The atmosphere at this hostel was amazing. The wood fire, home cooking (fresh bread for breakfast) and bath was exceptional and felt like a retreat. Also a great place for circus performers as the owners have been in the performance business for many years and the juggling balls, poi and hula hoops defiantly came out. You definitely can't beat this... More

I was recommended this place by a performer friend and as a performer myself had an absolutely fantastic time here. We felt very welcome and it was very homely with plenty of circus toys to play with and practice with (they even have workshops occasionally)! The kitchen facilities are great, beautiful garden, nice rooms and you even get knitted wool... More

Already when you enter the courtyard you realize that you've arrived at a place that is loved by it's owner. And as good as she treats her hostel/home she treats her guests and thus creates a very homely atmosphere.

We had never stayed in a backpackers before and I must say that we were extremely impressed with the cleanliness, the peaceful atmosphere and how friendly everyone was during our stay. As older guests we felt quite comfortable amongst the different age groups and many nationalities. The fire show was excellent. There's no TV at Jugglers Rest and this seems... More

Best place in Picton, Super friendly, Clean, Excellent Facilitiies. Everyone was really welcoming and happy, home made jams, lovely guitar and fire performance on the deck in the evening. Being welcomed into such an awesome community is really special and not something I have found at other places. Thanks heaps!

The hostel is very comfortable and homey. It is a great place to hang out. Nikki is super friendly and really helpful, and the location is wonderful! It is just a short walk to the downtown area, with a wooded walking path that runs along a beautiful stream. The little garden and bountiful grape arbor create charming and inviting outdoor... More

The hostel is really a large house with rooms. Owner is nice and everything is clean. The shower and the toilets are new. There are some free range eggs available for a symbolic price, really nice in the morning. The only disadvantage of this place is that you have no room key.

Feels like home! Lovely backpackers hostel, friendly staff, well-equipped kitchen, very clean, very comfortable. Try out the home-made jam with freshly-baked bread and organic free-range eggs for breakfast and indulge yourself in a private evening bath.
