When to use "waren" or "hatten" for the Plusquamperfekt? 

Waren is needed in case that the verb needs the form of sein (to be) in the German simple present perfect. We use sein if there is a locomotion (to swim, run, etc.)  or a change of a condition (wake up, get up). Addionlally the verbs of to happen (passieren/geschehen)  also come with the form of sein. All other verbs need to use a form of haben. You can read more detailed information about this topic and the German Perfect Tense: here
