Im goin on a 2 month backpacking trip through europe and i will be right on time for the Running of the bulls festival in Pamplona, Spain
but what im worried about is that their wont be any hostels available, ive heard that people set reservations a year earlier.

so my question is this, will i end up having to probably sleep in parks and on the streets and stuff?
should i plan to bring a tent so i can camp, and will their be camp sites?
and are their lockers available or somthin for luggage?

Check out the post, RUnning of the Bulls. You will not find a hostel or hotel. There are lockers, and everyone is sleeping in the park including myself. I will be there on the 7th. Also, try to book your journey into pamplona early because I think the trains are booked already. I am taking a bus from barcelona...vibasa.com I think the site is.

One thing you'll need to brace yourself for: the entire town will smell like piss.

There isn't really such a thing as sleep in Pamplona during San Fermine! Having said that, I did get some shut-eye after running on a bench in the main square. It was a bit interrupted but with some drunk Irish people poking and making fun of me!
