Brilliant idea!

Having just purchased a lovely new mattress, I needed to get a base, but am on a very tight budget. Also had moved into a very small studio apartment so needed something easy to set up, not super heavy and easy to transport. The Yona ticked every box!
Put it together on my own ikn about half an hour ( would probably be quicker with two people).
Have been telling everyone about it.

Anonymous (Whangarei, NZ)

Such an awesome product and possibly the best customer service I have ever received in my 70 years. I can't recommend Yona more highly. The bed and the people exceeded all my expectations.

Nice Try (Manawatu-Wanganui, NZ)
Stronger than the friendship between Timone and Pumba

Categorically the strongest bed I've ever had. I have broken a lot of beds in my time, various scenarios, but I can honestly say this is the bed I've had the most confidence sleeping, jumping etc on in my life. Not to mention when all my bridges are burned and I get run out of this town, you can fold this bed up faster than you can say "Restraining Order". I don't know if this is a Pro or a Con but with the lack of a headboard you can avoid the obvious risk of entrapment and I don't have the luxury of storage underneath but I have found the honeycomb design handy for hiding some small precious items. 10/10 would reccomend

I love this cardboard bed. It's super sturdy and awesome if you constantly move!

Better than expected

Cheap and easy

Not bad at all, I’m a bit unco so putting it together and stretching it out was a bit hard and fiddly but much easier than a normal bed base

Dylan Mitchell (Invercargill, NZ)

Great bed base,

Kim Alexander (Auckland, NZ)
Best Base Ever!

Not gonna lie, I was a bit concerned about the base being cardboard and holding weight. But this is the best base I’ve ever had. I purchased it for my daughter’s bed and it’s amazing! Considering purchasing another for my son. Highly recommend!

Lauren (Colorado Springs, US)
So far so good!

Easy to pull out of the box and set up. It will be exceptionally easy to move. I didn’t do the jump test but a guest did sleep on it with a hybrid mattress and she said she couldn’t tell it was cardboard! It doesn’t shift or move around. I like it! Might get for my own bed.

Can I pack away & put out my Yona bed on a frequent basis, e.g. to use as a spare bed?

100%! While most customers use their Yona as their permanent bed, it can also be used as a spare.

Our beds are designed to be packed away very quickly when you don't need them, and set back up again when you do. Some of our customers even do this every day!

Additionally, due to the minimalist design, it takes up very little room when packed away.
