At Mattress Advisor, we’ve been a fan of Allswell’s bedding products for some time now. So when we heard about the launch of The Allswell – their new affordable hybrid mattress – we had to see for ourselves what this bed was all about.

What initially piqued our interest about this mattress was the price point – $345 for a queen. We test mattresses for a living, so when we see a price point like that, a few thoughts come to mind, like “How good of a mattress can this really be?” or, “Wonder what weird shape this is going to be when it comes out of the box.”

Our verdict: The Allswell is the real deal – a good, solid mattress at an unusually low price point. Sure, you can spend thousands of dollars more on a good mattress with all the bells and whistles, but we were super impressed with how this mattress stacked up against other budget mattresses, and even some that were priced more conventionally.

We even asked a few of our colleagues to lie down on The Allswell and tell us how much they thought the mattress costs. We got answers like $500, $750, $800. Needless to say, they were pleasantly surprised to hear the actual price tag.

The Allswell Highlights

As with all the mattresses we review, we put The Allswell through the ringer – running it through the same 14-point testing procedure that we follow with every mattress. Here are some of the highlights from our testing.

1. Motion transfer does not stand a chance on this mattress.

Motion transfer may be one of the most underrated mattress qualities, but it’s a big deal if you share your bed with someone (including your fur-baby). You want a mattress that’s going to isolate any movement that’s happening on the other side of the bed, so if your sleeping partner moves around or gets up in the middle of the night, your sleep is not interrupted.

On The Allswell, motion transfer is stopped in its tracks. We experienced little to no movement in this test. In fact, it was so good that we balanced a glass of wine on one side of the bed, while someone rolled around on the other side. See for yourself.

2. It takes the pressure off your budget, and your body.

We were impressed with how The Allswell performed in our pressure relief test. As you can see from the heat maps below, there was very minimal pressure on the body when lying on this mattress. This is especially important around high-pressure areas like your hips, shoulders and thighs.

A mattress with good pressure relief means you have a better chance of getting quality, restorative sleep throughout the night, and won’t risk waking up with aches and pains in the morning.

3. It doesn’t skimp on quality.

While The Allswell doesn’t have all the high-end features you’ll find in more expensive mattresses, it’s still a well-made mattress. We were surprised to learn that The Allswell is a hybrid mattress – made with both Certi-PUR Certified memory foams and individually wrapped coils.

At this price point, it’s hard to find another hybrid mattress that’s still made well. Hybrids tend to offer the best of both worlds when it comes to mattresses – motion isolation and pressure relief of memory foam, and responsiveness and cooling of innersprings.

Other Benefits of The Allswell

Aside from the product benefits, Allswell still offers the same great customer service options for The Allswell mattress, including:

  • 100-night risk-free trial with free returns
  • 10-year limited warranty
  • Optional white glove service and mattress removal

Who The Allswell Is Good For  

If you ask us, good sleep is kind of like free Wifi – it should be accessible to everyone. Allswell makes this a possibility for many people by offering a good mattress at an unbeatable price point. But there are a few instances where we think The Allswell is a particularly good choice.

Couples who share a bed together

The Allswell proved that each sleeper can have a peaceful, uninterrupted night’s sleep with its awesome motion transfer score. Especially if money is tight, or you’d just prefer to spend your money on other things, like bedding accessories, then The Allswell is a great choice.

Anyone looking for a solid guest bedroom mattress

No one wants to splurge on a mattress for a guest bedroom, but you also want to make sure your guests are comfortable and can get a good night’s sleep. The Allswell will solve both of those problems for you.

People who prefer firmer mattresses

The Allswell mattress falls on the firmer end of the spectrum – but with its responsive foam and coil layers and great pressure relief, it’s still a good option for back, stomach and side sleepers alike. However, if you prefer a softer, more plush feel, it might be worth investing in a soft mattress topper.

Review Team

We take our mattress reviews seriously – and we know that every sleeper is different. So we do our best to collect real, unbiased opinions from different types of sleepers. Here’s the team that helped review The Allswell mattress.

Alesandra Woolley

Alesandra is a stomach sleeper who appreciates a bed with good edge support and minimal motion transfer. She’s all about a full 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep.

Elizabeth Hennigan

Elizabeth is a stomach sleeper whose biggest pet peeve is a mattress that dips in the middle. She is super friendly, except when she misses out on her quality shut-eye.


Alex is a back to back world sleeping champion. As a back sleeper, much of his support comes from a firm mattress and the occasional power nap.

Mary Elizabeth

Mary Elizabeth is a side sleeper who loves a mattress that's comfy, supportive, and stays cool throughout the night. Minimal motion transfer is also a must!
