Top choice motel in Port Vila
Image by

Owners Jack and Janelle have created a hostel/guesthouse you’ll fall for, with spotless motel-style rooms orbiting a small pool and convivial bar area where you write down your drinks and food and pay later. It’s a great place to meet other travellers and chat about onward plans. The dorm beds and vibe drag it back to the budget category.
