HOSTELS IN ISRAELhei,
travelling throu israel, we tested a lot of hostels. everyone is expensive. you wont find any lower then 80shekels. but if you spend so much money, it should be nice.
In Akko, you should go to akkogatehostel, central in the oldtown. ist very nice and familiar. the owner is the best guy. funny and helping with everything. the rooms are clean, and sympathic. you feel welcome here.
In Tel Aviv you should go to OldYaffo Hostel. It is located in the old part of Yaffo, close to the fleemarket. It is clean and open-minded. You can meet nice people. and in the summer you should sleep on the roof.
Dont go to Eden Hotel. Its horrible. Dirty, disgusting rooms. The beds look as if somebody died on it. And they are unfriendly!
You can try PortInn Hostel. It belongs to the person behind the recception, if you feel welcome. You have to pay extra for some things. example towel (if you are in the dorm, what is the cheapest).
The best is, to have a tent, and camp in the karmel nature park, close to the university.
Some others will follow. If you have questions, dont be shy

1I also have recently spent time staying at hostels throughout Israel. By far the best was the Fauzi Azar Inn in Nazareth. I wish that there were places this nice to stay in every city!
In Jerusalem, I stayed at both the Abraham Hostel and the Austrian Hospice. I much preferred the Abraham for its central location (easy to get to from the airport)and the friendly crowd. The Austrian Hospice is beautiful, but the basement sleeping rooms were really cold (I was there in December) and the people staying there were less friendly, keeping to themselves. The guests at the Austrian, as one may guess, were traveling for religious reasons often. Staying at the hostels one right after the other made for very different sorts of experiences.
I stayed at the Port Inn in Haifa. It was also very nice if basic. There was a torrential rainstorm the night I was there and I think that the roof might have leaked a bit because some of my things got wet, but otherwise it was very nice.
