Perfect so far (1 month) Hope the sagging issues in other reviews dont happer over time!
The customer service - 5/5. It's a comfortable mattress, the back/neck issues seem to have stayed albeit not gone worse,too early I suppose.
Durability comes with time hope other reviews are wrong

Where is it actually made?
The mattress was too firm . Koala responded quickly, the solution being a free topper . The bag says “Australian owned and made”, the label attached to the topper “Made in China”. Koala have chosen not to post my feedback on their website so here it is.

The delivery of the mattress is very convenient and at first it is great. I’ve now owned it for 2.5-3 years, though, and I have to say that is hasn’t lasted very well. The mattress is sagging in some parts and has lost a lot of its firmness. I am now looking to replace it.

Sags... wouldn’t recommend
Customer service is amazing but it is unfortunately let down by the product. Our original mattress sagged and was replace free of charge and now our mattress has sagged again. Maybe best as a spare mattress that’s rarely slept on rather than an everyday mattress. Disappointed with product.
Have had the mattress for a week and it is so comfortable. Waking up feeling a lot more rested. I would recommend the mattresses to anyone. Easy to order, got a great deal and delivered right on time.

Mattress didn't last a year
The customer service side of purchasing is excellent. Which is likely why Koala gets so many positive reviews. But the quality of the mattress itself is pretty poor. I purchased a Koala mattress a little under a year ago. The mattress now has two compressed foam indentations where we lie. In fact it's quite uncomfortable to roll out of these divots as they are now so deep int the mattress. So less than a year later I'm looking for a new king mattress again. Unlikely I'll do the boxed mattress thing again as clearly they just don't last.

Easy to buy, very comfortable
Very easy to set up.
Comfortable mattress. Medium firmness.
Sleep has been good since getting this mattress.
The koala mattress feels durable, it hasn’t developed any depressions.
I am able to sleep comfortably even though I can get a sore back from work.

Amazing! Have recommended to all my friends
My sleep quality has been greatly improved. The mattress has no sagging after 2 months use, and is still nice and firm. It is also very comfortable, have added a topper.

Is not durable
We have had our Koala mattress for 2.5 years and I’m disappointed to report it has been showing signs of indentations and loss of shape for quite a few months.
Both my husband and I are waking up with stiff necks and jaws and my husband is now getting pins and needles in his hands. We have tried multiple different pillows hoping that would be a solution.

Junk that doesn’t last the year
Beware the slick marketing campaign that encourages people to review the delivery service etc within the period in which this mattress does not sag. If you want a mattress for 6months then this is the one for you. Otherwise stay away and find another. Don’t be sucked in by the influencers and the Instagram account. It is cheap junk and the support is sub par.

DO NOT PURCHASE. Invest in quality for your back!
I had to get this mattress replaced due to sagging and it’s also happened with the replacement, causing me significant back pain. I will be asking for a refund now.
Nice comfortable Mattress
Great mattress but when you sleep near the edge it collapses and I nearly fall out of bed. Strange it does not do this on my wifes side? We bought the bed just after christmas 2019 and bought the bed base two days ago in the hope this would stop the sagging at the edge. Unfortunately it did not. I have noticed a significant pain relief in my back though.
Junk - don't waste your money
Owned for 9 months or so. Queen size.
There is no support if you like sleeping closer to the edge.
Half of the mattress has collapsed in the past few weeks. Now have to go buy another new mattress in under a year.
Absolute junk. Don't waste your money.

Amazing mattress, fast and friendly service
Great mattress when you get use to it!
No sagging noticed
Easy hassle free delivery with updates!
Honestly makes it easier to buy with the trial instead of wasting time checking stores all day!

Absolute Garbage and a scam.
How comfortable and supportive is your mattress?
0/10 No support and super uncomfortable.
If you have any health conditions or neck/back issues, has the mattress had a positive or negative effect?
Yes i have horrible back problems and koala have made it 5x more unbearable to sleep. Also my partner now has back problems too (we thought it might just be us but after a 2 week holiday on a cruise ship with no issues with a 100 bed i come back and after 1 night i cant move again and had to drag myself to the computer to write this damn review)
ha...ve you noticed any difference in the quality of your sleep since you started using this mattress? Yes 100% worse sleep im lucky to get 4 hours a night of constant sleep without waking up and raging because my back hurts or the mattress has slumped into a bad position for your back. Do you believe your mattress is durable? Has it maintained its shape and firmness or have you noticed any sagging?
I love going to bed !
My old mattress gave me severe back issues so I decided it was time to try something new! A koala mattress! At first I didn’t like it much it was low profile and felt completely different compared to my old pillow top ! ( which was only 7 months old ) I tossed and turned the first night and abit on the second night too after 4 days I thought no this bed is not for me! So I called koala to come pick it up! Booked pick up was a week away so I ordered another brand mattress slept on that for 1 night pulled it off my bed and put my koala straight back! Cancelled my Koala pick up I absolutely love going to bed ! I wake up with zero back pain I have the best most comfortable sleep now ! Highly recommend a koala

Best Mattress I've ever had
After years of poor sleep I've finally been able to get a good 8 hours sleep every night since my Koala mattress arrived. The mattress is supportive without being too firm and yet soft enough to avoid pressure on my hips and shoulders.
The ordering and delivery process was efficient and smooth, being able to order online with same day delivery was fantastic.
I would highly recommend Koala mattresses to all my friends and family.

No Hot Spots
We have been using the KS mattress for 4 weeks. No hot spots. Light and easy to make. This is a mattress for sleeping - can't feel partner moves, and VERY comfortable, right mix between soft and firm. Although it is not a mattress for sitting on the sides - as it is not as firmly SUPPORTED OR CONSTRUCTED as other mattresses, we bought it for sleep improvement - no hot spots- and we have that. GREAT.
Service, delivery and follow up is EXCELLENT. Packaging is superb and the sheets come in delightful boxes - but a tad over done as usually the boxes are recycled....although it is recommended to use for storing other things.

Can a koala mattress be kept tightly rolled and stored for years after use as someone has given me his rolled koala mattress that was being tapped and before i untape it just want to know whether this mattress would still be the same?
My friend has given me his koala mattress which was kept in his house rolled and tapped after 3 years of use as they were not having any room left to use it. Now i am going to unbundle it as it was tightly tapped and rolled. My question - will that mattress be still usable and same as quality ?
