We stayed one night in a double room with private bathroom for 150 yuan. If you want a room with the view it's 200 or 250. The room was clean, with hot shower and heating blankets because at night it gets cold and every thing is very humid. We had a good dinner and breakfast.

After a phenomenal day of trekking along TLG, halfway guesthouse was the perfect place to stay for the night. We splashed out and stayed in one of the private rooms with the floor to ceiling windows with views out to the gorge. Worth the price just for that but the room was warm

I don't remember specific prices but I do remember thinking that prices for rooms, food and drinks were lower than we'd expected given the location and lack of competition. As an aside the only place we heard of overcharging was Sean's Guest House in Walnut Garden. We didn't go there so I can't verify this.

"Demand the best room you can get because otherwise they shove you wherever or overcharge you."
"Probably check out the other local guesthouses"
"Choose the rooms in the newer section of the hotel. The views out your windows are excellent and worth the money."
"Skip a beer or three and get the 150rmb private room if you're squeamish about sharing a squat toilet."
"go for a private room with ensuite bathroom"
