Star Wars fans who need a fix while awaiting the J.J. Abrams installment of their beloved franchise have the option of takng a trip to Tunisia and staying in Luke Skywalker's childhood home.
Hotel Sidi Driss, located in the small Berber village of Matmata, is a traditional troglodyte cave dwelling that was used as the Lars Homestead in Star Wars: A New Hope as well as Attack of the Clones.
For around USD$20 per night, you can experience the lifestyle of a Jedi troglodyte. It's not a luxurious existence—the cave rooms are windowless, the beds are cots, and several TripAdvisor reviews mention offensive odors—but it's enough to give you serious cred among Wookieepedia users.
