I built a very solid bunk bed from maple. You may draw some inspiration on knock-down joinery, dimensions, etc from this project.
I have 3 kids, and I’ve been on the top bunk with the 3 of them and never ever felt unsafe.

FWIW we fully disassembled this year, moved to a new home, and put it right back together. The joinery worked out perfectly.

Be aware, maple is stronger and stiffer than poplar; more expensive though.
