Friedrichshain is a pretty safe area. Anyway, as in every big city you should be using your common sense. I've lived in Berlin most of my life and I personally find there are hardly any areas which should one avoid.

Friedrichshain is also pretty central and quite a trendy but not yet expensive area to live. Around Simon-Dach-STraße you'll have heaps of nice bars and cafes.

Friedrichshain is not bad. Many cheap and good restaurants/bars and many great people. It's also very central....

As it is one of Berlins poorest districts there are some social problems but it safe and lively. I think you will like it.

Racism isn't a big problem in Fr'hain. Don't be too afraid of that....Berlin is a very international city and you will see many asians here.

You sould avoid the districts in the very east (Marzahn, Hellersdorf, some parts of Hohenschoenhausen) as there are some racists.
