Answer: 
No bottom, but rather than using plywood and drilling drainage holes, first place a good layer of clean cardboard as a biodegradable weed barrier then add chicken wire as a "bottom" if you have concerns with critters coming up from underneath. Then fill with a nice mix if soul and compost and water more often than a regular bed (the drainage is nice!). Rather short at 6" high but a good starter bed.

Answer: 
No, but you should use plywood to add one. This allows you to dictate the composition of your soil. It also keeps weeds to a minimum AND it keeps voles, moles, and gophers out! Drill holes in it for drainage purposes. - Omaha Master Gardener

Sounds like a great setup
A little confusing though with so much info.
I used to have a 30'x 16' garden (pre kids ('93), pre divorce '10) with every veggie organic and growing 8' on all types DIY trellses...
Now in 3rd rental and having to improvise. I have a 2-3' deep growing space along the back brick wall of the rental house,and have to avoid all plumbing and electrical lines coming from the house. So a raised bed is really the only solution.
There is a HUGE yard but the animals will eat anything and everything (home all surrounded by woods and creek). There is an old raised bed in the yard though it is full of weeds, unlevel, and the wood sides appear rotten so it's really unusable. Due to current health I'm no longer able to get out and prepare (haul dirt, till ground, build trellises, etc) nor maintain a big space.
So a raised bed is really the only solution, and multi-levels seem appropriate for the space. The back wall of this rental house is on the South side at the patio, so the area receives full sun nearly all day (until 3pm or so when shadowed by sun moving to the left side of a screened porch).
Could you possible upload pictures of your garden setup?
Thank You.

One side of the yard is strawbweeies on to while the other is three different spice plants.
I then set a system 2-high next to the first 3-high system. Similar building pattern but now the plants are reserved for perennials.
The last tier in the line is actually only 1-tier high (6") and I grow a varying selection of popular annuals in this one. So, what i've got is 1 high, 2 high, and 3 high in a line, a second set of the same is parked abut 6 foot from the first one. In between, connecting them, is a garden arborwhen I put growers and vines along with two benches facing each other. Read Less

Answer: 
I stacked two so yes you can but there are no "hooks" to keep them in place. Only the soil does that but be careful, my workers hit the corner of the bottom one after it was filled and even though they got it back, it wasn't the same so had to buy a strap to wrap around that bottom one so the sides don't pop apart. Having said that, I planted and all is fine.

You could but it'll limit the amount of soil and how it drains given the slope. ***However, If you really want to do it; Buy 1' or preferably 2' rebar) and pound them in on the outside edges to the about the depth of the box. It'll hold it in place.

Answer: 
I've used this system on a couple slopes in the past. Here's one trick I used. Rather than use all four sides to create a square, I broke up the kit using the slope to form a back wall while using the four straight boards to create the side and front sides. Let me see if I can give you a test version of what I did.

I've used this system on a couple slopes in the past. Here's one trick I used. Rather than use all four sides to create a square, I broke up the kit using the slope to form a back wall while using the four straight boards to create the side and front sides. Let me see if I can give you a test version of what I did.
The crude picture shows the top of the slope above the growing kit. The left diagram shows the use of all 4 sides of the wood in use; this is good for a low slop. For a higher slope I've used the actual slope to create a dirt back wall. In a way, it became a terraced look by having the 4 pieces of wood now create two side and then a front that is two sides wide. In one project, I bought three of these raised beds, set them into the slope -- reserving what would normally be the backside wood -- and then built it so that I had a single wide raised bed that was 4 foot deep -- going into the slope -- and 12 feet wide.
Of course, it depends on the slant of the slope, if it is sharp then you may find this method a good way to create a quasi-terrace look. If it is a low slope then you can use the full 4-sided kit and simply use some of the dirt inside the square to level it out so that you don't lose any good topsoil. Read Less

Answer: 
A gentle slope should be fine, but more than a few degrees of slope may result in slippage due to the weight of the soil/mulch inside the planter. If your slope is more than a few degrees I recommend using durable anchor stakes with this or any other raised bed.

The four walls are not flexible and they make a perfect square box garden. If the sloped area can ensure that the garden box is leveled , then yes. But if some sides are lower than others, there will be a gap and soil will seep out.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 493 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love these! The hundreds of other positive reviews are what drew me to this product, as well as the price. We had raised cedar beds years ago that finally rotted and I was looking for an alternative. I was skeptical about the 6 inch height, but it turns out that is just fine. There's not much to these--4 boards and 4 corner pieces. Once you get dirt in them, they aren't going anywhere. You will want to level the ground where you put these or they will look funky. We originally ordered 4 and liked them so much, we ordered 4 more. I highly recommend. August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vegetable Gardening Made Easy I'm a gardener, it's my favorite thing in the summer. When purchasing our new home I needed something easy and that looked nice - this did both. I purchased two kits and was able to add another 42 inches to the length by eliminating the 4th side on each and expanding the middle. They are lightweight - yet solid and look really nice. It took 18 bags of Topsoil/peat/manure to fill. The only reason I went 4/5 stars - they would be perfect if they included stakes. It was an easy side purchase - but for the money it was spot on. Will probably purchase 2 more next year! May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth every penny and more! Purchased 2 of these for an urban garden project. It was very easy to assemble and looks great. I can't wait to add more next year! June 7, 2016

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value for money I'm a first time gardener & loved using this raised garden bed kit. It is made of composite materials, easy to assemble, and durable. It measures 42 in x 42 in x 6 in, and you get what you pay for, which is a functional product. I bought five early in spring, filled it with soil & compost from Costco, put up my square foot garden & the plants have started growing!! Ordered a few more to expand the garden. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Composite material is cheap and funtional I love my Greenland gardener raised bed kits. I also ordered directly from the seller because I needed to customize my kits with 3way posts and they send me clips to stack the boards making a 12" instead of 6". They have an amazing customer service but home depot has the best prices. May 24, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by poor craftsmanship, cheap material The material is some what particle board, compressed saw dust coated in wax. The corner brackets are terribly machined, do not line up and if the bed is not on a completely flat surface, sides will not stay even. I put tiny nails to have corners stay flush, cracks the weak wood. If the soil is heavy, the middle will start to bow out, just look at some of other reviewers pictures. I flipped the wood, have the lines facing outward. Looks nicer. the material looks so cheap, i don't know how long it will hold. Next time, getting some wood and nailing them together. Made in the USA! yay April 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best way for townhouse gardening Economical, good looking and quick and easy assembly. The stacking hooks did not come in the boxes but after contacting the company they were delivered in days. I live in a small townhouse and two double stacked 4x4 beds fit perfect. Can't wait to get gardening. May 3, 2016
