Great place to stay, the caretaker was very nice, traveling alone I felt safe. Slept in the female dorm, the mattresses are memory foam. Would stay there again. I worked nights and slept during the day, and had no issues. It was very quiet during the day

It's smaller compared to other hostels, got a very home feel to it. It's nice and clean! Close to the Riverwalk. They have bicycles for you to use. The two managers are really nice people, I made some good friends, the included small breakfast and amenities are great! I really had a great time at this hostel and will definitely stay here again on my next visit, which is hopefully soon!

My husband and I stayed at Stella Maris for a long weekend getaway. We stayed in the private room, as my husband had never stayed in a hostel before. The hostel is clean, and well kept, with a decent kitchen. There is also a great outdoor area that is covered and has a few couches to chill on. The full bathroom is what you'd expect in any regular home. The ONLY fuss we had were 2 small items. 1) In the private room, there is really no place to hang clothes hangers except on the mirror on the back of the door. 2) The way the bed is positioned in the room, you have to climb/scoot past the footboard and wall to get into bed. Due to this, we scooted the bed over slightly to make it easier to get in and out on one side. Aside from these 2 small things, we had a wonderful time staying, and will DEFINETLY be back!

Stella Maris Hostel Wilmington was great! Managers Alec and Ashley were very present, pleasant and helpful. Clean ,superb location, comfortable beds, quiet respectful roommates in the mixed and female dorms, free parking on site and safe! I was with my wife, who was very nervous about staying in the female dorm, but Stella Maris' one private room was already booked for our 1 night stay. Book Stella Maris Hostel website directly for rates, reservations and cancellation policy We had not stayed together in a hostel since 2014 in the dangerous port of Callao, Peru and it was a terrifying experience for my wife. However our flight from the USA arrived in Lima at 1AM and we had to check in for the connecting flight from LIM at 6AM the same day so being close to the airport was a major factor.
