If you've got the standard 8 foot ceiling clearance, you'll be bumping your head if you sit up in bed. Well, actually, you won't be able to sit up in bed.
I'm not claustrophobic, but I don't know if I could comfortably sleep up there.
Also, the 2 feet to the ceiling is usually many degrees hotter than the 6 feet below it that most of us live in.
If you drop the top of the mattress to 5 feet, and use the space beneath for storage, it might clear up other areas of the apartment for the perception of more living space.
On the other hand ... this is definitely cool.
