This bunk bed is a very high quality item. The manufacturer has done a very good job eliminating items that could easily break or not hold up. It did take over an hour to assemble the item but is worth the time! The bed looks awesome in my boys room and was a much more reasonable price than anything else I saw. Thank you Overstock!
This ended up being such a great bed. I wasn't sure how sturdy this bed would be or how easy it would be to put together. Fortunately, i was pleasantly surprised on all fronts. It is very solid and sturdy, plus it was quite reasonable to assemble.

The bed is awesome--it's sturdy, high quality and looks great. The top bunk is high enough that I, who am 5'10", can sit up and even bounce on the bottom bunk without hitting my head. My kids, 6 and 4, love it. As you're assembling it though, I would watch the instructions, but even more importantly, check the directions of the bars before they're permanently in place. We had to bring out the drill to make a new hole for the ladder when we found out we'd installed the side bar upside down. The instructions don't specify which way to install the bars, which can make it difficult to get all of your screw holes in the right places. I would totally recommend this bed to friends and family though--it's great. Love it!
These bunk beds are a marvelous buy. I had read some of the previous reviews, and my husband agrees that the plastic "snaps" did need a rubber-headed hammer; many were difficult to push in by hand. Other than that, the entire set-up was "pain free" and the quality is wonderful. Our two young grandchildren, as well as the older ones will enjoy the beds. I would highly recommend this purchase. Anxious to see the kids' faces on Thanksgiving.
I ordered these for my grandsons; they are good sized boys of 9 and 11. These beds are sturdy and well made. They can handle the stress of 2 active youngsters without difficulty. I would recommend them to anyone who needs strong beds. They were not difficult to assemble for my daughter.
We love these bunk beds! They are sturdy and very hip and clean-looking. The ONLY draw back is the assembly. It is very time-consuming and tedious but definitely doable. I recommend a hammer with a rubber head to pound in the fasteners (which are the biggest pain in the neck of the entire assembly process.) Also, be very, very sure that all parts and holes are facing the correct way before fastening the bolts because you may find yourself unfastening, adjusting, and refastening pieces like we did a bunch. It took my husband and me a total of about 5 hours to put it together. our 3 1/2 year old daughter is VERY pleased and doesn't want to get off the top bunk. I highly recommend this product.
We had a bad experience with a wooden bunk bed set that broke, so I was very wary about buying a set that was fairly inexpensive again. However, this is a great sturdy set for my young boys (9 & 7). Once it was put together, I have zero concerns about it breaking. It is all metal and fits together tightly with thick metal screws. There are at least 25 metal slats under each mattress to provide even support of the bed. That said, I wouldn't recommend this bed for teenagers or adults. I am 125 lbs and when I climb up on top to change sheets, the bed is extremely shaky and at times when I begin to mount the ladder, it can feel unstable, like it may lean. It has never actually tipped up, but I imagine if a 150+ person tried to climb the ladder, it very well might tip. So, perfect for young kids, but you'll want a heavier duty set for older kids.

My husband was the "fortunate" one who put the bed together. It took him about 3 hours, mostly because it had so many parts to it. The bed was for my son's room, which is pretty small, but because of the sleek design of the bed, the room does not feel too crowded and he can now have friends sleep over without me having to pull out the sleeper sofa and make a bed every time! Great bed for the price and love the look.

Bought this bed for my grandson to replace his bed that was falling apart. He is 7 and tough on everything! The bed arrived in great condition with each of the hundreds of pieces individually wrapped in plastic. It took my son quite a while to assemble it due to the number of parts, but it was not difficult just tedious. The bed is sturdy and I think it will hold up to my grandson and last him quite a while. A feature I really liked was that it can come apart to become 2 twin beds when he outgrows the bunks. He is thrilled with it and loves the fact he can now have a friend sleep over. Overall, think this bed is a great value!
