We loved the experience of staying at the Old Church Courtyard. We didn't get to know John, but Olga was extremely helpful and kind. The breakfast was very good and the experience of having it in a sharing table was rewarding. Kitchen facilities were excellent and there's a good supermarket nearby. We just missed black out curtains, cause we were there during white nights.

We've been to dozens of hostels all over Europe including the awarded ones but Old Church Backyard is really the best accommodation for a tourist I've ever seen. The more surprising it is for me that being a Russian myself I feel extremely sceptic towards everything Russian) OCB is a typical apartment of early 20th century with carefully reconstructed interior of that times, the type you could see in movies or imagine when reading Bulgakov. John and Olya were as nice to us as host only could be.
