Is joining Youth Hosteling International cost effective for me?

In the UK, if you stay in a YHA Youth Hostel, you pay 3 pounds when you're not a member of YHA.
Joining Youth Hosteling costs $25. That means if I pay 3 pounds six times, then I've lost money compared with being a hostel member.
So here's my question: is this 3 pound fee charged per hostel, or per night? If its charged per hostel and I stay in four hostels, then membership is not cost effective. If its charged per night and I stay ten nights in hostels, then membership is more cost effective.
Does anyone know the best course of action for me?
