Yes! This is an often more assumed problem than a real one for most travelers. Travelling to Iran will not be a problem.

In the very worst scenario, you may be required to take separate rooms but this is almost unheard of, particularly for foreign travelers. But remember unmarried Persian couples are not able to get a hotel room. If you’re married to an Iranian we advise you to carry your marriage certificate with passport as proof of marriage.
Can you backpack in Iran?
Backpacking, as a concept, is not as well known in Iran as in Europe or Australia, so specific backpacker hostels do not exist but this does not making backpacking impossible, in fact some of the conditions make backpacking ideal For 20 to 40 US dollars a night you can get rooms at budget hotels, which include breakfast, transport is inexpensive between cities, as is food. As a guest, you can also expect to be offered food. So, a traveller on a budget can expect to have a bit more comfort in Iran than in a lot of other places. Hitchhiking is not common in Iran, however, so don’t expect people to know what you are looking for and remember the thumbs up sign in Iran is like giving someone the middle finger in other countries, a sign of disrespect.
