As you have found, closing the door will only frustrate them and they will damage the door and the carpet around the area.  

I would put them in a spare bedroom or laundry room at night where they have all they need, (beds, food, water, litter box) and will learn to sleep without bothering you.  Play with them in the evening hours so they are tired and want to sleep at night.  Cats are nocturnal and consequently have to adjust to human schedule of sleeping nights, but millions of cats do.  perhaps once they have learned to sleep nights, you can let them have access to your bedroom again.
