Auberge de Jeunesse
Lonely Planet review
In the thick of the medina, this occupies the 18th-century Dar Saida Ajoula palace and has single-sex dorms. It has plenty of regulations. However, it's still a bargain: clean, and the large dorm has fine murals.
Our independent authors have visited Auberge de Jeunesse and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Tunis.
