Deep inside the medina of Tunis, you may fin many small and modest hotel, usually called “oukela” here,

cheap, with minimal services  but hey for 10dt(±3€ ) per night plus 3dt (±1€) for the shower, you can ask too much from them.


most of those hostel are just.. hostel with nothing more to expect.

This one is different, inside it’s lobby it has huge replica of the .. yes you guessed it: The Tour Eiffel !


the other eye catching thing is all that blue color, in low light gives a strange kitsch and soothing atmosphere



The hostel exists since 1973, the tour replica was added few years later.



there is an urban legend that before being a hostel, this building was a brothel.
