Formerly the Hotel and Hostel Friedrichshain (with the second name, "Home Away from Home") the three-star Hotel Friedrichshain has seen better days, but it’s still a decent pick, with affordable rates and an interesting location.
Pros: Good location. Very cheap.
Cons: Worn. Staff can be gruff (and speak little English).
The Hotel Friedrichshain’s 40 guest rooms are simple, spare and sleep one to four people. Some are a bit worse for the wear, but they are all tidy and equipped with a TV and work desk.
Some rooms have private bathrooms. The cheapest rooms share facilities, but the two-bed-to-one-bath ratio is pretty excellent. Whether shared or private, bathrooms are basic but adequate, and offer a hair dryer and toiletries.
Situated in the courtyard of an apartment building along the busy Warschauerstrasse, the Hotel Friedrichshain is in the midst of the now-trendy Friedrichshain scene (which some may still find to be a bit gritty). The property is none too luxurious but plenty comfortable. Its lobby sports warm-tones and comfy oversized chairs.
Breakfast is available for an additional charge, and Wi-Fi is free in the public areas. Note that little English is spoken among the hotel staff (who can be surly). Also, reception hours are from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. Guests arriving outside of those hours are asked to call ahead.

About the Hotel Friedrichshain neighborhood
South of Prenzlauer Berg, Friedrichshain is young and edgy, with a good art scene. While Friedrichshain is not as densely hipstery as Prenzlauer Berg, it has a distinctly bohemian vibe. The neighborhood's culture is thrown into relief by the neighborhood's stark Soviet-reminiscent architecture. A Sunday flea market at Boxhagener Platz only reinforces the hood's hipster credentials. Friedrichshain is bisected by the mammoth Karl-Marx-Allee.
