The hotel is down in the Port area of Haifa. It is a short walk to the Bahai Gardens and all the restaurants. There is parking available next door for 40NIS or you could walk from the train station.
The best thing about the Port Inn is the pretty Russian looking girl on reception who cannot do enough to help you. Normally you get a bored receptionist in these kind of places but this young lady took time to introduce us to the hotel, show us around and help us with local attractions and directions.
The Port Inn is spotlessly clean and the rooms are spacious. The only reason I did not give 5 stars are the room was a little bland, only a tiny window and could do with a revamp especially the bathroom.
In the morning a lovely breakfast platter was served in the dining room with a friendly service.
Overall worth a stay at the Port Inn if you are in Haifa.

what i appreciate more about Port Inn in Haifa are little but important details:
staff is just not only kind and helpfull, but seems to understand your needs before you talk to them: when you check in they show you all facilities of the guest house and give you all informtion about sightseen in town.
there are Wi Fi connection and computer available, laundry service and parking on request.
to get in the hostel you need a numeric digit password, but, to have access to rooms and dorms area, you must be checked in (they give you a small electronic pass to open the door), and i find this very important for your safe.
rooms was clean and quite well organized
breakfast offer wide choice of brad, jam, cheese, ham, beverages and more
staff looks really interested to get your opinion about the place and ask about if any improvement can be done.
the Hostel is very well located in town, just 10 mins walking from German Colony (restaurant and more facilities area)
i higly raccomand Port Inn for staying in haifa

Port Inn was easy to find off Yafo road, nestled in between tons of broken down shops and shoddy walls. While the area surrounding is a bit sketchy, don't let that fool you.

I found the hostel to be just what I needed: cool (A/C in rooms), not too crowded (4 beds in my room, for a good price), convenient (several private showers, would hold your bags), and friendly.

The courtyard area is lovely! One of the best I've seen from many hostels.
The staff was friendly but not quite at first (they seemed to be a bit cold until they got to know me).

The location isn't the best, but it's still within walking distance to the subway and the German colony.


I would definitely recommend Port Inn!

I stayed for one night in a four bed dorm. The room was very clean however the beds are a little short - at least for a tall person. The staff was very kind and helpful. Well equipped kitchen and a nice garden. I can totally recommend this hostel.

This place definitely has more character than your average hostel.

Firstly, the service here was awesome. From when we first walked in we felt like we were at home.

There is free internet (wifi) and computers and the connection was really strong.

The kitchen was very well equipped and there is free tea and coffee all day long. The only downside here is that it was a little poky. There was also ample space to sit both within the dining room and outside.

The room was spacious and clean and had more character than most hostel rooms. The bathrooms were also clean and quite nice.

Location wise it is perfect situation within walking distance of both the subway and train stations, and there is also a bus stop nearby. This means that getting to the beach, the Bahai gardens as well as onto you next destination is pretty simple. They are also happy to store your bag for the day after you have checked out and would like to keep sightseeing.

Great place to stay in Haifa. The private room had all we needed, it was clean and spacious. Breakfast was excellent. Parking was not a problem (but we were there during Shabat). WiFi up and running. Just 10 minutes walk from the centre.

My three friends and I spent one night in the dorms of Port Inn. It was out first "dorm" experience, sharing a room with 9 other people. At first we were hesitant, but all the perceived risks were imagined. We slept peacefully. Other guests were young and very friendly. We felt safe. The location was perfect for our early morning train to Tel Aviv (a short 2-3 min walk from the Inn). Over all, we were overwhelmingly pleased with our experience, constantly surprised at the level of service -- computers, a beautiful garden, clean showers, awesome location.
