Hammy home is superb, easily put together with clear instructions, i ordered the shelves at the same time and again clear instructions on how to fit, Hamster Homes are a superb company selling quality homes for our beloved pets, would definitely recommend
Very pleased with my New Guinea pig cage great improvement for example no screws showing on inside for fixing the Perspex. I also have a 120x60cm bought 3 years ago. So easy to clean out unlike the C&C cages the hay goes everywhere. Highly recommended. Thanks for great customer service which is unfortunately unusual these days. Ann Wells
This cage is one of the best cages I’ve seen to put a hamster in the length and height is a perfect size any hamster including a Syrian will look small in this for how big it is.It’s a perfect height to have a good few inches of bedding in for them to burrow and make hides in and you have a lot of space to add a big wheel,tunnels,hide chambers,ladders,sand baths etc
Very high quality enclosure that our future hamster is sure to love! The customer service was fantastic; after receiving the message that the enclosure was soon to be posted, I had placed a second order for some accessories, and they immediately followed up with another message offering to post them together so they'd arrive at the same time. The enclosure came with very easy to follow instructions for assembly and we're so happy with the result. The accessories I ordered were also very high in quality. I'll definitely be ordering from here again! Thank you so much 🙂
Hutch update: I first posted in 2020 - since then I have purchased 4 more hutches for our various pods of guinea-pigs (mainly duos). The original cage is still going strong. There has been no deterioration to the structure, and due to the round 'hobbit-house' style doors, with access to a run area, it houses our two oldest girls alongside two now year-old rescues. These products are great! What I would say, though, is always check you have closed the 'locking' bar on both sides - one of ours is an escape artist and has moved the little bar on the inside!
Wow! Just amazing! I can’t thank Kate & the team enough for our new cage - a complete transformation for us! Our guinea pigs were initially in a two-storey wired hutch with removable flooring from Amazon… It didn’t take long to discover there were various inconveniences with this. It was incredibly difficult to clean. Hay & toilet-mess was kicked out of the wire mesh. And despite getting a relatively large hutch, it just didn’t offer enough space for our boys. A Google-search later & I came across Hamster Homes. It wasn’t an easy decision having only just invested in a brand-new cage. I did consider buying a table from IKEA to put the cage on, but in the end went for the 180cm version with Perspex window & matching stand and have absolutely zero regrets. Service & delivery were all communicated well. The cage is brilliant quality, incredibly easy to assemble (the base is already fully assembled). Slots onto the stand easily, held stable by raised rubber corners and allows for handy tub storage space underneath (actually saving floor-space). We now have a lovely clear & bright view of our boys… and they absolutely love the open space. Whilst the cage/stand combo does cost more, I couldn’t recommend it enough as the value has been absolutely worth it.
We bought this for our male Syrian hammy and are so pleased we did. He's gone from being a big hamster in a small home to a tiny hammy in a huge home! It is so spacious and well-built. There is room for lots of burrow spots, a large wheel, a large running saucer, hides and tunnels. Our hamster is so happy and comfortable in his new environment. We love being able to see him more often now thanks to the extra space and the perspex front. It's easy to spot clean & clean as the lid can be propped open. Thank you for making and delivering such a perfect habitat.
After searching the internet for a very long time for a suitable home for my hamster, I finally came across hamster homes. The customer service I received from Kate was amazing, and the home itself is very good quality. Myself and my partner have 0 knowledge of building, and we did struggle slightly to put this home together, however we managed it and I don't think the instructions or assembly could be made any simpler. It does feel very large and I put in an adequate amount of bedding for burrowing - I managed around 8 inches, but if you are set on your hamster having 10 inches plus of burrowing room you may find that difficult because of the space needed for a large wheel. I placed some of the packaging cardboard onto the base to help soak up wee. I would recommend doing so as my hamster has already saturated some areas of the cardboard. I have to say, compared to other hamster enclosures on the market, I don't believe you will find one as good as quality as this, and from a company with such excellent customer service. Kate was most helpful. I am very happy with my new hamster home, as is Maple (the hamster!). Thank you Hamster Homes!
absolutely delighted with the cage, looks amazing and very well made so easy to put together with the very clear instructions, looks so much better than any cage i,ve seen in the shops and is just lovely, i can,t say enough good things about it, also excellent customer service keeping you informed, thankyou
Easy to assemble especially when I realised I had a pozidriv screwdriver. Customer service was great. I would love if they offered an enclosure with greater depth for bedding or maybe a topper. With shelves or a hide my hamster can reach the edges which gets a little worrying but luckily the lid isn't light so no worries when it's shut.
