Some hostels in Maine to consider include:

In Portland, the wildly colorful Black Elephant Hostel is close to the Old Port. Constructed out of a former apartment house, it offers bunk rooms, spaces for individuals or couples and a shared kitchen built for cooks. The hostel is tucked into downtown, close to shops, restaurants and rest of the city’s attractions.

Deer Isle Hostel in Deer Isle in the DownEast & Acadia area, sits on a 17-acre farm and offers rooms in a main house and in small huts in the surrounding woods. The hostel operates off the grid. A communal dinner is offered for guests.

The Hostel of Maine is in Carrabassett Valley, a center for hiking, mountain biking and skiing in the Maine Lakes and Mountains region. The log lodge offers individual, family and group rooms. It’s near Sugarloaf Ski Resort, one of Maine’s largest.

Pine Ellis Lodging in the town of Andover in the Maine Lakes and Mountains region, has guest rooms and a small campground. They offer shuttle services for hikers on the nearby Appalachian Trail, are near the large Sunday River ski area, and are close to cross-country ski and snowmobile trails.
