On Sugarloaf's shuttle route, a half mile through the trails from the Outdoor Center, across the street from the Narrow Gauge Pathway and the Carrabassett River, Hostel Of Maine (HoME) is truly in the center of Maine's High Peaks region. We are your perfect spot for the bluebird days, wind holds, hot summer trail rides, swimming hole excursions, and more.
Our bunk rooms feature six bunks each with an outlet, reading light, and comfy twin xl memory foam mattress. Our other rooms feature a mix of premium quality queen, king, and twin beds for groups of 2-5 depending on layout. Every room at Hostel of Maine has an ensuite bathroom, as well as a coffee maker and small fridge during the 2020 season. The lodge has over 2000sq/ft of common space inside for you to safely space out and enjoy yourself (masks required!). We also accommodate large groups and if interested you can rent the entire lodge, just send us an email!
Our beer, wine, and cider selection is curated with primarily local Maine producers, but we will feature other small makers when we find a drink that makes sense.
Welcome HoME. We can't wait for you to get here!

Terms and Conditions
Hostel of Maine is a fully licensed hospitality establishment, but it is also our home and we are honored to be able to welcome guests into it. All guests are expected to treat staff, guests and property with courtesy & respect. This is done thru abiding basic hostel etiquette:
- respect quiet hours between 10pm - 7am
- if it’s not yours, don’t take it
- keep your personal belongings within your own space
- carry your key with you so you can come and go without issue
- if you know you have a sleep condition that will cause disturbance to other guests, book a private room
- be mindful that you are sharing space with others; clean up after yourself and leave spaces as clean if not better than how you found them
For the safety of our guests and staff we will be operating on a self check in and check out model for the near term. We will send you detailed instructions and information regarding your stay 24 hours before arrival. We give the room time to air out before and after we clean for everyone's safety. Self check ins start at 5pm, and check out must be completed by 11am the day of departure.
Late Checkout/Early Arrivals
A 1pm check out/3pm check in is accommodated as able and carries a $25 charge.
Zoe, a large mixed breed dog lives on site and roams common areas of the hostel and grounds. All guests must be comfortable with her being here. Guest dogs are permitted with $50 fully refundable pet deposit, assuming no issues, in private rooms only and must be well socialized with people and animals, clean, fully house trained, under owner control at all times, not permitted on furniture, and not left alone in any space of the hostel (include bedrooms) for any length of time. A local dog daycare is available if necessary. If dog is found not to be well suited to a hospitality environment we reserve the right to ask the dog to leave without refund of stay and/or deposit.
Hostel of Maine is entirely non-smoking within its structure, including the porch. Guests who smoke must do so at least 25 feet from the building and are kindly asked to dispose of paraphernalia within the receptacle provided outdoors (attached to the ski lockers). Products used for smoking are not to be disposed of indoors at any time. If evidence of smoking is found within a guest's room we reserve the right to charge a $300 fee as well as the nightly charge for number of nights room(s) are deemed unable to be booked.
Deposits & Incidentals
A 10% deposit is required at time of booking, unless booking same day in which case full payment is required. At time of check in a $50 authorization will be placed on guest's card on file or provided for incidentals (items purchased, damages, etc).
All guests under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Guests over 12 but under 18 are permitted within our bunk rooms at accompanying adults discretion.
Accessible portions of property include front porch, all common areas (great room/dining room), and bedroom #2 (6 person bunk room & attached bathroom).

Our property is fully licensed, including an on premise liquor license. We provide this for the benefit of guests, but do not encourage nor allow excessive consumption to the detriment of other guests. Our on premise license also means we cannot allow you to drink or store any alcohol not purchased and opened by us within the common spaces (including guest fridge in the dining room). Personal alcohol must be stored and consumed within your privately rented bedroom.
All guests agree to be held personally liable for any charges incurred during their stay. In the event of a booking for more than one room (a group booking) the lead or registered guest (the lead guest) providing credit card details is personally liable for any person, group, company or association that fails to pay all or part of such charges. Hostel of Maine is not liable for loss, damage or theft of any personal belongings while you're staying with us.
Damage to Hostel Property
We reserve the right to charge individual guests or lead guests for the cost of rectifying damage which has been caused by the deliberate, negligent or reckless acts of guests to any portion of the hostel’s property or structure. If such damage is discovered during the stay it will be drawn to the guest’s attention but if discovered after guests have departed then we reserve the right to make a charge to the guest’s credit / debit card on file, or send an invoice for the costs for payment to the registered address. We will make every effort to rectify any damage internally prior to contracting specialists to make the repairs, and therefore will make every effort to keep any costs that guests would incur to a minimum. If the individual guest's room(s) or the hostel as a whole is deemed unrentable due to damages we reserve the right to charge guest the cost of lost booking income until space has been sufficiently remedied as to be fit for new guest arrival.
