The monastery is called "New Norcia" or something. Don't quote me on it but I thought I heard that the reason they had both ( TLM and NO) was to sort of be a testing ground for a possible hybrid. I believe wholeheartedly that whether that monastery is helping create a  hybrid or not a return to the traditional Latin Mass is out of the question for Rome for a LONG time and that a hybrid is probably the next step. Even the Novus Ordo is here to stay whether we like it or not. The Church just put a new missal for the NO into effect. It isn't going anywhere anytime soon if ever in my lifetime. I think Mass in the vernacular is here to stay too and that whatever hybrid will come up in the next few decades will probably not be in Latin. Like it or not Vatican II changed utterly the face of Catholicism and in most of our lifetimes the only way to escape it is to just attend the SSPX or something and hope that our grandchildrens childrens children worship in a time where Vatican II and all the silliness we are dealing with is just a footnote in the history books.

I'm going to be staying at this monastery in 9 days. The monastery began by using both the New Mass and the Old Mass, but they're exclusively Tridentine now.

That's good to here they are now offering only the Traditional Mass. It's interesting that after offering both they decided to stick with the one and drop the other. I will pray that you have a good stay with them. If I had the time or money to go to Europe I would visit also but I do not. Are you discerning the monastic life?
