I have stayed at the Port Inn a couple of times in the last few weeks, and it's a good choice in Haifa, where there are not a lot of options for reasonably priced accommodation. Depending on how you look at it, the Port Inn is either an upscale hostel or simple hotel, located in the currently-under-regeneration downtown area. The location is decent - very well connected for public transport (including train) and 15 minutes walk from the German Colony. The staff are superb with a friendly welcome to Haifa, and the public areas are very pleasant and well appointed; basic supplies and drinks are available from reception but there is also a small shared kitchen, computer area etc.
Rooms are an adequate size and beds comfortable; I recommend taking a private bathroom. Breakfast is a simple but nice buffet with plenty of options. The reason that this property gets 4 rather than 5 stars from me is that the property, especially upstairs, feels a bit dated and that it needs a bit of refurbishment - a lick of paint and some thought to decor, also fixing stiff room locks etc, would really easily turn staying here from a nice experience into a really excellent one.
