The YMCA hostel was the best experience I had staying in Berkeley as a backpacker. It's cheap, safe, run by a dedicated staff, and reasonably clean. It's a budget hostel, not a hotel: facilities are shared, there's lots of young travelers, it may take until the next day until cleanup, and don't expect designer furniture in the rooms. But all I needed was there, including good Wi-Fi, a fridge in each room and a well-stocked community kitchen. All staff I encountered were extraordinarily nice people. Would stay again.
