Whoops! I don't have an n3DS to check. But from pics on the internet it appears to be the same Philips #1 screws on the back panel.

Philips #000 is extremely small and cannot be used to open the 2 screws on the back panel. It can probably be used for the screws on the motherboard.

Any small Philips screwdriver that fits in the screw will work. You can use size 0, I think I use sizes 0 and 1. A flathead that fits will work as well. You could use a small knife to open it was well as long as your very careful.
EDIT: I actually use a size 00, but sizes 00, 0, and 1 all fit.

If you go to a dollar store you might be able to find a screwdriver with different sized heads. I got one that ran about$3 or $4 and comes with the right size for the 3DS backplate screws, but I tend to prefer using a jeweler size one.
