We have an ikea bunk bed for dd's 5 &2. Top bunk is at cabin bed highet and bottom bunk is mattress on the floor. Both girls went from cot to bottom bed at about 10months and dd1 went to the top bunk at 3. Top bunk even good height for bed making.

We had to have the girls share even though we had a spare room and a study as DD1(5yrs) had a bit of a nightmare/freak out one night when she saw something at her bedroom door and wouldn't sleep in her room alone again :-(

I have loft beds (top bunk only) for my children (and myself) and think they are great. I like the bunkers ones the best, but DD1 (18yo) has an Odyssey from Harvey Norman, and DD4 (11yo) has a Paddington.
DD3 (13yo) was never really fond of it, and recently requested a low bed. I complied and she is currently very happy with her new captains bed (a bed with two rows of draws underneath).
DD7, only 3yo, has a low bed also, which I've placed partially under DD6's (in an l-shape). However, most nights she sleeps in DD6's bed and is only moved down to her bed if she is troublesome. DD6 has a mid-height bunkers bed.
The biggest downside is that in the summer months, heat rises and with the house having poor insulation, it can be uncomfortable to sleep up high in summer. The other downside is that those narrow ladder rungs are painful on adults feet. (This was why I looked at the Odyssey and Paddington, because they have wide steps instead of narrow rungs, but their biggest downside is that they are time consuming to assemble. The bunkers beds are so quick and easy to assemble.)
