3 and a half out of 5 for this, to be honest - the metal frame is very cricky, when you're asleep when somebody is on the top and somebody is on the bottom so it's very cricky on the top, when somebody sleeps on the top of the bunk bed and when they turn you can hear it in the bottom, that the only fault i have on this bunk bed. The assembly was fine, we went together with it and got no problem, the springs on it are good in terms of putting together with futon. the only problem i have is because it's metal and it's all metal you get that bit kinda like you can imagine everytime you move, it kinda cricks and twist. Anyway this Bed is a space-wise, assembly was not a problem, two people put it together in an hour, the actual sturdy is good, when you even put in the screw there was no shaft to loose. Delivery was very good, bringing all the package was quick and prompt and there was no issue. Everything fits perfectly and only we only have to pick the color to match for this bed. It's perfect to my kids room and kids get used to it. Both of my kids aged 13 and 14. you can also use it as a single or double bed it also added another feature which is good, really space-wise. Only the futon that comes with this is kinda light it's not great to sleep on, it's very basic, you can probably get another bed but spending only extra to make this extra great. But overall it's very good for kids.
