Yep, you can use your PS4 controller on a PS5, but only for playing PS4 games. For PS5 games, you'll need the DualSense controller.

In my experience, the PS4 controller works fine on the PS5 but only with PS4 games. It's perfect for multiplayer sessions without needing extra DualSense controllers!
