The Experience

We are looking for help to clean, make beds, and do laundry up to 4 days a week. All work must be done by 15:00 each day before the new guests start check-in. You'll then have the rest of the day to enjoy the city and its surroundings! Wilmington is a beautiful old southern town on the coast. We're in a historic area about a 20-minute drive to the beach, 4 blocks to downtown, restaurants, bars, clubs, cafes, and 1 block to the river.

This was my first time using worldpackers and it was an amazing experience! The Stella Maris team is absolutely wonderful and makes you feel right at home. I was there during the winter season which allowed for a relaxed and engaging work environment with lots of free time to explore the beautiful city of Wilmington. This hostel has a soft spot for artists and musicians seeking an inspiring and creative community, but even if you don't fall into those categories, its a great place to meet incredibly interesting people from all around the world. I can't recommend this place enough!! <3

My time spent at Stella Maris has been some of the most fun and interesting times I've had! Meeting cool people, making new friends, and having genuine experiences comes naturally in the vibrant Port City of Wilmington - and Stella Maris certainly plays its part in this. Being a very short walk from Downtown, it's almost impossible not to discover something new here almost every day. I don't think I could've had a better first Worldpacking experience!
