No one raises an eyebrow if you say hell nowadays. Once upon a time this wasn’t true.
Hell was a bad word.

Typically these traditions locate hell under the Earth's external surface and often include entrances to Hell from the land of the living.
Other traditions, which do not conceive of the afterlife as a place of punishment or reward, merely describe hell as an abode of the dead, a neutral place located under the surface of Earth (for example, see sheol and Hades).
Modern understandings of hells often depict them abstractly, as a state of loss rather than as fiery torture literally underground, but this view of the concept of a hell can, in fact, be traced back into the ancient and medieval periods as well.
Hell is sometimes portrayed as populated with demons who torment those dwelling there.
A fable about hell which recurs in folklore across several cultures is the allegory of the long spoons.
