The Good
The 5 layers of patented pocket springs combined with responsive memory foam creates a supportive, medium to firm mattress suitable for a range of body shapes, sizes and sleeping styles. With its focus on keeping sleepers cool through its synthetic latex layer and air flow sleep surface, the Simba is good for hot Aussie nights.
In many cases, hybrid mattresses are more affordable than all-foam models. This rings true for the Sleepy Panda, even compared to other hybrid designs. It's one of the least expensive options in our index, and the company offers a Buy Now, Pay Later option.
The Bad
Customer service seems to let the Simba down. Multiple customers complain that phone calls and emails go unanswered and responses take a long time. Delivery can be unreliable, and the mattress has been known to develop faults, including sagging on one side. Returning the mattress during the 100-night trial can be difficult.
Unresponsive customer service is Sleepy Panda's downfall. Several customers said they experienced issues contacting the customer service team and returning the mattress. Before buying, be aware of your location and see if the service team answers your questions.
