I am traveling solo and will stay in hostels where they exist, but they do not exist everywhere in Tunisia. Will I be able to find guest houses or a room with a family for US $10 or under, with clean sheets and a lock on my door? Such a place is not going to have a website. But wandering around during the day will I spy such places and be able to go in a take a look?
Traveling to small towns in Sicily, I would often go to the police station or a local bar/caffe and ask if there was a woman who might rent out a room in her home to me, a woman myself. This worked! Will it work in Tunisia?
