great bed for small spacesLaura-Deemy daughter absolutely loves this bed she now has a sitting area in her room to read , relax and enjoy her favorite shows.
Not as simple as it looksWhitneyBought this for my daughter for her birthday. It took three of us to build it, and it wasn't fast. One of the pre-drilled holes was off by a fraction of an inch, but that was enough to make us have to shift everything to try and get it to line up with the screw. We managed to get it secured (had no way to get into the closest IKEA for a replacement part) but it added at least an extra 45 minutes just to make that one part work.
Not sure who thought the two-part screws were a good idea, but I just had to dismantle the frame and oh my god those screws are HORRENDOUS when trying to take the frame apart. 9 times out of 10 the barrel would come out but the threaded part was still stuck in the frame, keeping you from taking it apart. After how long it took to assemble, and the headaches dismantling, I refuse to use this frame anymore. Really regret the wasted money but will be getting my daughter something else.
Hard to assemble joists. TrevorThe outer frame itself went together wonderfully. The big issue is getting the joists that you put the bed onto. First, It was very difficult getting the last joist piece into the mesh. Fought with that for about an hour. The hardest part is definitely screwing the joists to the outer frame. I got half the screws in and the other half of the screw don't line up. It takes a lot of praying to get them into place, which is hard considering there is nothing to hold onto. And even when you line up the holes, sometimes the screws just don't want to screw in. They thread once then pop out.
Solid bed, Rails are bit shortCassandraDefinitely a good price and the quality is pretty good. The only concern I have is how high the side panels are. They are a bit short when you put an average height mattress but I added some noodles to help extend them. A manageable issue.

Awful to BuildPhoenixConfusing instructions with multiple steps missing. Had to go backwards several times because the instructions were so unclear. It has been four hours. We are still unbuilding and rebuilding.
UggggghJamieWhat a pain in the butt to put together!
My back hurts with 10 cm thick mattressShihoI purchased it in August 2022, the bed slept well though it shakes a bit but I have had similar experience with my bunk beds before so that was okay. But coming into 2023, sometimes I wake up feeling the bottom of my spine sores. I feel like I am directly sleeping on one of the bars which hurts. This may not happen to kids but as a normal sized adult female for some reason this is happening. If you are renting and wish to save up spaces in your room maybe find a bunk bed that as fully covered support with the bed plank. Also, like other comments, the bed was really difficult to assemble.
The bed of pure frustrationMichaelWhile the bed seems like it will be sturdy once assembled, we may never find out. The assembly process is extremely difficult. The instructions are insufficiently clear. It is so wildly difficult in part because lining things up is a major challenge. As a bonus it gets harder as you get futher into the assembly process.
Then should you make a mistake, (AND YOU WILL), the two part bolts will separate when you try to remove them to correct the problem. This takes correcting your mistakes to new heights of frustration.
In short if your life has become too easy, if you feel like you have become to calm, buy this bed and try to assemble it. That will quickly correct both problems.

Loft bed was what areNickLoft bed was what are boys were looking for in their room.
Good buyJenniferAssembly was quite the headache; some of the screws bent when inserted, removing them made them separate... ugh!!!! Final product was great, however one must make sure bed is well-assembled first ir your little one could topple over.

Great bed for the kiddoSamanthaIt was a tad tricky to put together, as is most Ikea furniture, but it is sturdy and such a space saver for my son's awkwardly shaped bedroom.
Looking for a good cry?CoryHave you cried today? No? Then here's your opportunity!
I've birthed four enormous children, and it took more blood, sweat, and tears to build this bed.
I own an entire house of Ikea and have even assembled and installed an entire Ikea kitchen while simultaneously learning a new language from the countless boxes and still put in more effort building this monstrosity. What. A. Nightmare.
Looks nice though.
Great, simple productKarlThis product is simple and makes some space for a desk and shelf in a room that was otherwise a little small. My son absolutely loves sleeping up on top!
The only issue is that it is quite complex to build.

Great bed!AngelaWe bought this bed for our 8yo daughter and she loves it! It creates so much more floor space and she’s able to have a desk! It was fairly straightforward to put together...highly recommend!
