The Quiet Place B&B Haifa: Wonderful B&B in Haifa
This is a very nice B&B in Carmeliya residential area (20-30 min to Carmelit top station in Central Carmel, but busses go near the B&B). The view over the Mediteranean sea is magnificent, it is perfectly quiet in one of the bottom streets of Carmeliya, and the inn-keeper Teresa Levine is terrificly nice, excellent cook (just publishing the cooking book "Simply Israel"). Do not miss this B&B if you visit Haifa area.
It is in the first floor in a typical appartment house of this area, which is dominated by the typical Haifa/Carmel white sand stone houses.
Nice rooms with great view to the Mediterranean Sea.
Perfectly quiet (except birds + nature).

Having a six-year-old guidebook I looked in somebody’s Lonely Planet Middle East and thought Port Inn sounded like a nice place with good location, downtown and near the train station. I only wrote down the street’s name (not the number) and having a not so good map I got of at the sherut at the wrong place and had to walk far. Jaffa Road is very long and it was Sabbath and not many people around to ask. After almost an hour I found the hostel, which I had passed already without seeing it (there is no big sign outside, but the name is written above the door).
Port Inn is a nice and clean hostel run by a family. I stayed in a dorm with 7 beds, air-condition (which I don’t like) and a bathroom.
There is a kitchen to use and there you can also make yourself tea or coffee. The dorm is 55 shekels (12 dollars) without breakfast and 75 shekels (16 dollars) with breakfast. I had breakfast, which was a very good one. To use Internet is 15 shekels for one hour, and a load laundry cost 40 shekels.

Port Inn Haifa: Cheap, friendly and helpful accomodation in Haifa!
I was in Haifa in year 2002 on my pilgrimage to the Bahá'í Shrines. I travelled with my mom, dad and littlebrother and we stayed in Port Inn. Port Inn is really cheap compared to hotels and hostels, and it has a home-like atmosphere, which is really relaxing when you come from the hot midsummer streets.
The speciality of this inn is it's LOVELY hostess, Rachel. She's really like a mother to all the travellers and helps in all ways she can. She even washes your clothes for you when you're away, and it costs nearly nothing.
The inn has a "livingroom" where you have the opportunity to meet really great travellers with cool attitude from all around the world, we met Germans, Canadians, and many other people.
Near the inn there is a taxi-stop (just about 50 m from the door) so its easy to get a ride to upper Haifa. As the name says, Port Inn is located near the port and the Haifa Bay, so beaches are nearby. It's not a very long walk (less than 1km) to Ben Gurion avenue, the nicest restaurant-street in Haifa.
During our visit in Haifa we really fell in love with this clean, little inn and we recommended it to all our friends who were going to a pilgrimage. They all were very happy about this place.
The prices are from 11$ to 43$/person/night. Check out the home page: http://www.portinn.co.il/
Of course Port Inn doesn't have swimming pools or bars or other luxurious things, but I'd still go to Port Inn even if I had money to go to a five star hotel. No-one in the hotel can give me such a great experience to get to know real Israeli people like Rachel and her lovely employees.
