Okay so this girl that I've been friends with for a while just (accidentally) told me she likes me. As in "more than a friend" type of like me. We usually hug and mess around in a non sexual way but I don't want to take it further. She took it... in a worse way than I expected her to and now I feel really bad, what's my next step?

Let her know that you value her friendship but don't try to tell her about your feelings for her unless you have at least 5 reasons (good ones) as to why you can't be more than friends with her. If you tell her that you like her too but can't date her, she'll either take it as a challenge or she'll assume you are lying to get her to be vulnerable with you. If you have several reasons and are willing to answer her questions, tell her your feelings. In the meantime, let her know that you are here as a friend and just let the storm calm over. If she's reacting badly, it's because she expected something from you.0
