Where to stay during the Full Moon Party
There is accommodation all over the island but you will want to stay in Haad Rin, where the Full Moon Party takes place. All nearby areas from Haad Rin to Thong Sala (i.e Ban Tai Beach) are a good choice.
Ban Tai Beach area is where people usually try to stay when rooms start to fill up in Haad Rin. Songthaews (shared taxis) run frequently and they are inexpensive.
The northern part of the island is a bit too far away from the party but it is a better option than having to get the ferry back to Koh Samui next day. You will not have any problem to get a Songthaew back to your hotel.
