Zen Sleep Hybrid Mattress Review
The Zen Sleep Hybrid Mattress is a great value option in the mattress in a box market. It is comfortable, supportive, and comes with free bedding products.
Purchase and delivery
As with other mattress in a box products, the Zen Sleep Hybrid Mattress can be ordered online (through the Zen Sleep website) and it will arrive at your door in a compact box. Delivery is free and can be delivered Australia-wide (see delivery times below in our ‘Delivery’ section).
The box arrived in reasonable condition and removing the Zen Sleep Hybrid Mattress from its packaging was little trouble. The quality and appearance of the plastic packaging was substandard (cloudy yellow colour), but nevertheless, it should only take 5-10 minutes to unpack.
As usual, we recommend having two people available to unpack a mattress in a box, and we allowed it to decompress for 24 hours before testing.
Aesthetically, the Zen Sleep Hybrid Mattress has a modern, funky appearance. It has a beige/cream top cover with blue coloured sides. The Zen Sleep logo embroidery has a blue and orange colour theme, and gives it a nice touch.
Comfort and support
The Zen Sleep Hybrid Mattress uses a TENCEL fabric cover that feels soft and breathable. This sits over a layer of latex and a layer of cool memory foam. This combination of comfort layers is common, and this mattress absorbs body weight nicely.
This mattress comes with 2 free pillows and a free mattress protector.
Our team rated it as a ‘medium-firm’ feel and a 7.5 / 10 on the firmness scale (with 10 being the firmest). Please note that our firmness ratings are just a guide and they do not necessarily relate to comfort.
These comfort layers sit over a 7 zone pocket spring system that supports the spine well in all positions. Its level of responsiveness is lacking slightly, but this wouldn’t be a deal breaker in context of its price.
The Zen Sleep Hybrid Mattress isn’t as solid as some of the other pocket spring systems that we have tested (such as the Sleep Republic Mattress or Eva Mattress) but it should be strong enough to accommodate people of most sizes.
The finer details
Edge support on the Zen Sleep Hybrid Mattress is reasonable. This is thanks to a ‘foam edge encasement’ which does indicate Zen Sleep’s attention to detail. Partner disturbance is noticeable but certainly not significant.
Overall build quality is a little behind the leading products in the market, but it still stands up fairly well. This also must be considered in context of its price (see prices further down).
Zen Sleep offers a reassuring 100 night trial period and a 10 year warranty. The trial period is handy as it allows you to really ‘try before you buy’. It’s also worth noting that this mattress comes with 2 free pillows and a free mattress protector, hugely strengthening its value for money proposition.
It’s worth noting that the comfort foams used in this mattress are certified as non-toxic by CertiPUR-US®, one of the world’s leading authorities in foam and fabric testing.
Please note that we do not recommend the Zen Sleep Hybrid Mattress to be used with an adjustable (electric) bed base. Here is our full list of mattresses that are compatible with an adjustable bed base.
The Zen Sleep Hybrid Mattress is available in 5 sizes (king, queen, double, king single, and single size) so it should accommodate most sleeping situations. Here are Australia’s standard bed (mattress) sizes in 2021.
The Zen Sleep Hybrid Mattress is a good ‘all-rounder’ at a competitive price. It has a solid trial period and comes with free bedding (pillows, protector).

Zen Sleep Hybrid Mattress
The best of both worlds – Cloud like comfort – Cooling airflow – No motion transfer – The right support
Firm but bouncy Supportive and breathable but can be too firm and bouncy.
Introducing a 7 Zone Mattress
The mattress coils are divided into 7 ‘zones’: the middle zone has thicker coils to provide extra support to the sleeper’s midsection and stomach, while the top and bottom zones have thinner coils that cradle the head, neck, shoulders, and legs. This results in even weight distribution and targeted pain relief for most sleepers.
The Best of Both Worlds. Hybrid mattresses are the latest trends in the mattress world. Hybrid mattresses combine top layer made of Gel Memory Foam & Latex, Bottom layer made of new generation an individual wrapped spring system to deliver the benefits of both technologies.
