Reviewed February 17, 2014

I only stayed here one night on my way back from Tanna Island but it was a good night. The owners Jack and Janelle are very friendly and helpful and can advise you on the best ways to get around and things to do. The food options are good too, you can have food prepared for you on site.

Very nice place centered around the swimming pool. Jack & Janelle make you feel at home the moment you arrive. They give you lots of good information and you have the idea you know them for years. Although I only stayed there for two nights I highly recommend this place as warm and friendly. Close to the centre, 5 minutes walk.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are the same.

We did stay in here for 3 nights, we did very late arrive but Janelle still very nice and welcome us at 11pm.

All the facility looks very nice and we can't believe the hostel running for such long time.
Jack & Janelle told us many things about Vanuatu, include many tips to save the money and duel with bus driver!!!

We did stay on 3 different place in Vanuatu, and here is the best shower room we have ever!!! Warm water!!!

A great stay in Vanuatu. I love the look of the place - artsy, compact and Jack and Janelle - who run the place are very friendly and helpful! It's as if we're just crashing into your friends' home for a few days to travel around Vanuatu!

We stayed at the Traveller's Budget Motel for two nights at the end of our Honeymoon. We were impressed with the accommodation, location, owners, pool, coffee and breakfast :) It has a nice atmosphere, with friendly travellers a plenty and Jack and Janelle were most helpful. I would recommend staying here as it it close to town and the rooms are tidy and comfortable.

While the rooms at Travellers are fairly basic, the owners are lovely and help with your every need in order to make your trip as good as possible. Breakfast is a definite must- very good fruit salad.

This Motel is a lovely place to stay for a few days, meet other travelers and make plans to experience Vanuatu.
Jack and Janelle are a really nice couple, they run the Motel with joy and happiness sharing chats, stories and smiles with all the guests (ask Janelle for any tip and advise about where to go to enjoy Vanuatu)
The common space, the little swimmingpool and the kitchen are the perfect spot to meet and spend time with the other guests and have a couple of beers after a day exploring Vila, food is really good and affordable (breakfast is just great!)
Rooms are big enough and super clean, there's a dorm and different rooms and even if the dorm is not available and ur traveling alone, u can easily find the best option if ur ready to share a room with other guests.

Traveller's Budget Motel is Port Vila's best value for money accommodation.
