On the Camino del Norte, between Bayonne and Irun, a new hostel will open in Saint Jean de Luz on 1st of May 2020
Thanks for that information. Just a technical question is the walk between Bayonne and Irun technically part of the CN or does it have a different name, or no name at all. I was talking to a woman who started in Bayonne when we were in the municipal albergue in Irun and when I asked her the same question she said I have no idea and we had a little laugh.

It's the Voie Littoral, and the first part of the Via de Bayona, which goes inland from Irun and eventially ends up in Burgos.
