Nice hostel that is clean enough but the staff are not very helpful and security is not great - no lockers in the rooms and only small lockers for some valuables in the common area. Not a great hostel to meet people. Rooms and bathrooms are very small!!
Unless you're a fan of the Moulin Rouge then the Plug Inn is not in a nice area for people trying to see the city of Paris. Additionally, The wifi hardly worked in the rooms, even rooms on the 2nd floor. We were forced to go sit in the lobby to try and connect. There's no air conditioning, which may be par for the course for Paris hostels, but will surely make for a hot summer's night in the rooms. Free breakfast, while only bread and croissant, was appreciated.

Very good location, the neighborhood is really nice with a lot of restaurants and bars. A bit claustrophobic and it gets warm if you sleep in a dorm. But overall we had a very pleasant stay!
We switched from a double private to a 3 person private when my sister arrived. I was very disappointed in this second room. Extremely small with very little space. Our shower was dirty and there was hair on the bedding. They didn't even give us pillow cases.... Just had the sheet pulled over the pillow. Not so impressed.
Our room/bathroom was extremely small but comfortable. There are several good places around to eat and is right around the corner from Moulin Rouge. There is a place to keep your bags after checkout time but just in a back room, no lockers for bigger bags. There are several free computers. The wifi was not great and you have to keep logging back in. The neighborhood was fairly quiet even when sleeping with an open window.
This hostel is worth its money, - unlike other hostels in Paris.
Great rooms for a great price. Wifi is pretty terrible in rooms tho
Place is super cramped. Our bathroom had water dripping out of the light fixture! I'm no electrician but I know water and electricity is a bad/dangerous mixture. Guy at the front desk tried to tell us he "fixed" the problem by mopping up the water from the bathroom above us. We had to be pretty stern with him to get transferred to a new room. Lockers are super small too.
There was a problem with the plumbing on our bedroom. We were immediately located in another room while the problem was fixed.
Two things stand out: staff & Wifi Staff had some real duds in it who could care less about your needs or requests. This was overshadowed by the exceptional service during the day from staff who helped me with all my requests. Wifi is terribad, not hit-or-miss. Unless you pay (hah) the free wifi kicks you at least every 4 hours, and is slow as sin/not available in your room. In the lobby you can't download files/large pictures/stream to save a life. No uploading your photos to facebook here!
very good location in montmartre, very nice little neighbourhood. wifi was a bit slow, but acceptable. no lockers in the room, they had it in the garden downstairs instead if you need, but a bit inconvenient in my opinion
Great location, friendly staff, would recommend overall. A little bit noisy at times, and the WiFi is too slow, but there are computers in the lobby with free internet which make up for it.
Great Hostel!!! For sure I would back to stay there again...
I am a novice traveller and this was my first stay in a hostle. The Plug-Inn was an excellent place to stay! The facilities were good with en suite bathrooms and wifi and computers for internet access. The security was good with key card access to the main door and to the individual rooms and also lockers for storing valuables. The staff were incredibly helpful and their language skills so good that I'm still unsure if they are originally British or American. I was very impressed, bravo Plug-Inn

The hostel is close to metro, restaurants and shops. The staff is very nice, breakfast is good (you get coffee, juice, a baguette, a croissant, cereals). It wasn't that clean and the wifi didn't work on the second floor. Definitely good value for money.
