It would depend on what your idea of a good hostel is. When I was there a few weeks back for New Years I didn't see any hostels in a location that would allow you to see the fireworks. I stayed at "690 on George" Hostel which is very central but is not a place I'd recommend staying unless you don't want any sleep for your whole stay in Sydney.

As for this being early, a lot of hostels are already booked out for New Years Eve and those that aren't are already pretty full and are mostly around Kings Cross.
