Look for "Named captures".

"location" doesn't match the hostname used. You could use a "map" to
enumerate the hostnames you consider valid, with a default value for
anything else; and use that in "root".

If *every* valid hostname is handled equivalently, you could get away
with it being all in one server block.

But you may want to look into "include", or using an external-to-nginx
template system to turn your starting system into an nginx.conf with
multiple server blocks, if different hostnames are handled differently.
