Anyone bought a koala mattress or the Aldi bed in a box?

Answered 2 years ago

If I’m going to be paying hundreds or even thousands I want to get it right. Have you got an awesome mattress and if so, what brand is it? Spring? Memory foam?

The Duck mattress came out as the best recently on Choice magazines exhaustive tests. Probably worth a look, online. I think it was just over $1,000 for a Queen. It is about 30cm deep, so would not be suitable for those old Beass beds which are high off the floor. It is designed to be suitable for putting on the floor, if you need to.

We have both a Koala mattress and an Aldi Mattress, and before that we've had >$3K mattresses of all sorts. We've had the Koala mattress for about 2 years and I'll rate it as one of the most comfortable and supportive mattresses I've ever had. It's fairly firm and it's lasted better over the 2 years than the expensive memory foam mattresses we've had in the past. We are in QLD and we don't find it overly hot to sleep on, but we also use a/c when the temp goes up, so maybe we just aren't noticing it. The Aldi mattress is in our spare room and our guests have always said it's comfortable. I can't comment on the longevity of the Aldi yet. Feels similar but not quite as good as the Koala.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Koala mattress. We got ours for about $650 on special, and at that price we can afford to change it sooner than a $3000 mattress...the $3K mattress didn't last 5 years but we persisted due to the purchase price...the final 2 years were filled with bad backs and poor sleep. Koala changed that within a week. Also the Koala people are very good to deal with. I wrote to them about another matter and it was something that they didn't make money out of but they were all over it and helped out (actually it cost them money to help me but they happily did it for free). I'm in no way affiliated with Koala and I certainly would not promote a bad product...but I will be buying from them again.

Yep got it from bev marks. Was about 3.5k but we got it on sale 50% off. Most comfortable mattress I’ve ever slept on. Every night I feel like I’m living the dream sleeping in that bed. Well worth the money.

Nothing to do with koala. Bev marks is the company that sells beds and mattresses but I can’t remember the mattress brand. They definitely recommended against seally.
It’s just like If you go to Harvey Norman and ask for their most exp mattress it is probably 10k.
The ones we bought was no way near top of the line. Best advice is to wait till half price sale if you can.

I bought a Koala mattress about 2 years ago - best mattress I've ever owned! I live in Queensland and tbh it doesn't get any hotter than any other mattress I've slept on. It's so comfortable and it's helped my back pain - I don't feel achy when I get up in the morning. I love mine :-)
