Benedictine monasteries

Hi, I've just joined the community, and already I have a question! Can anybody tell me whether:

1. Benedictine monasteries (particularly those in Europe, but anywhere will be a help) allow guests to arrive out of the blue and stay a night?

2. If so, do they charge anything? And how much, roughly? Traditionally, Benedictines didn't charge, but in the modern age they may have had to go more commercial? They do charge for people who come to stay on organised retreats, but would they charge someone who had just come in off the road needing a place to stay for one night? Do all of them charge? Some of them? None of them?

Any ideas much appreciated! :-)
