The Tipsy Tiger Party Hostel is the one and only party hostel in Penang and probably all of Malaysia! Located in the heart of Georgetown’s UNESCO World Heritage Zone, we're just a short walking distance away from all the charms of a heritage paradise island. Come get tipsy with us and you'll be staying in a gorgeous 100-year-old newly refurbished property with cafes, museums, temples, and more.

Was teaching in Thailand at the time. He had a break and we came o we to tipsy. Was great to see a fellow Canadian in a new trailered suit every night of the week thst he had made in Vietnam. The hostel is also filled with kittens which is (no matter anyone’s opinion) absolutely incredible. The rooms are nice but the top bunks are high as a kite. It gets pretty rowdy but you Always feel welcome to join whatever crews vibe is more up your general mood for the night. Love lane bar is the best!

This place lives up to its name, they really do party and turn up every night throughout my stay. Made a few friends in penang just from this hostel and we ended up going to kl together. However if you're looking for sleep i don't recommend you come by this hostel.

I really liked my stay here! It is a very friendly atmosphere and hard to not get in touch with other people. Every night has beerpong tournaments and together you continue the night at the love lane, just two minutes away! Also decent and confortable rooms

I love this hostel so much. It makes me feel like home. The beds was so clean with provided air-condition in dormitory.The staff are so helpful and friendly. They helped me to book bus to Kuala Lumpur which is a part of their hostel service. Not only that!, they also have laundry service which makes my life easier after hang over from the great party 😉 The night shift staffs are so awosome!! If you are solo traver, this place is the right place for you which you can call home! I saved up my money from using taxi or grab, thanks to their hostel location, which is super convinient, especially to find yummy foods around 😋

As a solo traveler, Tipsy Tiger easily became one of my favorite places to pre-game. The vibe is always social and inclusive. They're good at facilitating drinking games and making people talk to each other. The staff are incredible at what they do and usually the life of the party! Start at Tipsy, play some cards or some pool, have some drinks, then head to George after and have a joss shot or two with Shane. You're in for a fun time!
