Places to Stay in Niue for Backpackers
In the tiny island nation of Niue, there are no dorms, no sleeping bags required and no backpacker hostels. So if you’re visiting this unique island in the South Pacific as part of your backpacking travels or just to visit on a budget, what are your options? We would recommend staying in one of the island’s guest houses. Some guest houses are full holiday homes, while others are similar to hostels in that they have separate guest rooms and communal facilities. The only difference from a hostel is that you’ll get a whole private room to yourself. We list these styles of accommodation in this list of backpacker accommodation in Niue.
