I just spent a week at the jugglers rest and can honestly say it is my favourate backpackers in New Zealand. I instantly felt at home in the relaxed atmosphere and it didn't take long to see why so many people are drawn back to the place. Nikki was so welcoming and went out of her way to accomodate everyone, Bruce was so friendly and kept me laughing all week! I was lucky enough to be there when all the juggling crew were there and they were all so happy to teach me new juggling skills. They have all the juggling toys you can hope to play with and i came away feeling like i had really learnt something. The homemade bread and jams are delicious, the beds are so comfortable, the front porch is beautiful and the fire juggling is awesome! I know its a place I will always come back to.
