My plan is to start from Irun mid-March. However, I think sensible to plan for a gentle first day. Any suggestions for accommodation somewhere around half way?

Pilgrims often stop in Pasajes de San Juan (around 8km before San Sebastián) but unfortunately the albergue here only opens 21 March. There's no accommodation on Monte Jaizkibel, the hill between Hondarribia and Pasajes. So it seems you'll have to check on booking.com for private accommodation in/around Pasajes.

You can try Casa Txurdin - a guest house in Pasajes that you can reserve. You can call/message her on WhatsApp. The number is +34685475733 .

You could stay in the donativo albergue of Los Doce Tribus about 4km before. San Sebastian It is beautiful. It is a spiritual community, no alcohol, bottled refreshments and so on

We put up a tent in the grounds outside the Albergue in Passages San Juan. Glorious view down the fjord, but the bells in the church tower above rang every hour through the night.

We stayed in an Airbnb room in Pasajes.
That gave us a short walk to San Sebastian the next day.

Another option could be to walk to Pasajes, take the bus from there, an easy 15 mins, to San Sebastián. Stay overnight bus back to Pasajes in the morning and walk back to San Sebastián without your pack. Sounds complicated but was very easy to find the bus. We took the coastal route back and it was amazing. Those first days can be tough so it was very nice to be pack free and knowing we had a bed waiting for us. Buon Camino

I stayed there last year I was the only guy in men's small dorm two ladies in there own. they serve meals and a great breakfast. They bake bread. the only downer is their leader is extremely anti-catholic. nevertheless, a great place to stop even for just some refreshment.

Whether it is a downer to be anti-catholic depends on your own perspective. The leader talked to usat dinner, he spoke not about the Catholic church as far as I remember. He could not make it clear why they found their inspiration in the twelve Jewish tribes. Anyway the albergue in itself was wonderfull. Men and women sleep in different rooms

whether it is a downer huh? what is the matter with you when you rag another denomination in this day in age? I was there and I heard with my own ears, it's not cool. You are probably not a Catholic I am and I was offended but I had more grace not to retaliate and did leave a donation though I felt insulted. There is more to the Camino than a nice Albergue as you state. There is tolerance and respect.
