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

    Amazing gem of a hostel. Might be the cleanest one I’ve ever been to. Beds reminded me of capsule style, so it was cool to get that experience without going to a capsule hotel. They seem to have a limited number of beds which gives it a really warm, welcoming and family oriented feel, like staying at a friend’s place. Minutes from subway. Excellent location and staff. Super safe, clean, and welcoming. Would 100% recommend.

    Ideal location, super friendly and helpful staff, and just an overall great place to stay - would recommend to anyone visiting Kyoto. With food, shopping and transport so close by, my stay was made incredibly easy, as well as having peace of mind with the hostel always being kept clean and secure. If I had a question or an issue, the team at hostel ebi always knew the answer and we’re happy to help.

    I enjoyed my stay at the Hostel Ebi very much! I want to recommend this hostel, it's nice and small (I don't like big and busy places), very clean, comfortable and in a very good location in the center of Kyoto. If I ever come to Kyoto again, I will be staying here for sure.

    Very Nice place to stay, in a Nice neighbourhood with shops, restaurants and trains/busses within a 1-10 minute walk. Nice livingroom with small kitchen and also enough space in the privatebunks to relax. You can lock your stuff inside and under the bed. The owner is very Nice. When in kyoto I would definitely go back.

    The hostel has a great location, very close to the Main Street of Kyōto City. The owner of the hostel is so kind and nice person, he helped us with a lot. There’s only one thing I would like to change and that’s the room filter, it’s kind of old. Overall, we really loved our stay and we’ll try to go back ASAP
