We arrived late at night and got an 8-bed dorm to ourselves, plastic covers for the matrices, fresh linen, all fine. The bathroom smelled a little, but was otherwise clean, so I assume it's got something to do with the pipes. When we woke up we realised the beautiful setting and amazing villa we stayed in. It is run as a charity to make sure the building can slowly be restored, so the money staying there is well spent.
To comment on some on the things others have criticised:
The bedding was very clean.
The staff was very friendly.
The breakfast is very simply (two buns, butter jam and coffee), but it did the job!
It was a little adventurous getting there on the bus, but the bus driver was more than happy to tell us when to get off. The walk up the hill was well sign-posted, so that was all fine.
I would stay there again, especially since there are next to no other cheap option to stay in Verona. The city is just amazing and well worth seeing!
