Hell Yeah, this is a awesome Party Hostel. Party every Night with great drinking games. Had sooo much fun and a great time. PERFECT for Solo Backpackers. Meeting new people is so easy there. Drinks are very good!

We stayed 3 nights at the hostel, but extended our stay to 4 nights as were having such a fun time. The downstairs communal area hosted drinking games every night and 2 free drinks between a certain hour, they also had lots of cheap drinks deals, this was the perfect place to meet lots of other fellow travellers. The bedrooms were pretty basic what you expect for the price you are paying. If you want to sleep before 12pm, this hostel is not the place for you. Free breakfast was good & the toilets were kept very clean. Good location right in the heart of George town, and staff were super helpful and friendly and ensured we had the best time possible.

I stayed 3 nights at Tipsy Tiger. Arrived late from the Perhentians pretty tired but immediately was welcomed by Shane the Irish co owner with his business partner Alex from Malaysia. They got me sorted with a beer and had a great night out on the pub crawl that is on every night. Had a really nice room with AC for 45 MYR a night.

It's a great hostel as a solo traveller and the only one like it in Penang if not Malaysia. It's located in the really nice part of Georgetown near little India and loads of great bars. The staff, local and foreign, are all really nice and helpful and sorted me out with bus advice and coffee choices etc. If you're looking for a really buzzy hostel where you can still get a good night's sleep this is the place for you.

Ps: guests get 2 free drinks at the beginning of the evening and after that its really good value and the beer pong is great craic. (I'm also Irish)

Awesome place to stay with a magnificent vibe and stayed for 2 nights! Downstairs lounge was a place where social butterflies hang, and drinks were absolutely reasonably priced!

Would recommend to travelers who are looking to meet new people, exchange information on travel, and also to have an unforgettable experience!!

Would go back any day if time allows.

Long live Tipsy Tiger! :D
