I stayed in a 6-bed mixed dorm for a really great price of just under 12 Euros a night. Book directly from the hostel webpage as they offer up to 20% discounts there. With this cheaper rate comes less flexibility for cancellation; I found upon arrival that my credit card was already charged since I chose the biggest discount, but totally worth it if your schedule is confirmed. They also take a 10 Euro deposit upon check-in for keys and padlocks, which is refunded when you check out. Staff are generally quite helpful.
Location-wise, a pretty decent 5min walk from Checkpoint Charlie and its metro station as well as generally a half-hour's walk from all the major attractions in Berlin. There's a supermarket just on the other side of the street for those wanting to self-cater.
The dorm was surprisingly roomy and could fit lockers inside quite comfortably. Given that my dorm only had 3-4 people lodging in it during my stay, it felt a lot more spacious too. Free wifi was accessible from dorms and electric sockets were also available next to each bed, which was convenient.
Shared bathrooms and toilets were pretty okay and up to scratch. The kitchen is not very well stocked and a bit on the small side. During my 2 night stay, one stove and one urinal were out of order throughout; not sure how long they take to fix these things but with so many people sharing limited facilities, you'd think they would be repaired sooner. There are big common spaces in the lobby and at the other end of the hallway as well.
Overall, I was satisfied with my stay there, especially considering the value I got for such a low cost. If you're just spending a couple of days in Berlin and want cheap, basic lodgings, this is the place to go to.
