hot water in the shower, crappy toilet, dirty towels/linen, no proper kitchen. And even worst,... More

This is probably the cheapest accommodation with basic western standard in Port Vila. I payed 1500 vatu plus 100 vatu tourist tax per night for a so called "dorm bed". In fact it was a bed either in a 2- or 3-bed-room and half of the night I had the room for myself ... There are shared facilities (even a... More

Stayed with a group of 7 for 2 single nights with a 2 week gap, the place is great value we each paid 1500 vatu per night with the following points noted. First room/dorm had a cold shower, and was grubby throughout, the outside grounds were sweep to perfection, it is a shame they don't spend as much time in... More
