Default Pamplona during San Fermin Festival

Hey...
Just wondering if anybody's been to the San Fermin Festival..I'm def looking into that this year if I can squeeze myself in somewhere in the next few days.
Any tips? what did you think of it? and what about doing it solo?
where would i stay to not completely break the budget..thinking outside towns to sleep in maybe instead of Pamplona.
There's prob some more threads but I'm useless.
Thanks guys!!

Many great threads on the topic:

Cole's Notes:
-Sleep in the park with everybody else, check bag at City hall
-Absolutely no accomodation available with the exception of camping with a tour company out of town.
-You do not want to stay for more than a couple nights.

And I would not say you are useless, but searching on here is pretty easy, and can even be done from you current page. Just click on "search" at the top.

erin, San Fermin cant be described but only experienced. we were there for the first 2days, and believe me when i say that was plenty. as for sleeping, not sure what accommodations there are in or around Pamplona. we were luckly enough to find some quality benches, but do bring a sleeping-bag or blankets if thats the plan. all in all, its just a ridiculous nonstop party and oh yeah theres also something like the running of the bulls?!?!