Just wanted to tell you how impressed we are with our new guinea pig cage. You were so brilliant in regards to delivery and ensuring it arrived on time for my daughters birthday. It came beautifully packaged and the instructions for set up were super easy. It looks lovely in our daughters room! Thank you so so much. Lisa
I use this enclosure for my Syrian Hamster Coconut and she absolutely loves it! Lots of space for her to burrow and get the proper enrichment that hamsters need. Sturdy and secure & was easy to assemble 🙂 really happy that I found this company!!
Cage was very easy to assemble and looks great! Couldn't be happier, hamster-homes customer service was excellent as well. When I accidentally ordered a bottle that was too large alongside this cage they offered to replace it with a smaller one and throw in a bendy bridge to cover the cost which was very nice of them.
Our guinea pigs love the house. It has provided a safe and comfortable hidey which they both fit into comfortably. The ramp allows them to access the roof providing another space for them to enjoy. (Although they often choose to just jump onto the roof rather than using the ramp!) We often put some nice veggie treats up there. Like the enclosure we bought, the quality is great.
So pleased with the new cage, which is very well made and provides plenty of space for our 3 guinea pigs. I wanted something that would fit in with our decor and be visually attractive and this is it. Straightforward to assemble with clear instructions and being able to lift the top off the base means its easy to clean and maintain. Excellent customer service and communication from Kate - unfortunately one section of the base was damaged on delivery but on notification a new part was immediately dispatched and with us within a few days. Now just waiting to order the stand when they come back into stock to complete the set up. Thank you!
100% happy with the communication from Kate and with the actual cage itself! It’s the perfect size for our 2 boys as they have outgrown their previous one but now they will have plenty of space 🙂 - I am looking forward to seeing them settle in well with their new cage. Thank you so much xXx
An amazing enclosure for my syrian hamster giving him the space to display natural behaviours. Something that is often impossible in the modern small pet shop cages. Excellent customer service, excellent build quality. Minimal self assembly required which I managed single handedly due to the clear and concise instructions. The item was also well packed and arrived in perfect condition. A solid top quality enclosure that is well worth the money.
We all absolutely LOVE the cage. It is so beautifully made and is very aesthetically pleasing! Our little hamster had her first full night in there last night and loved it too. The shelves are great. My husband said they were very easy to put in the cage and took no more than 5 minutes because of the pre drilled holes, and the instructions are very straightforward. We are extremely pleased with our cage and shelves and wouldn't hesitate to recommend your company on.
Fantastic new home for our guineas! The customer service was fantastic, the cage and stand are both exactly what we wanted. Our girls love their new piggy palace and we couldn't be happier with it!
I have three extremely happy guinea pigs! They're almost skiing down the ramp and loving the popcorn onto the floor. Also, I wanted to say that this was the easiest thing I've ever put together. The coloured dots are inspired and the predrilled holes make it so simple. I have a question - can a third tier go on the top? HAMSTER HOMES REPLY - Yes Rachel you can add another tier. We recommend a maximum of 3 stacked tiers. See our facebook page for some customer examples.
Just wanted to feedback to say how amazing the hutch and stand is. Thank you it's lovely! Everyone who has seen it are impressed as are we and the call we had too was so nice. It's a brilliant product and our guinea pigs certainly love their new home. Thank you again. Sam
Our 3 guinea pigs seem very taken with their new home: there was much 'popcorning' going on and much racing around when they went into the Hamster Home cage for the first time. The cage is very well made with no sharp edges to catch inquisitive noses, and the sturdy cardboard packages has been repurposed to give protection for the base. The construction takes very little time as the instructions are blissfully straightforward. We also opted for the perspex front panel which seems sturdy. I am back to order a bedding box and hayrack. Thank you for informative and prompt service all round!
My new piggy home arrived on time on Friday, my piggies moved in on Saturday! The packaging was fantastic, everything arrived safe and sound. Putting it together was super simple, made even easier by the good quality components and careful workmanship. One suggestion: Some little handles on the main section would help me to lift it on and off for cleaning.
5 squeaks from the Livingston piggies and we have just placed an order for another one, going for the 180cm next. Simple, very well made enclosure that is perfect for guinea pigs and looks lovely in our living room which is a bonus for us. Straightforward to assemble and not long to wait between ordering and receiving the product. The stand is perfect and worth going for too.
Like the pet home itself, the stand was easy to assemble as long as you follow the well written instructions. It comes together really well and the pet home slots into it perfectly to form a solid, attractive structure. The stand is good value and provides ample storage underneath the hamster home.
This was our second order as we decided to enlarge the space for our two guinea pigs. The cages bought a year apart are both of excellent quality, very well finished and really simple to put together. Kate provided valuable advice and help with helping us make an idea into reality of connecting 2 cages with an interconnecting door! We have two happy chilled piggies!
