The bed looks good overall and will work for what we need it for, however:
1. The directions for assembly were simple, but the order of assembly made for a lot of "rework". The bed comes in about 50 pieces (no joke, most of the bed is separate poles that have to be screwed together). Going through the assembly, you would attach the top end rails to the poles, then the bottom end rails. DO NOT tighten the screws completely because a curved bracket does not fit around a round pole after it's already attached to another piece. Hence the rework, did a lot of tightening per instructions and a lot of untightening of screws to get the pieces together.
2. This is not a bed that can be moved without complete disassembly. There is no way to keep the bed in one piece to move out of a door and if you take off any side/end, you pretty much have to take the whole thing apart to get it out. SAVE THE DIRECTIONS if you ever plan to move it!!!
3. The bed is VERY unstable. When you go to step on the ladder, the other side of the bed lifts off the floor and once you are on top of the bed, the bed is VERY wobbly - and NO, not because we didn't tighten the screws.
4. The ladder is about a foot wide - same for the gap at the top of the ladder. Not sure why anyone would think that a full size loft would only need a foot gap to get up to the bed. who needs a bed that big if they can fit between a one foot gap???
