This is a walk-through and achievement guide for The Bathhouse
Hey all! Thanks for choosing my guide. I tried to make it as complete as possible. I also experimented with different options to determine what is important for the end achievements. Many things that appeared to be important don’t really matter. For example, the hole and dialogue options. My guide is not final. You can make things slightly different to get similar results. I also included some personal choices, such as tossing Maina’s creepy doll and not touching it at any time as Erena.
You will also see achievements in the walkthrough. Here’s a summary for your viewing pleasure.
EEasiest way to get out the way Day 1 on your way to the baths. To the right of the main street, go up the hill. Continue on to the temple grounds. You will need to climb another set of stairs. Place the bundles on four racks at the temple grounds. Once all 13 bundles have been placed and fished, the achievement unlocks.
Follow and follow the guide, but don’t forget to do some things right. The easiest way to go is to follow the guide. However, if you are asked to grab the tongs and fill the boilers using wood, I suggest not doing so. Skip the basement hatch section. Return to work and carry on the game as normal. You can also fail the matching puzzle.
Please see the “Bath Puzzle” section in the guide for a walkthrough.
Follow our guide. Keep in mind that dialogue choices don’t count.

Day 5: Bath Puzzle
This puzzle will take you five minutes to collect items from the women’s lobby. Then, look at where they are located in the men’s baths and then match their placement in the ladies’ baths. Before you start, make sure to take screenshots of the layout and understand the positions. Once you have completed the puzzle correctly, the sequence will end. This guide will show where to place the bath items for women’s baths. I have taken screenshots of how I placed them.
Step by step
Place a stool on the spot closest the wall, front pool.
Place a bathtub on the opposite side of your pool, closest to the wall
Place the body wash in the last spot to your right on the first shower island that faces the pools
Place the rubber ducky at the end of the tub, directly ahead of the entry to the pool.
Go to the opposite side of the shower island row facing the far showers. Place the conditioner near the sauna at the end.
Place a stool outside the sauna’s far-wall shower.
To the left side of the stool Maina uses for showering all game, place your shampoo.
A tub can be placed next to the stool.
The last stool should be placed between the two shower islands.
