We stayed 4 nites. Sparky was quite a character, Most helpful. Quite a walk minto CBD, but nothing daunting, 15 mins. Bed was comfy, towels, flannes and bathmat supplied .... soap too. Coal range in kitchen warmed the place. No problem with showers. A lot of memorabilia if you are interested, all and everything. Fresh eggs from Sparky's chooks, nice. Yeah, we would stay again and recommend it.
Sparky's was by far the most unique hostel I have ever been to, and I have been to quite a few. He is beyond helpful and offered us a ride to the hostel from the bus stop. He even makes chocolate cake at night! If you also like local history, he has quite a collection in his shed in the yard that he enjoys sharing. The hostel itself was well-decorated and had a Kermit the Frog and kiwi bungee jump in the living room. Everyone gets their own soap and bath mat. If you go to Invercargill, you absolutely have to stay with Sparky. He's as Kiwi as they come!
