In the simplest of terms a trundle bed is a separate compartment that resides under a bed frame (like a bunk bed) and holds a mattress. This can then be pulled out when you have company and viola creates an instant sleep space for guests.

Fun fact – the name for the trundle bed (also called a truckle bed or low bed) comes from the trundles, or casters, that were attached to the feet so that it could be pushed under the master bed when it was not in use. The bed was originally intended for servants, who used to sleep in their employer’s room so as to be near at hand.
