I stayed for a couple of weeks and will be returning very soon (I can't wait)!! This lovely place is more like a welcoming home, than any hostel you will ever stay at! You will find a warm pair of hand knitted socks on your bed so your feet will stay cosy at night, warm/delicious/homemade/fresh bread with Nikki's jam in... More

I stay at Jugglers everytime I travel through Picton. Always relaxing, get to see free fire shows, learn new poi moves every time. Excellent location, beautiful gardens and tidy house, 5 minutes walk to picton central. Sybil and Manuel always provide an entertaining stay. Will always highly recommend!

This is hands down my favorite hostel in NZ. As with any hostel its the people that make the place great. Nikki and Bruce take you in and make you feel like family and, for my stay at least, my fellow travelers and hostel mates made the beautiful old house a home. The property is made private by the surrounding... More

My favorite backpacker in 3 months of backpacking in the South Island. Lovely hosts, lovely people and always a great ambiance. The place is also really cosy and the facilities are really good. If you're staying in Picton, stay at this hostel, you won't regret it.

A great, unique place to stay in Picton. Bruce was a great host and we felt very welcome from the moment we arrived. Plenty of communal cooking ingredients in the kitchen and a lovely herb garden as well. The extra 5 bob for brekky of fresh baked bread and homemade jam is a must! Everything was clean and the complimentary,... More

Jugglers Rest became definetly my favorite hostel in New Zealand. Super clean and great property! I was totally impressed about separate cutting boards for veggies and meat which i really appreciate and never saw that in any hostel before. From the first moment onwards I felt welcome and enjoyed being surrounded by such a warm and cosy energy. The owners... More

If your looking for a welcoming, comfortable stay in Picton then look no further. The hosts are more than happy for a quick chat and to offer advice on the area. The rooms were warm, spacious, clean and tidy it also happens to be an easy place to get a good night's sleep. The perfect spot to stay in Picton,... More

Exceptional hosts and an exceptionally cute hostel. Very friendly, clean and small hostel which made me feel like home. Be prepared to stay longer than planned. Free hoops, balls and tons of equipment makes it "must visit" for everyone who is into juggling, slacklining or any other artistic action. Picton itself is not exactly the center of the world, however... More
