When you don't want to "start an argument in the hostel and ruin the whole night" but you do want to speak up, try just speaking from your own truth, something like:

Guy trying to be helpful: "The beach is not great because it's full of pedophiles, sex trade and transexuals."

Elizabeth: "I'm okay with transexuals, not so ok with pedophiles."
