    Spot on, though I wish it weren’t.

    On the setting: The facilities were very much the way municipal swimming facilities tend to be like here in Finland (and also probably in Sweden).

    I don’t have bath house experience, but as far as public swimming facilities, yes, they suck. I think that might be universal.

    I meant the spot on thing as a reference to the way the world is. (I’m not sure if I had any chance of making myself understood.)

    I’m not sure why the English title is Bath house. Simhall* means a building with indoor swimming pools, meant for swimming education, sports and exercise, with showers and often a sauna (bastu in Swedish) as far as I understand it. Also, the facilities in the animation look as if they’re built for sports and fitness, not to function as a spa.

    Looking at Wikipedia, Swedes do consider simhall one type of badhus (bath house).

    Yes, the tile desert may be universal. When it’s clean, it looks boring, and when it isn’t, it looks nasty.
    * = In Swedish simma = to swim, svimma = to faint.
