This hostel is amazing! 2 free drinks every night and a breakfast of toast, pancakes, cereal, and fruit! Right in the centre of town and next to party Love Lane. The hostel had a great vibe every evening with lots of games and then they take you out. 20 bed dorm has aircon on constantly and the beds are comfy....

My friend and I stayed here for three nights and had a wonderful stay. The staff were extremely helpful in helping us book bus tickets and get around town. The free breakfast was awesome as well! A great place to meet people, but not such a "party" hostel that you can't get a good nights rest. Great location as well!...

Great place to party with other backpackers. The staff is great and we stayed much longer than we intended to. There are parties at the hostel everyday where you meet so many new friends. During the day you can explore Georgetown by foot or with a scooter. The dorms itself are nice and clean, all facilities are available. All in...

Tipsy Tiger is a blast every night. You will meet people from all over the world and you'll always, always laugh. I came alone at about 11 pm and the staff immediately made friends with me which made me feel comfortable and excited. I LOVED the owners, they became actual friends. You just feel like you you're at home at...

what can i say.... maybe you enjoyed if you're no older than 18 years old, and drunk 24/7....some of the people there never stopped playing beer pong in the 2 nights I've stayed, without even going out to see the town. The rooms are super small and packed with beds. The first night (it was a saturday night I admit)...

Dear Marcello, Thanks for your feedback and we are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. But please note that: 1. There is no age limit to stay in a Party Hostel and there's nothing wrong with older people staying... as long as they know how to enjoy themselves with other travelers. 2. So Beer Pong is...

Look no further - this is the best hostel in all of Malaysia. The owners (who are backpackers themselves) do a great job of making everyone feel at home and the adorable kittens are so sweet. Breakfast is good and the two free drinks during happy hour are amazing - they make them super strong and it really brings everyone...

I've been traveling south east Asia for 5 months now in several different countries and this hostel is by FAR the best hostel I've ever stopped in. The owner, Alex, is amazing, so friendly and helpful and speaks absolutely perfect English. All the staff are equally as amazing. The rooms are clean with aircon and pod beds for a bit...
