Jugglers Rest Backpackers
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 February 2012

Nikki was quite welcoming, it felt like a house and not a big hostel, the fresh bread in the morning was great, and there were props you could use to juggle. Oh, and only 3-4 beds in the dorms. Wish I could have stayed longer, it's a great place.

If you want something a bit different, a nice secluded home with friendly athmosphere then this is the place to stay. Nikki made us feel most welcome in her quiet and peaceful home.
We also enjoyed her home made bread & jam at breakfast.
Give this one a try !

I have stayed at the Juggler's rest only for one night and it was enough for letting me feel at home. Nikki, who runs the place, is very kind and helpful and has a major role for giving this backpackers a great and caring atmosphere. Although located far from the commercial center, I definitely recommend trying out this place.

I stayed at the Jugglers Rest about 10 years ago, so it may well have changed in that time, but it is still in my mind as about the best place I've ever stayed. Picton is a nice enough town, but this place was outstanding... No where else have I ever had the owner teach me to eat fire as another guest tried to teach me to do fire spinning... I had so much fun, and would love to go back. I don't suppose it could ever be as much fun as it was back then, but I live in hope... (also, I've put February 2011 as the date, but only because that's as far back as it goes... Should be March/April 2002....!)
