OK, for fun, thought I'd see if it was theoretically possible to do Berlin on a "backpack around as a university student of little means" as per holymadness' comment--and guess what? It apparently is! Here you go, Sherman: http://www.hostelbookers.com/hostels/germany/berlin/ A list of hostels/dorms for you to sort through if that's what you want. They don't come any cheaper than that, I imagine (ideal for university students of little means w/ a backpack, I think). Alright then, there be some more options for you as it pertains to Berlin, in addition to the hotel IBIS I suggested above (suddenly, doesn't sound so "basic" anymore after looking at the dorms ... eh hem ... also, apparently includes an all you can eat breakfast buffet, too, and about which you can read more about here: http://www.ibishotel.com/gb/hotel-03...te/index.shtml ). Berlin? What can I say--arts and culture, nightlife, cafes, street art, museums, palaces, and other sites of historic interest [not to mention the currywurst and beer--like, a Berliner Weisse (raspberry beer) or a Bavarian Weissbier (wheat beer)--and did I mention the currywurst and beer?] ... Enjoy!
