Not sure if this is what you meant, but The Circus Hostel in Mitte is excellent.

Where should I stay?
I'm going to participate in a German summer school in the Freie Universität this August. I'm not sure about what to do with accommodation. Unless I take the less-preferable expensive option of the university dormitories, I will have to find some WG or something for a month.
The question is: where should it be? I'd like to stay in one of the vivid and culture-oriented areas, but I don't want to spend so much time in the S- and U-Bahn. I know, they are efficient, but I've been traumatized by the terrible public transport system of my city... Does anyone have any advice?
