Well. Revelations 20:10 says "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever." (kjv) So I assume it's an actual fiery pit. There are other passages that talk about "what hell is" by literal and metaphoric definition. But the bottom line is: it's infinite, utter torment.
I would also like to point out that Christianity isn't the only religion that "has a hell." Many other religions and beliefs far and wide - with no connections to Christianity or the Bible - have their own concept of hell.
However, the all depict a place of eternal suffering and torment, and most include a fiery pit or "lake of fire."
