Good value for money hostel which is walking distance to the city. Clean rooms, working AC and a pool to boot! Breakfast is superb and lovely hosts in Jack and Janelle. It also offers a one stop shop for activities and moving on to other islands. This place has its own cult following already so book early!

Only stayed one night, but could easily make this a base for a longer holiday. It doesn't look like much from outside on the dusty potholed street when you first arrive - but step through the gate and you enter a little slice of Aussie charm. Tropical plants, interesting carvings and a lovely clean swimming pool, with the 10 units... More

Four of us stayed for just one night and found that the rooms were clean and well furnished for the price. Located just out of the main street with little street noise. Met at the gate on arrival and shown our rooms. Great owners and staff who have a good knowledge of the town and islands. Ideal place for one... More

We stayed for 6 nights here, Jack and Janelle were lovely, very welcoming and helpful. They treated us like we were personal guests of theirs, introducing us to each of the others guests when we met in the kitchen area. They gave us advice about trips to do, and organised them all for us. They recommended some great restaurants. The... More

Booked for a transit stay. The plane arrived 2 hours late but my shuttle was there to meet me and the first question at Travellers? - are you hungry! My kind of place. The room was spotless and the little touches made it homely, safe and comfortable. Lovely hosts, friendly vibe - would love to have stayed longer.

We stayed 3 nights at travellers after 2 nights at Tanna. Prior to coming to stay we arranged to meet them at the airport to take most of our bags and store them until we arrived back from Tanna. Nothing was a problem. When we arrived back in the dark and very tired we were greeted warmly by Pauline ,... More

Good budget motel with a pool. Offers good basic accomodation for travellers. Meals are available and a good breakfast. Jack is a very likeable person and runs a friendly homely place. Easy walk to the city centre.

I stayed at Traveller's for two weeks for work. The staff are all so lovely and willing to help you out however they can. The pool is great, and John's cooked breakfasts even better (I recommend scrambled eggs and banana smoothie). I've never hugged hotel staff as I left before- I really felt like part of the family. I'll be... More

This is a wonderful place to stay in Port Vila because of the friendliness and hospitality of the owners, Jack and Janelle. How much do I need to add to my earlier review and those of others. The large public space is an excellent place to eat and to meet the other guests. I again met a good bunch of... More
