I stayed at Ismail homestay with a sweet family for a month in Feb/Mar 2017 (before the permit rules changed in April). The host Ismail) never let me pay for anything we ate outside. As it was very cold (Feb), they gave a small stove for me to heat the water for the "mattress pad" as and when I want. I had raw milk and natural tasty apricots everyday during my stay. This is why I prefer homestays for GHs.

Turtuk is not a very big village, and I think at this time of year it won't be crowded, so you can just go to Turtuk and ask for the guesthouse by name. In the rare event that it might be full, there are other guesthouses. I had a nice experience at Maha Guesthouse in 2010, the first year Turtuk opened to foreigners, but I think most of the guesthouses there will be friendly like this. It was a charming village.
