Joining an ashram

I have been wanting to join an ashram for some time now. Realizing that I find it hard to concentrate on spiritual growth within modern society and needing the guidance of a guru, I have been trying to find a good ashram in India.
However, all google results, more or less, only reveal ashrams that only offer visits and short, expencive, work shops... or merely hotel-like accommodations.
Can anyone direct me to the name or address of a real ashram, one that accepts novice students that are dedicated and willing to work for the ashram and willing to learn the ways of the Vedas?
Obviously I have studied the Vedas and practiced meditation, but I'm far away from feeling able to call myself a Hindu...

I would most of all want to join an Advaita ashram, but the only one I could find was the Ramana Maharshi ashram, which also only offers brief "accommodations".
I hope my interest in Advaita will not offend or annoy practicing ISKCON members, as I have also attended ISKCON temples...

Hari bol,
Anr
