Prepaid SIM cards are available and should be less expensive than hotel
rates iff you use little bandwidth over multiple days. There is little
chance of finding free WiFi in cafes and such. OTOH, many hostels offer
nice single/double rooms and typically also provide WiFi/Laundry etc.
If you stay in each country for a few days and need more than a few KB
data transfer, its probably best to buy a new prepaid card in each
country. The providers now start to offer Europe-wide call and data
rates but they're not very cheap yet.
For Germany, you can find data prepaid offers at Media Markt or
Saturn, which are similar to Dick Smith in Australia.
Have fun :-)
