I have slept many nights in the top bunk, it is a tight squeeze and I would recommend additional padding. Being about 5'11" getting up and down is a little challenging since you have to tuck up underneath the cabinets. I am in my mid 30s and consider it bearable, but can't imagine someone in there 50s or 60s having much fun up there.

The top of the lower bed matress is 17 inches high.

I'm 'er.... in my 60s. I think I could do okay in the top bunk, but the bottom bunk (seeing that top bunk inches away from my nose), not so much.... YMMV

Served on a US Navy ship with three high bunk beds, turning over my shoulder cleared the one above me by maybe 2 inches. Snug quarters (with bed belts for rough seas...like seat belts in cars.) You get used to it after 3-4 months.
