Cathay Pacific uses the sleeper cabin on its Hong Kong - Anchorage - Toronto flight. I have personally been in this cabin and also seen it from the cargo hold outside. It is pressurized and is the size of two LD3, or one LD6 baggage containers. I must say the quarters inside are quite small and would not recommend anybody over six feet trying to use them.

Air France uses the crew rest area on its A340s. One of the advtanges of this system over the OHCRF (Over-Head Crew Rest Facility) is that you can easily get the crew rest container out of the aircraft to clean it up (whereas you need to be in the aircraft for thr OHCRF).
However on routes where there aren't any payload restricton, crew rest takes up some place from cargo containers. And the crew rest on the lower is really narrow.

Looks just like the LD-11 lower lobe crew rests we use on our 777. These aren't as easy to remove as one may believe, there are after all power and ac connections to deal with, it would be much easier to clean on board. Also the module is not a pressure unit, the lower cargo deck is pressurized.
