Bulaia Backpackers caters to the budget conscious traveller or long stay guest who prefers to spend their holiday dollars on sightseeing and not expensive accommodation whilst in Honiara.It's ideal for small sports groups or budget family accommodation as well, as it is close to good public transport.
The accommodation was purpose built and has recently been renovated.
This family based business started with the original accommodation , Bulaia Backpackers 1 in China town. The second property is located near the Skyline US memorial. When the idea evolved about creating a business which would keep the whole family busy, the family survived on the income of a taxi. At the time they saw themselves as struggling. So thats how the name came about - 'Bulaia' means struggling.
