Our size makes the hostel safe too. It doesn't take long before everyone knows who really belongs at Taurima, and that helps us to look out for each other.
At Taurima there are managers, a cook, resident assistants, cleaners and weekend staff! We believe that it is really important that you are looked after well, and we have great staff to make sure that this happens! Our resident assistants are only responsible for 10 or 15 residents, so they can get to know you and provide any help that you might need.
There is always someone on duty if you require help.
We have good cleaners too. It's important to us that the hostel is cared for well, and that our bathrooms and shared areas are kept clean.
We believe that at $315 per week Taurima provides the best value for money, compared to other similar hostels in Hamilton. Some hostels don't provide on site cooked meals, meals during the weekend or any extras, and others don't include the cost of linen or off-street parking in their weekly fee.
Alcohol and Smoke Free Site
All areas of the hostel buildings and grounds are 100% alcohol, drug and smoke free. This provides the basis for a safe and secure environment.
You don’t have to be a Christian to live here, everyone is welcome – and we won’t hassle you with our beliefs – but you do need to know what we are!
