The best place to stay on Tanna is the White Grass Ocean Resort, who also organize one-day trips to Yasur volcano. If you prefer to stay near the volcano itself, there are many cozy bungalows and home stays in the area.
We personally prefer Kelson's Jungle Oasis which is probably closest to the volcano and has a direct view of the volcano (if you are lucky to get the spectacular tree house), but there are many other good choices as well:Booking.com

Steam and ash plume from Yasur on 8 May 2013 and hazard map of Yasur volcano and explanation of status levels (Geohazards)
Explosive (strombolian) activity level has been increasing recently, the latest bulletin of Geohazard today indicates. The alert level remains at 2, but an increase to 3 is possible in the near future.
Elevated risk of impacts remains near the volcano's crater, as bombs have started to fall near and in the parking area. A thick steam and ash plume is being emitted from the active vents, and there is ash fall in communities downwind.
It is recommended that all communities, visitors and travel agents take the current situation seriously (= not approach the crater rim).
