Product description

Fun wood cabin for hamsters, with 4 rooms, 1 wooden ramp, cann be used to store food, imitates natural hamster burrows, encourages the natural nesting behaviour of your hamster, made of natural wood.

The arrangement of the separate chambers in this playhouse and cabin are reminiscent of the natural underground habitat of hamsters in the wild, and can also be used to store food. A perfect little den for your hamster to store up treats, play or snooze, this cabin encourages your hamster's natural burrowing and nesting instincts.

The playhouse has 4 rooms. In the centre are the two dark sleeping areas, and the room at the back has a wooden ramp leading up to an entrance in the roof. Using the little round entrances, your hamster can scurry from room to room exploring, or snuggle down for a quick nap. The large roof of the cabin also provides a great surface for lying around or playing. It is totally natural and harmless for your pet to gnaw on this cabin - it is made of natural, untreated wood, and gnawing can help rodents to keep their teeth short and healthy.

She loves it!!!!
As soon as i placed this new hideaway in her cage, she loved it. She soon started collecting bedding and made it her new favourite place to sleep.

Fab cabin !
This cabin is so much bigger then expected. It’s built well and my hamster adores it. She’s got a room for food and a room for sleeping in ! The only thing, and it’s a small observation, the roof doesn’t slot onto the top of the cabin, it rests on top so can slip a bit but I’ve put something on top to weigh it down a bit to stop it moving. Love it though and great value for money.

Great for a Russian Hamster
My russian hamster loves this cabin as it enables him to burrow which is the natural way to live for hamsters. I would recommend this for russian hamsters and robos and small syrians. Not really great for large syrians due to the narrow corner inside as the animal ascends up the ladder.

I bought this for my Syrian hamster. I removed the middle wall and ramp to give her more space, and also painted the inside with Plastikote in case she urinated on it. After these adjustments, the cabin made a good home, and she quickly relocated her nest to the middle compartment. However, I removed a star as the inside is not quite as clean and smooth as it appears in the picture. It's quite rough and some wood splinters were poking out and had to be removed, and the walls lightly sanded.

Great for a dwarf
Love this cabin for my Roborovski hamster. It is ideally-sized inside for a dwarf hamster but definitely not for a Syrian. It takes up a lot of room in the tank but with a ladder the hamster can make use of the space on the roof.

great nest box
my Syrian hamster seems very happy with this. She uses one of the rooms for sleeping in and the adjoining one for storing food and bedding. She has blocked up the ramp and roof entrance with bedding. The flat roof is good for putting her wheel on. It is nice and dark.Being wood it is more breathable than plastin nest boxes and her bedding gets less damp.

Great den
Really pleasantly surprised with this. My Syrian hamster loves it. My only tiny criticism is that the exit hole by the stairs is quite small - much too small for my (slightly on the large side) Syrian to fit through, which is a shame. Nonetheless still a great product and I love that she can run around on top of it too.

This is a lovely product but after a while of gnawing the nails start to show. The lid is made with no nails and I don't know why the maze is not made in a similar manner.
: 5/5
It's a very good quality cabin and my dwarf hamster loves it. He uses the large room for storing food, the small ones for sleeping and the space underneath the wooden ramp as an en-suite bathroom. Before you purchase it, make sure you have plenty of space for this in the cage as it's really big. It's the perfect size for dwarf hamsters but I'm not sure if it's ok for syrian hamsters.

Gerbils love it!
My two gerbils love this house, it is perfect for snuggling up and running around. They chew it a lot but it is thick wood so will last a while. I bought it on special offer - I don't think it's worth the original price.

My Dawarf Hamster loves this
bought this as a play area for my rescue hamster put it in large cardboard box that was to be a play area. Pippin had other ideas moved in straight away so play area becomes new home. Big success. May have to get another for second level when have more permanent large area

The best den for a small rodent
If i could only have one thing in my gerbils tank it would be this. They chew it, sleep in it, hide food in it, climb on it. It is their favorite item and they spend hours in it every day, it may seem a little pricey but don't be tempted to buy a hidey hut or log cabin instead. This has 4 compartments and a ramp area to climb to the top of the playhouse. It is natural and looks brilliant in my tank, could be used under the substrate for gerbils and hamsters or on top. Either way its the best item i've every bought them!

brilliant, my dwarf hamsters love it :)
My dwarf hamsters have these as their house - they're great! Dark, secure and cosy. It's interesting to see which compartments they use as food store, toilet, bed. I like that they mimic the natural burrowing systems they'd have in the wild and the removable lid means cleaning up is nice and easy. It also doubles up as a good 2nd level for a wheel/food bowl/sand bath :) I like it so much I am buying another for my baby winter white who is now tame enough to have one!

Perfect for Syrian Hamsters
My Syrian, Bear, absolutely loves this gorgeous den. It appeals to their natural behaviour as it's dark, cosy & has different compartments for stashing food, cosying up as well as different exits. It is large so be careful to measure your cage. We have the Savic Hamster Heaven which is 80 cms wide, so turning this longways, it still only takes up about a third of the cage & fits under the shelf whilst still allowing room for Bear, between the shelf & top of the den, to wander about. He used to like the 2 huts which came with the cage but as another reviewer said, immediately abandoned those to set up home in his new hammy lodge/den. To sum up, hamsters will love this, it makes a great addition to your cage, mimics the dark, underground tunnels where they would naturally live & I agree with the reviewer who said that their little faces/noses peaking out through the hole is uber-cute!!

Brilliant home for animals!
I bought this for my group of female mice. It's huge with lots of rooms and a nice solid top so i can add toys on top of it too so not taking up much more space. My girls love it and moved into it straight away, abandoning all their old huts. I like it so much I've ordered another for my hamster!

What a great buy!
I bought this for my Syrian hamster to go inside her new, bigger cage. She took to it immediately and wasted no time setting up home in it. The top of it also doubles up as a platform. She loves it and looks so cute when she peaks her head out of the holes. Strongly recommended.
: 5/5
This is the best product I have found for my hamster. She loves it. She seems to feel a lot happier since I got it. Once it has bedding put in it makes a lovely comforting place for her to relax and sleep in. She always takes her favourite food and stores it in there to. She spends a lot of time in there. Its a very good size she has 4 rooms to pick from. I'm so glad I got it.
