This is a large cage do plenty of space for a Syrian hamster. However the gaps round the top and corners are too wide and our hamster kept escaping. There is a comment about this on the product guide but we’re we’re not able to make the gap smaller without making the next bar below bigger. In the end we have had to buy a plastic trim snd attach this round all the corners to prevent the hamster getting out. I don’t think I would recommend this cage for a hamster or certainly not until perhaps they were fully grown
I bought this as a holiday cage for our group of male rats. The cage is a really good size for the money and solidly built. I don't think we will use the wooden ledges as they look like they would start to smell quite quickly. The cage packs flat which was our main reason (along with the size) for selecting it. My only real criticism is with the plastic clips to attache the base to the wire cage. It takes an unreasonable amount of pressure to clip them (if you can even succeed) and when we unclipped them to put the cage away, one broke (due to the stress on the plastic). We'll have to come up with an alternative like garden wire to use as I think if we just asked for a replacement for the clip, the same thing would happen again. After asking other owners of this cage this seems to me a common difficulty with this cage and really needs looking at.
Bought this cage for my 3 rats to downsize from the Blenheim Extra Tall until I can move house and have more space. This cage is fantastic for the price for a small group - it's very large despite looking quite small in photos. The bar spacing is small and the bars themselves are very good quality metal, the door is relatively large and top door will fit a 16" tiktak wheel through it (which was a pleasant surprise!). The plastic tray is fairly deep so great for adding substrate. It is a bit complicated to put together at first but we got there in the end! I haven't used the ladders/ledges as I took them out in order to give me more space to hang ropes/hammocks/bridges tunnels etc. Delivery was fast and cage comes flat packed. Would definitely recommend this cage.
The cage is a good size for my rats The only issue I have had with it is when it arrived, the cage was damaged and some of the bars where bent.
Brilliant size cage for Syrian hamster. Ours loves to climb and dig so the height of the cage and the depth of the tray are ideal. The spacing of the bars along the corners are a bit wide, I think small or young hamsters could maybe squeeze through but we bent the bars slightly as suggested on the website and secured them with some cable ties and have had no escapes so far. Have previously kept rats and this cage would definitely be suitable for them as well. Product arrived in perfect condition although there was a delay at the ports out with LPWs control (covid and brexit), but the customer service team were very helpful and kept me updated when they were expecting the shipment to arrive. Fantastic service and product.
