Where was that albergue?

In the 2017/18 programme "Pilgrimage" in which seven minor celebs walked parts of the Camino Francés, they spent their last night in a large two-storey shed with a huge painted scallop shell on the front of the building. It was said to be "5 km" from Santiago. Can you identify it for me, please? (It was repeated this morning, Sunday 23 May.)

It said they were going to Monte do Gozo, which is about 5 km from Santiago, where there is a massive 400+ bed albergue, is that it?

EDIT: Checked the end of programme and it is.

It's not the main albergue. I only caught the last 15 minutes or so of the programme, and so just missed the bit where the voice-over said they were staying at a Polish run hostel at Monte do Gozo. [I've just watched that bit on iPlayer.] Here's a screenshot:

I entered Centro Europeo de peregrinacion Juan Pablo II and looked at 'Images'. Not one of the images showed the shed with the scallop shell on it as shown in my screen-shot, but I have no doubt that it is the place.

This page shows a near identical building with different wall art:

I guess it's probably the same building photographed at a different time - or the identical twin of the building on the same campus.

That's very interesting, Raggy. I thought, maybe I didn't find a picture of the "shed" because my search engine (? browser? I can never remember the difference) is searching in English. So I googled "Centro de Peregrinacion wydzielony został budynek" and first of all four images appeared including one of the shed as it appears on Raggy's find. When I clicked on "View all" it wasn't there! 19 images, but not one of the shed! But my question has been well and truly answered. The Pilgrims stayed at the Centro de Peregrinacion Juan Pablo II, which has been painted variously at various times.
