I didnt see a Youth hostel in Bastar during my trip. Also, while I'm a bit tired of peddling my own trip report, it might be useful for you, so have a look :

There're a few useful contacts at the end including Shakeel Rizvi who can arrange homestays if you like and Saathi bastar (that has made it into the lonely planet by now) that you can contact for various needs. Bastar is still underdeveloped outside of the main city of Jagdalpur as far as tourist infrastructure is concerned so plan accordingly.