Great house for the guinea pigs, they enjoy spending time in it and on it. Part of a larger order that we've very happy with overall. One slight issue we've had is that no matter how hard we try the ladded won't stay attached - as soon as one of the guinea pigs runs under it they manage to knock it off. However, it doesn't stop them enjoying the roof as they just jump onto it instead! HAMSTER HOMES REPLY: Hi Ben. Thanks for making us aware of this issue. We've now changed the design to prevent the ramp from slipping off. Many thanks for your feedback!
This is the first cage we've bought and are very happy with it. Kate was very quick to respond to queries about what we needed and even delivered it to is. The guinea pigs are very happy in their new home!
This is the third cage I’ve bought from Kate and is a size upgrade on the previous ones. Absolutely great as always and the removable folding roof is really handy. The pigs seem very happy. Thanks
Really happy with large cage for our children's first pets. Great good size for two guinea pigs and we also ordered the stand so it's a nice height for interacting with and storing all their paraphernalia. Good quality product which will hopefully last for years (we put some pond liner down under fleece, with puppy pads in between, to protect the wood). Although it turned up without full instructions Kate was super prompt and helpful at rectifying this which shows all the benefits of ordering from an independent business and allowed us to get it built for Christmas (my 7 & 9 yds helped me build it). Will recommend to friends HAMSTER HOMES REPLY: Thanks for the great review Tim, despite having forgotten to put the instructions in the box! Glad you got it sorted in time for Christmas.
Having spent weeks researching which cage to get my two guinea pigs, I couldn't be happier that I decided to order from here. The 150cm cage is the perfect size, gives the guinea pigs loads of room to run around & they have been popcorning constantly since they moved in. Kate was great with speedy replies and lots of answers to (the many) questions I had. The cage was so easy to put together and I done it all myself within about 10 mins! Lovely quality & looks great in my living room 🙂 Thank you again, 2 very happy piggies x
This is a perfect home for our two rescue guinea girl pigs. We have relatively small, but tall rooms in our house, so two tiers seemed a good way to go. It’s beautifully crafted, and was easy to assemble. We also got it on wheels, so during the working week the girls are wheeled into the home office, and at the weekend they’re wheeled into the family room at the back of the house. I’ve knocked one star off purely because the ramps, as beautifully made as they are, are too steep and slippery for our girls. We had to line them with carpet before they would use them, and occasionally need to put a block under the end of the larger ramp to lessen the gradient, or have to put two play tunnels (made of fleece) along the length of the ramp to encourage them to use it. That said, this may just be our girls and that other piggies wouldn’t be so fazed by it. We also need to install a balcony along the edge of the loft hatch as they keep rolling their rigid play tunnel into it and blocking it up. But it’s a fab cage, and everyone who’s seem it has admired it! HAMSTER HOMES REPLY: Thanks Rachel for the constructive feedback about the ramp - we've already made design changes as a result of your comments.
I ordered this cage for 2 guinea pigs and it is fantastic. There is so much room inside it for my piggies and it is much better than anything else I have seen. The cage and stand I ordered with it were easily assembled and another bonus is that cleaning it out is made very straightforward due to the fact that the base can by separated from the rest of the cage. I would highly recommend this cage to anyone considering buying it.
You've made one little pig very happy indeed! My adopted boar probably thinks he must have died and gone to piggy heaven 😉 He spent most of his life alone in a cold garage (he fell out with the other boys the breeder had), so it's a massive change for the better for him. Hopefully a suitable lady friend will join him soon to enjoy the good life together. 😉 More practical infor: the cage was really easy to put together with all holes pre-drilled and all bolts and screws supplied. The wood is good quality, not brittle. I've also ordered a stand and everything fits together perfectly. Thank you from both myself and Moomin 😉
We purchased the extra large guinea pig cage for our three guinea pigs as we wanted them to have lots of space to run around .we are so pleased with the cage it is amazing and beautifully made and with Kate’s simple instructions it was so easy to put together .our piggies love their new home .
I am so happy with my guinea pig cage. It is very well made and much more attractive than plastic indoor cages I have had in the past. At first I opted for an open top cage, however I have 2 very inquisitive baby piggies who like to sit on top of their houses and reach up to the top of the cage. I contacted Kate and she gave me options of the different types of roofs she could make and once I had chosen it was soon on its way to me. I have 2 Guinea pig houses which are lovely. Quite often my 2 Guinea pigs will be together in one, but sometimes like their own space and I will find one in each. I would also recommend the haystack as it keeps the hay off the floor and also my Guinea pigs seem to love reaching up to it. So much more exciting than eating off the floor! Thank you so much for all you help and a lovely cage.
