Reuse of gray water is an important water conservation method. However, the suggested method, while simple, has some implications.
It could be hazardous to climb up a flight of steps to reach a higher level bathig platform in a wet environment, especially for those a bit unsteady on their feet.
The wash water will have a lot of biological contamination as well as nutrients from soap etc. If this water is stored micro organism growth is almost certain.
There are existing methods to collect, treat minimally, and reuse this water. There is of course a cost to it.
