How comfortable is a futon for a 16 year old to sleep on every night?

My 16 year old just recently moved in with us and needs a bed. I thought the futon would be nice because she is sharing the basement with my 11 year old.

  • My friend and I were 16 when we first started hanging out and she loved the futon to sleep on. She prefered it over her bed. But everyone is different.

  • I slept on a futon from the time I was 5 to the time I was 18...my dad's second wife was an evil abusive bitch =oD But that's another story. Futons are very comfortable, in my opinion.

  • As long as the mattress is decent, there is no problem. Some of the cheaper thin mattresses leave you feeling every bar underneath...I would lay down on it and see if you are comfy...you can always buy a new mattress for it or some extra padding for next to nothing.

  • I think if it's a good mattress then it's ok. I have one that the mattress isn't the best and it's not even comfy to sit on.
