Good but not what I expected
I like the design and it was easy to put together. The packages are very heavy so you really need two people, but once you unpack it one person can manage to put it together. The only thing I was disappointed about was the colour, it's not natural wood looking, the plywood is very pinkish/red in colour and doesn't match with other decore.

Love the bed base!
The bed base stays put! It does not move, creak or go bump in the night.
Was so easy to put together and I always put the extra pillows behind the headboard.
Still a lot of space underneath too for storage and slippers.
Best of all - loved the instructions that came with the packaging!

Renter's Paradise for a price
Easy assembly, and you can use the space between the slats for storage. This bed will hands down be the easiest thing to move when my lease is up. Honestly it's amazing. It's a bit lower than most beds out there so keep that in mind when you're making your decision. A few people I know are put off by the height but I think it's perfect for rolling out of bed in the morning.
You're paying for that convenience however, there are definitely cheaper bedframes out there with more features and styling options. How much are you willing to pay for something that's convenient to move and set up once or twice (hopefully)? That's up to you.

Creaking every time I get into bed
I just received yesterday morning and it was easy to assemble, I reckon it took 20 minutes by myself (somewhere in the marketing/site says you can assemble in 5 minutes, not sure if it's possible though).
I already had the Koala mattres and both together makes my sleep really good.
Buuut... The bed base does creak, and is happening every time I get into bed.
In fact, i'm writing this review on the bed and when I make any movement not so smooth, it creaks :(
I really liked, the only thing is that for the price I wouldn't expect any noise at all

Slide in the night
Absolutely love my koala bed!! So amazingly comfortable. It was easy to assemble and makes minimal noise. However, the only complaint is during intimate times the mattress slides significantly.
Also pillows are amazing! Request.... can you please please please can you make a boomerang pillow!!!

Love it .....but the creak
Absolutely love the design and look of this bed. Very easy to assemble as promised.
Sadly the bed does creak....which is not ideal when you have a baby sleeping in the same room :-(
Also find that our koala mattress (which is amazing!!) moves around quite a bit.
Overall love the bed...am just disappointed that the creak sometimes disturbs my recently settled baby.

good value, looks good, easy assembly
It looks great and I put it together in about 5 mins with just me - easy peasy lemon squeezy. Doesn’t make a sound st all, like the height and plenty of store under it as well. The only downside is that the mattress moves a little, because there is nothing holding it in place, it just sits on top. If they could solve that problem then I would rate it excellent. No regrets, wouldn’t buy anything else - highly recommend :)

Great quality except bed head
Easy to put together, looks great, good value. Only picky downside is that bed head seems like it might not withstand a lot of weight if leaning on it. Otherwise really good! I would say 4.5 stars but it wasn’t an option.
This bed was purchased for the guest bedroom. The bed and base were easy to order and the delivery was as requested with further communication re delivery time. The bed was assembled within 5 minutes. Guests have advised the bed is very comfortable and feels sturdy. It also looks good in the room. Thank you Koala, I would recommend the product.
Good solid and quiet
Very happy with the bed and base, it's solid and comfortable, love that it's environmentally conscientious and an Aussie company that's worked hard to produce an excellent product. Definitely would recommend above the other beds from bedding stores I have purchased in the past .
Very happy with it
I grabbed the queen base (even though I only have a double mattress) because I figure I will upsize eventually. This has worked out really well for me. The extra platform works like a step for our puppy to hop up into bed and serves as a perch for my water bottle. The extra cavity at the back for pillows gets used a lot and the holes for power cords keep everything looking nice and tidy. It seems like a fairly sturdy bed base and it's also light enough to slide out from the wall if I need to do that alone. Very easy assembly. Shockingly fast de...livery. The mattress does slide around a bit on the base, but not dramatically and a bit of non-slip matting under it fixes that. There's also some creaking but that could be due to uneven flooring. It's a very thoughtful design.
