About us

Picton's smallest hostel (with beds for just 16 people) is BIG on comfort. Our lovingly renovated historic villa is an easy 10 minute stroll or 3 minute drive from the centre of town and there are walking tracks just outside our door. With shady decks, comfy chairs, bean bags, hammocks and sunny chill-out areas in lush gardens, either relax, play, learn or simply sit back & watch the amazing fire and glow shows at night. Small and cosy with all beds fully made up (no bunks), we provide every comfort for your stay including organic fruit, herb & veggie garden, breakfast, juggling toys, workshops in a variety of circus and spinning skills (poi, hoop etc) unlimited wi-fi, bikes, log fire, quality book exchange, musical instruments, barbecue, well equipped kitchen with a huge array of herbs & spices, information/advice/bookings on local activities AND an atmosphere that can't be beaten!

Lovely personal home-stay in Picton!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nicky's place in Picton! The Juggler's Rest is more like a homestay rather than a hostel! It's in a lovely homey house with Nicky as a warm host. We felt like it was a home away from home. We stayed here for my boyfriend's 30th birthday - it was great to be able to bake a cake in the well-stocked kitchen! Nicky was lovely and friendly, and made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed our evening chats next to the fire place cooking baked potatoes! There is a great herb garden so you can pick a bunch of fresh herbs to cook with which was so nice! We will definitely stay here again if we are back in Picton! Thanks for having us!

A fabulous and quirky retreat

We had a fabulous time at this very special place. I had visited over 20 years ago and always wanted to go back. I am so glad I did, because it was even better than in my memory. The owner, Nicky, patiently taught my circus-loving daughter some new skills and we met lots of interesting folks, as well as relaxing in the hammocks, cuddling Omi the cat and sharing a group prayer in response to the Australian bushfires. 5 stars!

Cosy homestay

Loved this place to bits! adequate human to space ratio so it doesn't feel too cramped. We could use their kitchen facilities which is full of herbs and spices. Very cosy ambience with charming host (and her friends). Appreciate that this hostel uses environmentally-friendly products in their housekeeping!Would recommend this hostel and would definitely book this hostel if I go back to Picton!

The host is the coolest person alive!

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Juggler's Rest for four nights, and had the loveliest time. Nikki the owner is a circus performer with a great sense of humour, and was so much fun to talk to, and she even took us on a tour to swim with dolphins! So glad we stayed there, we will definitely be back :)

Brilliant stay

We had a brilliant stay with a super host (who even opened slightly early to fit us in), who is really friendly and full of great local recommendations and jokes! Great access to local tracks, everything is sparkling clean and the breakfast (paid) is amazing (free-range local eggs, home made juice and bread etc.). Thank you for a super stay.
