Opinions on pocket door to basement stairs?

last month

We're considering replacing a standard door to the basement with a pocket door. When it is open, the existing 28" door blocks the hallway from the living room to the bathroom and bedrooms. I'm okay with writing that off as a quirk of an older home, however it's been suggested that we replace it with a pocket door to save space. I'm concerned about doing so for safety reasons with small children around. Any advice? Does anyone have a pocket door to their basement?
