That is the hatch and ladder which lead down to the flight attendant crew rest. There should be a few photos of what it's like down there floating around on airliners.net. I believe that they are of Air Canada. Also, there are a couple of photos from Austrian and Lufthansa showing the LD containers in which they can be housed.

Yeah, Qantas. KLM T7s have them, too. FAA Regulation puts flight crews in 8 hr sectors, so, if your flying over 8 hr sectors and you have a full cabin, your gonna wanna put your sleepy crew somewhere!! This is also for off-shift FAs, too.
This is actually different. These mobile crew rest pods actually take up part of the cargo capacity. The newer and retrofitted T7s have their crew rest in a deck above the main cabin. This saves both weight and cargo space.
