Lodging Suggestion in Perm, Russia

Just curious if any hubbers can suggest a place to stay in Perm, Russia for a reasonable price.

I would like to stay in a small apartment, but a hotel or hostel would be fine. I will be there for 11 days this February and so far the places I've found on the internet have been incredibly expensive.

Thanks,
HB

Railway station

Not sure how you arrive in Perm, but often at the main railway station in larger Russian cities (like Perm), you can find people renting out apartments short term. You need to find an old lady holding up a badly torn piece of cardboard with the word "Kvartira (apartment)" or "Komnata (room)" hand written on it in Cyrillic. She's your man ... so to speak
