Youth hostels (Jugendherbergen) in Germany are non-profit, small budget hotels, usually with shared bedrooms. To stay in one of these youth hostels in Germany you need to be a member of either the German Youth Hostel Association (Deutsches Jugendherbergswerk, DJH) or Hosteling International (HI).
The annual fee for people under the age of 27 is €7.00, older people pay €22.50. You can apply directly at any youth hostel or online at www.jugendherberge.de/en/basics/membership or www.hihostels.com/info/membership.
In other countries, a membership may not be necessary to stay in a hostel. However, it is worth taking a look at the HI homepage and compare their prices with the ones of "normal“ hostels if you plan on travelling around Europe because you might get a discount (10 % per night for example in England) as a member of HI.
In Germany, a normal hostel is called “Hostel“, “Backpacker“ or “Backpacker Hostel“. To stay in those private hostels you do not have to be a member of any of the above mentioned organisations.
