As advertised. Really small hostel. Small elevator, small showers, small toilets. No lockers in rooms. There are small ones in the lobby. A bit out of the way. Montmartre is a great place, but walking to most of the sights is out of option. But, if you are visiting Paris, you are gonna use the Metro anyway. Now, the good things - price! As cheap as it can get. Free breakfast. Free towel. Hairdryer. Reading light, power outlet and USB charging port next to bed. Clean.

Thanks for your comments! We keep the lockes in the lobby so they are under camera to ensure the safety of our guests belongings.


Our room was not as clean as we had hoped for and overall, the hostel was not quite as advertised. Location was great and it is a pretty secure space in an area where security is important. I wouldn't stay here on a return trip.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! We appreciate your comments and will take them into consideration!


I found a bug in a bed. But they changed a room Immediately and they are kind. However, the i have to change room again, twice, because of Plumbing problems. so, i changed room 3 times... Around of the hostel was quite and secure. Also it was really good that they have an elevator. but,,, I think i won't go this hostel again.


We were incredibly happy with our stay! The staff was wonderful and very helpful and the kitten was a really cute addition. Might be nice to encourage or do group dinners to bring people together, but other than that was a really nice stay that made Paris even better =D


overall good hostel. WI-FI is not free. €5 a day for you to be able to do anything and even then it's mediocre at best. overall pleasant stay.


This hostel was pretty good, but there was a mold issue in the room we stayed in that remained unaddressed. Overall though, a pretty good place. Friendly staff, rooms fairly clean and outlets next to every bed.


It would be great if there was something like a chill room with some couches. Right now it was ok to chill downstairs but it would definitely be a plus if the place was more comfortable. Wi-Fi was too slow to really use... beds were too small for me (1.88m). Staff was awesome! I'm going to live in Paris after this and the people who worked there helped me a lot.. I had some great time with the guys doing the night shifts in the Weekend. Price was very decent compared to other hostels in Paris.

Our staff are indeed awesome, we're happy they were able to assist in your move to Paris too!


Average hostel. No lockers except tiny ones for your passport, beds are loud and creaky, wifi is slow in the lobby and essentially useless in the rooms, location far from everything except the Moulin Rouge, hard to go to sleep before 1am. These are all minor things and I enjoyed my stay. The staff are wonderful and there is an ADORABLE kitten that lives in the lobby and needs somebody to play with her. Please stay here just for that. I promise you will not regret meeting this animal.

Thanks for the review! We have a range of lockers in the lobby, with the capacity to fit small bags, laptops as well as other personal belongings. You must have missed the world famous Sacre Coeur just down the street! As for the kitty, we totally agree ;)


The hostel is nice. The location is very good, many restaurants and shops around. Also, 2 metro stations. The room was a bit small. It was suppose be for four girls but there were 5 beds. A bit warm depite of the fan and the bethroom was not super clean, but ok. Breakfast very good and the staff was helpful. I would recomend this hostel.


So close to metro stop and Moulin Rouge! Free breakfast is good. Not very easy to meet new people, but a very nice hostel.


Staff was very nice. Unfortunately, they couldn't make up for the small room and bathroom. Very cramped. The elevator was a 1 person elevator. The common area was not very good for socializing or meeting people. Couple good restaurants around the place and about a 5 minute walk from the train station. Would not stay again.

We appreciate you taking the time to leave your comments. We try to do the best we can with the space!


I absolutely loved my stay in Paris and a large part of this is due to Plug Inn Hostel because it allowed me to meet people that I could possibly keep in contact with for the rest of my life. The staff is amazing here!!

We're very happy you were able to make friends here at the hostel and our staff were able to contribute positively to your experience of Paris. We hope to see you again one day!


Staff were all fantastic so kind and helpful! Absolutely love the hostel kitten, makes up for missed pets at home! Breakfast included is good value. 5 mins walk to two metros which makes it very easy to see everything Paris has to offer. Rooms are a little small but you won't be spending time in your room there is too much to do! Bathrooms are clean but a bit annoying because the shower is over a bath. Loved it thanks!

So glad you enjoyed your time here. We pride ourselves on our staff and are pleased they were able to help you!


Average service, average rooms, nothing too special but it's a suitable place. The best part is the tiny little kitten who lives there. So sweet and cute! Very cuddly.

the plug inn was a very nice hostel. we lived in a 4 bed room with our own bathroom which was clean. i liked very much that we got a free breakfast as well some might complain that it was a very small breakfast but in total its more than what you get somewhere else. the kitchen was nice to cook in and the location was great. it was not near any of the main sights(with the tube you got everywhere in under 20 min) but direktly in montmartre which is very nice to walk through after a long day
