The Good
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.
It's not easy choosing which Koala feature customers love best. The quick delivery service, seamless returns, and good customer service are just a few strengths. However, we were amazed at how many customers said their back and neck pain disappeared after sleeping on the Koala.
The Bad
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.
While many customers love the Koala, there are complaints about durability and firmness. Some customers say adjusting to the mattress takes time, but others found it too firm after several weeks. Others say the lack of edge support makes it difficult to get in and out of bed. Before buying this mattress, see if the company's 120-day trial period applies to your area.
