Your options are quite limited
For better or worse, almost NO mountain areas in the U.S., and in particular those on federal land in the western U.S., have hiker huts like you find in Europe or in the northeast U.S. Here's info specific to the Superstition Mountains:
Note that this area is legally designated wilderness, meaning significant improvements of ANY kind, definitely including covered lodging, are forbidden. Here's more info on what "wilderness" means:
Thus, to visit the Superstitions (which I HIGHLY recommend, if you are willing to plan intelligently and appropriately), you must stay in either a hotel (with day hiking) or a campground. Campgrounds, mostly with minimal facilities, are available in the Tonto National Forest:
or you can do desert wilderness hiking (NOT for neophytes to the desert!).
To hike via hikers huts or hostels in the mountains, you'll probably have to visit the northeast U.S. -- which I wouldn't recommend in April for mountain hiking.
