I bought this amongst other wooden items for my hamster. I went for the guinea pig size cabin as I read the hamster size was way too small. This is perfect! Spacious and built well. Only one criticism, the stair attachment had a sharp nail sticking out so I’ve removed it and replace it with steps, less steep for my hamster to climb. Would recommend this item but just check it over for sharp bits before using. My hamster really loves it. She sits on the roof !

2 storey cabin
Our guinea pig Buttons loves his new home. The bottom is perfect size for him to sleep in and he is a very big guinea pig. I had already read on here that the top was too small for an adult guinea pig and people used it as a hay store so I’ve done exactly the same and Buttons seems really happy with that. Would highly recommend.

My Rats Love This
Bought this for my two rats and they both love it. Sleep in it all the time, they prefer it to their hammock. Went for the larger one intended for guinea pigs and there's plenty room. My one concern would be the dowels that keep the upper floor in place seem a bit flimsy and as I need to take the top off to get it out of the cage for cleaning, I'm worried they might snap. But it hasn't happened yet.

Good size and use
I love how this cabin has multi uses. My Guinea Pigs love to jump onto the room, sleep in the two sections and grow on the house to keep their teeth down. It is a good size for now but the top house it a little too low and so they will grow out of it, the top section has a smooth wood floor prone to staining and also makes it slippery to walk on so I had to put a blanket down. They don’t really use the ramp as it is too steep and they much prefer jumping. I like how you can remove the ramp tho.

Syrian hamster loves it
I brought this for my Syrian hamster and he seems to love it having the two levels and it was so easy to put together

It's so cute!!!
I ordered it on a Thursday and it was delivered on the Saturday, it was really quick! It's for my two male guinea pigs. And it's perfect! Nice and easy to put together. It's a good size, but the top bit could be a bit better as The piggies couldn't fit in it only their heads :-) but for the price it's really good and it's different from the ones u can buy elsewhere!
Awesome for guinea pig's
Bought this with just an idea to use the top part as a hay holder/treat hideaway. Both of my guinea pigs love this with the bigger one hogging the bottom hideaway.

Great for degus!
my degus love this house its big enough for them to both fit in (large house) and they love nibbling the windows to create more holes

For the price its not bad but is cheaply made and isnt the same quality as the ones you see in pet shops for the RRP.
No good for a syrian hamster, ive ordered 2 and on one of them the upstairs door is only 1 1/2cm wide!
Overall for the price its a cute little hidy house but probably better for mice.

Although the quality of this is great and the price is fantastic, it is very small. Luckily I knew this on purchasing it, and knew it would be ok for my Roborovski hamsters. Unfortunatly any other species would not be able to fit through the openings and it could pose a potential hazard if they had their pouches full and got stuck. So small size for Roborovski hamsters only!

Large size house for guinea pigs
We ordered the larger of the sizes for our two guinea pigs boys. After reading the reviews before hand we knew that there would be a possibility that the upper door would be too small for them to pass through. This was ideal however as we planned to use it as a hayloft, we stuff hay into the little upper level and they sit on the floor outside of the door and snack away. The lower half is a lovely size and plenty roomy enough for our little pigs. They are happy hopping up onto the upper level and even the roof, and are very comfortable having little naps in the lower section and it has become a very fast favourite. Study enough, even the ramp although connected by little wooden pins once down the ramp is secure even if at first glance looked a little less so. Happy pigs and happy owners.
Small Or large?
For a syrian hamster, I did not know whether to go for the small house or the large, so I decided to go for both! The small house is tiny and I would only recommend it is used for ants or something tiny!! The large house is being used just now in my cambridge cage, hamster loves it, she sleeps in the bottom and her food is kept on the top level, it does take up a lot of room so I'm not sure how long I will keep it in the cage before changing things round. For the price, these houses are brilliant!
Got it for my 2 guinea pigs and they love it. They like to nibble on it too. Had to hammer in a small nail inside the big house when I got it, but that was no bother at all. I use top part of the house for treats and my guinea pigs manage to get in&out of top house easily just now. It is a great product and it looks lovely in our c&c cage. Great price too.

Perfect size for my rats -the larger one. They love it .Looks really good and amazing price from zooplus as always :)
The large size is perfect for Syrian Hamsters
I have had the small size one in the past and it is tiny, I would only recommend that for mice.
The large size is perfect for Syrians, rats, gerbils, degus, etc but on the small side for guinea pigs.
My Syrian loves his, he uses the bottom for sleeping in and the top as a look out & play area.
It comfortably fits with space to spare in an Alaska cage but is a bit tight height wise in a hamster heaven. I will definitely buy them again in the future

Lovely little house
I purchased this for my love bird who loves to demolish cage furniture in the spirit of good house keeping. The door was a little too small for her so I made it bigger. She absolutely loves gnawing it. Will be buying another once she finishes this one off!

Buy Guinea size for a Syrian
My Syrian hamster is a big girl so I bought the larger size fpr her after reading the reviews, good decision, she loves it!
She's very adventurous so the ample space and height are good for her to explore. She has put all her bedding underneath the ramp giving her pretty much the full house as a play space and climbing frame.
It is big though, I have the Hamster Heaven and I've had to take out a shelf to fit it in but I think the house is more exciting.

very good value guinea pig hide
well made. young guinea pigs hide in bottom or climb on top. good bed with small fleece blanket in the bottom. might be too small for large guinea pigs.
