Great place to stay if you are in the Lijiang area and want to get away from the crowds. Shuhe old town is beautiful and more peaceful than Lijiang (just 10 minutes by shared minibus at 2 RMB) - I was lucky enough to get there just after the touristy season so there were literally just 2 other people in the whole guesthouse.
I had a Deluxe room at around £7 per night, very comfortable but in room shower/toilet was not included. Not sure if any of the rooms have this option but I found the communal facilities really clean.
The owner is a Dutch vegetarian guy so expect only (good) vegetarian dishes and some great infusions (no alcohol as far as I am aware, I really fancied a beer..).
In addition he is the most helpful man I found on the trip: apart from helping me booking some buses and giving me general ideas for off the beaten track sights he made, on the day of my departure he made the extra step to wake up earlier to walk me towards the taxis and bargain with them for me. He even made me coffe to bring with me (a real rarity in China.)
