Betta fish can have bowls for homes. There is no need to put a dent in your wallet just to get a fish tank.

The best way to clean the bowl is to remove the Betta into a cup with it's tank water, then throughly clean the bowl and decorations.Add back all the decorations and gravel, fill the bowl with water that is the same temperature as the old water, and add in the recommended dosage of aquarium water conditioner per the instructions on the bottle. Scoop your betta from the cup & place into the clean bowl of water.

Can any kind of fish survive in a fish bowl with no filters?

Betta fish are about the only kind of fish that can survive with no filter. They prefer still water or a very gentle current, so as long as you are keeping their water warm and clean (at least 80* F) they will thrive in a one gallon, unfiltered bowl. Change the water at least weekly to keep a one-gallon betta tank clean. Change more often in anything smaller (and it's not recommended to keep them in anything smaller).

Why did my betta fish jump out of his bowl?

Betta's are prone to jumping out of the bowl when it is filled right to the top. You betta probably jumped because it was trying to explore its surroundings, and didntr realize that outside of its bowl was not a safe area for a fish. Preventing bettas from jumping out is as simple as leaving 2-3" of the bowl unfilled in the future.