I originally ordered this 2 tier hutch, but then changed my order to a 180cm x 60cm single tier hutch - perfect for 3 guinea pigs. Its fantastic and great quality! Got absolutely super service throughout as well.
We bought a cage last Christmas for our sons’ piggies And we’re thrilled with it! We were a bit worried what it would look like in the sitting room but they are lovely looking cages. As the pigs grew we felt they would like more space so we asked Kate if we could have ‘penthouse’. Communication about our order was great & Alistair & Jonny are very happy with the extension to their home .... once they’d got over the trepidation of using the ‘stairs’.
I shopped around for a while looking for a suitable guinea pig cage that would look nice and the choices were limited so I was so glad when I stumbled across this. I think the price is really reasonable when you compare it to other cages and it fits in nicely with my furniture. I got the solid back as it is up against a wall so it was nice to have the option and I think the idea you have come up with for cleaning the cage is fab, so many cage designs I looked at had reviews saying it was hard to clean or bedding was everywhere because the tray was too shallow, definitely not the case with this. Also great communication from Kate, she got back to me straight away and the cage was delivered when she said it would be in time for my Daughters Birthday 🙂
I ordered the guinea pig home and opted for the front opening mesh panel. It's absolutely gorgeous and I can't fault the workmanship or quality, it's beautiful. Kate was helpful and patient right from the beginning even though I bombarded her with questions, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much for all your help and an 'A Class' service, I would have no hesitation in ordering from you again.
I orderd this cage for my hamster as in his boring and very small plastic cage he was super unhappy and always tried to get out! This cage was very easy to put together, and once assembled looks lovely. Also this cage is very easy to clean out which is such a bonus as it was a nightmare before! My hamster is truely in hamster heaven. I've been able to see him exhibit natural behaviour like borrowing and digging which he never did before. He's so much happier and will interact with me, he also sleeps a lot better as now he's very tired after running around in his spacious cage all night long! I would definitely recommend this hamster home it's the best indoor cage I've ever had.
We're very happy with the new cage - it is well-built and easy to put together. I'm really pleased with the attractive design, much nicer than most other indoor cages. My daughter is finding it easy to clean out. Hamster homes have been a pleasure to deal with, kept us updated on a slight delay and upgraded us to 24 hour delivery as a result. Very pleased with both the product and the company.
This is a really well made house and more than big enough for our two guinea pigs. Kate was extremely helpful in rushing the order through to ensure it arrived in time for my daughters birthday, I also bought some other products and everything was lovely quality. Excellent service from Hamster Homes,
This is a fantastic new home for our 3 guinea pigs. They are very happy with it and it is a lot easier to clean out than our old cage with very little spillage of sawdust / hay. Looks lovely and enables us to watch the pigs (and them us). Really well made and easy to assemble. I also spent a long time researching cages and think this is the best indoor hutch available. Highly recommend.
My two Guinea pigs love this house. It's easy to assemble & clean. The top is removable for easy access to your pigs. Plenty of shape inside for them and the ladder can be used either side, which I wasn't sure if they would used but within 5 minutes there was up & down exploring. Defiantly recommend.
My two Guinea pigs love this cage they haven't stopped running about and happy squeaking since putting them in it. It's beautifully made, easy to assemble & clean out. I opted for the mesh sides & lid which allows my children to watch the Guinea pigs without disturbing them. I spent along time researching cages suitable and I am so happy I found hamster homes could not recommend highly enough.
I ordered this house for my Guinea pigs, slightly larger at 150x60cm and it looks absolutely fab!! Really really well made, looks amazing in the house and really easy to put together. My Guinea pigs also love it. Kate was really efficient at responding to emails and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend the Guinea pig houses and hay rack too. It all looks lovely together and my Guinea pigs adore it all. Worth every penny!
This ladder goes perfectly if you decide to have a second layer in your cage which is very handy to have to put food and treats on. It also means that the substrate used in the cage stays cleaner and tidier for longer. The ladder is very well made and a good width for small animals.
I had this stand customised by Kate for a reasonable price so that it was double as tall with a shelf underneath to neatly place my gerbil cage on. If you are buying the cage, I would recommend getting this stand as well as it looks brilliant once altogether! Definitely worth it
Delighted with our new cage! Kate was really helpful and efficient with our order. The instructions for assembly couldn't have been easier and the cage is beautifully made. The two mesh panels make it feel light and airy and we can see our piggies inside very easily. We went for the optional roof and a front opening panel, which operates nicely. Thank you so much!
