Located in the Abbesses-Montmartre neighborhood, the Plug-Inn Boutique Hostel has a fun and funky flair about it that attracts backpackers du monde.

Pros: Fun and funky decor. Lively public spaces. Free breakfast.

Cons: Simply furnished rooms and dorms. Few amenities.

Review

The Plug-Inn is another case of an established hotel that transformed itself into a hostel. Similar to the Absolute Hostel, rooms are either private or dorm-style. In both you’ll find simple furnishings and well-worn blankets in effervescent shades of raspberry, orange and yellow.

Things are simple: Rooms do not have a TV, telephone or air conditioning, although there’s a new flat-screen television in the lobby. Fans are available upon request during the summer. The bathrooms and showers are outfitted with new showers, sinks, toilets and mirrors with flattering lighting.

Things are colorful and fun throughout the hostel. Modern cylindrical and party-hat-shaped light fixtures in primary colors hang throughout, and stairwell lighting is movement-activated, so there’s no stumbling around in the dark for a light switch.

During one of our visits, we found the Plug-Inn’s free Internet station, groovy television lounge and lobby (lined in faux-cowhide) bubbling over with conversations in at least four different languages.

Breakfast is included in the room rate. Wi-Fi is free throughout.

Location

The hostel is located in the fun and trendy Abbesses-Montmartre neighborhood close to an eclectic mix of shops, bars, cafés, and ethnic restaurants. Three Métro lines are nearby.

Tip: Just around the corner is Le Mono, a fun and friendly Togolese restaurant. Try the fried plantains!

About the Plug-Inn Hostel neighborhood

The wedding cake of a church that is the hilltop Sacré-Coeur basilica is this area’s most recognizable monument, and those who climb up will be rewarded with an incomparable view overlooking Paris. Montmartre's winding streets have inspired generations of starving artists and bohemians. That charm now co-exists with a theme park of the original village, centered on the Place du Tertre, complete with touristy restaurants and bars, and "artists" offering to sketch your portrait or sell you their lurid oil paintings.
