Budget hotel close to Humboldt University

I am looking for a budget hotel relatively close to Humboldt University in Berlin, for 5 days in January. Since I have never been to Berlin before, I am not sure what neighborhoods to look at, i.e. I am not sure what counts as close to the University and what counts as "the center" in Berlin. So, any suggestion about how to screen the hotels would be good! Thanks in advance!

Humboldt University has 3 campuses: Mitte, Nord and Adlershof

www.hu-berlin.de/service/kontakt/lage-anfahrt

Thus if you want to stay close you need to know first where you have to go to.

The main building is at the boulevard Unter den Linden.

Opposite of it is the Hotel de Rome. However not exactly a budget hotel.

Thanks! I believe it is the campus in Mitte, so I wonder what counts as close a in terms of neighborhoods, and if there are some recommendable budget establishments that are well connected to that campus...

Thank you very much,

now I need to be advised what would be the best and and the simplest way to arrive from the Schonefeld airport to the Zoologischer Garten. Is there any way to avoid changing the trains, or if it is impossible, what would be the least complicated route to take? Thanks in advance!

From SXF, take the RB14 or RE7 Airport Express train. It stops at Friedrichstrasse, close to HU), and Zoo. €3 one-way.
