1. Slash Folding Sofa Bed
I’m really excited about this foldable guest bed because not only does it have some of the comfiest cushions around, but you can also use the pieces for pillow forts!
The Slash Folding Sofa Bed has four seat cushions in oblong shapes that sit atop an extendable metal frame. By day, it’s a cozy chaise lounge; by night, it’s the coolest sofa bed around. Also, did I mention that you can use it for pillow forts? Because you can.
2. Vonanda Sofa Bed
Isn’t multifunctional furniture amazing? This inventive sofa bed is secretly four products in one, and its price point makes it a real steal.
The Vonanda Sofa Bed can transform from an ottoman to a bed, from a sofa chair to a lounger (which also has five adjustable backrest levels). Its sturdy frame helps the high density foam cushions to hold their shape and firmness for many years of use.
3. Japanese Floor Mattress
If you’re looking for a guest bed, a day bed, a kids’ play mat, or a bed for on-the-go, this futon-style Japanese Floor Mattress could be worth your while. It’s lightweight and folds up easily so it can be stored away without taking up much space.
In terms of comfort, we wouldn’t go as far as replacing it for your actual bed, but for a few days in a row, this mattress offers great comfort. Some users do complain about the storage bag being made of a cheap material that breaks quite easily. The mattress comes in a wide range of colors and designs.
4. Divano Roma Sleeper Sofa
Compact and chic, the Divano Roma Modular Sleeper Sofa unfolds into an XL twin mattress for overnight guests. This sleeper sofa makes a great addition to kids rooms and dorm rooms.
Contrasting color tones are vibrant against the sofa’s surroundings, which add a modern feel to your space. The sofa’s cushion has memory foam for premium comfort and a pleasant sleep for your guests.
5. Zinus Folding Guest Bed
I can personally attest to the quality of Zinus (I have their folding box spring), and it’s no surprise that their guest bed is also top notch. The Zinus Folding Guest Bed scoots around on wheels when not in use, folded up like a close-faced sandwich and secured with hooks.
When it’s needed, it takes mere seconds to unfold. With a five inch memory foam mattress, it’s incredibly comfortable and supportive.
6. Tri-Fold Mattress Sofa Bed
The super-portable Milliard Tri-Fold Sofa Bed fits perfectly into any living space, big or small. College students who need some extra cushion or visitors looking for a comfy place to sleep will love the lounging capabilities of this versatile and space-saving sofa bed.
7. Best Choice Splitback Sleeper
This couch was designed for two. The splitback design gives users the ability to fully recline one side while leaving the other at a sitting angle. If you need to use it for a guest bed, this Splitback Couch becomes a cozy spot for two or a generous space for one.
The mattress is surprisingly comfortable for that of a futon thanks to the plush upholstery and is available in nine colors to complement your décor. See also: Best Choice Products folding futon sofa bed.

No husband would complain about having to sleep on the couch if they had the BIGSYY Ottoman Sleeper. Cleverly disguised as a simple ottoman, the bed folds out to a full-size sleeper.

11. DHP Manila Daybed with Trundle Bed
This DHP Manila Daybed with a trundle is, perhaps, one of the most versatile on this list. Not only do you get two beds for guests, but they don’t need to both stay in the same place.
The daybed’s trundle simply sits underneath the frame when not in use, with no attachments anchoring it into place. This means that you can store two beds in the space for one. The trundle bed itself has two locking caster wheels so that wherever you put it, it will stay put.
12. JAXX ZIPLINE CONVERTIBLE SLEEPER LOVESEAT
Jaxx’s Convertible Sleeper Loveseat is a multifunctional wonder. It serves as a loveseat, living room sofa, guest bed, lounger, children’s play mat, and much more. The Queen-size sofa’s two inner cushions can be taken out to use as ottomans, while the main sofa piece folds down into a high queen-size mattress.
As comfortable as the polyurethane foam is, you could very well forego a regular living room sofa in favor of this cozy construct. Available in eight different colors. Also take a look at the King-size version with three ottomans.

Sinking into a plush oversized bean bag is one of the best feelings on this earth. Now, imagine if that bean bag chair also transformed into a guest bed, and you’ll have this beautiful invention.

Set up your guest’s sleeping space quickly and easily with the Sable Air Mattress. With a built-in pump, you can set up this air mattress in a few minutes. A pillow integrated into the design is just as comfy as a regular one, and the supportive mattress gives your guest an excellent night’s sleep.

Space for a guest bed does not come easily when you’re in college. Dorm rooms are cramped enough, but sofa beds are an ingenious way to let friends sleep over without crowding your living space.
