Property Description

There is some reason to stay at a small hostel rather than big ones.

【Message from the owner】
Hello, I’m Jiwon, the owner of HOSTEL Ebi. I have to say, my place is not big. We have just 20 beds. So if you like businesslike or chain big accommodation, you wouldn’t like us. However, if you are looking for a cozy and friendly hostel, yes we are the one!

Normally we don’t have parties. It is because we take care of your private time and good sleep. We believe that hostel is not place for party, but place for sleep. It doesn’t mean that we are not friendly or social. We take meals and drink in living room every day. If you like, you can join us. We’d love to chat with you. Kyoto is my hometown and I have plenty of information for restaurants, bars, and sightseeing spots. Please don’t hesitate to ask where to go. Moreover, if I have time, I can show you around local places including local restaurants and bars.

Unfortunately, we haven’t got many reviews so far in Hostel World. It doesn’t mean that we are not good enough. If you worry about our reputation, please check Trip Advisor, Facebook or whatever you think of. You will be sure with what we offer. Please stay at my place and leave your great review.

Best regards,

Jiwon Kim

    The best hostel I've stayed at yet. I couldn't have asked for more whilst staying here. Everything is clean and tidy and the bed setup is excellent. The location is ideal. The best thing about the stay however, was meeting Jiwon, the owner, who is very personable and an excellent host with local knowledge. Thanks so much jiwon especially for the night out at places we would have missed as tourist and for helping us learn and try sake, shoju etc. Won't forget it! Best of luck during corona times!

    Jiwon (the hostel’s owner) is the man! The other reviews weren’t lying - he gave great recommendations, hung out playing cards and teaching us about sake, and was an incredible host. On top of that, the hostel itself is outstanding - comfy bed (BIG by Japanese hostel standards), great showers/toilets, and awesome kitchen and common room. Thanks Jiwon!

    Absolutely the best hostel I've ever stayed at! The owner was fantastic. He gave great tips on where to go for sightseeing and took us all out for drinks, dinner and karaoke one night. All of the facilities worked amazingly and we really enjoyed our stay. The location is very central with both the metro and lots of other things within walking distance. Highly recommend if you're looking for a place to stay in Kyoto!

    Absolutely incredible hostel. Ji-wuan is the man and will help you plan any adventure. There is a reason why this is the 2nd best hostel in Asia! I think it should be #1!

    This hostel is really cosy. Its very close to the centre of Kyoto and just a minutes walk from the Nishiki market streets. The hostel owner gave me some great tips and was very friendly. Its quite small but very personal. Everyone there was quite chill and even though it wasnt booked out it was easy to make friends there. Highly recommend staying here, also there is free icecream!!
