Bought this for my 6'3" son, since he was having to make provisions with the regular sized twin....sleep is WAY too important to cut corners like that.......so i had to get a good mattress.....he LOVES it and says feels he really sleeps soundly on this, no more tossing and turning! We have it on a wooden platform and was super easy to set up. I recommend the jersy knit Xl twin sheets for this. WELL worth the money!!
