LISTEN... I got this cage like maybe 3 Christmases ago along with 2 hamsters (rest in peace Lily and the other one whose name I've forgotten) and it was possibly the WORST thing ever in existence. First of all, I tried keeping it in my bedroom, but at night the lil critters would bring the food pellets and stuff into the wheel and then spin around in it making the most annoying sound my ears have had to endure (not sure if this is a universal problem or if my hamsters were just jerks.) So eventually we moved it out of my bedroom and problem solved right? WRONG! This was apparently not the only flaw with the cage, I would soon learn. First of all it was extremely annoying to clean, but that's not the worst thing about it. One morning, me, a naive child, walked in to the living room to check on my adorable creatures in their homes. And....... holy heck the door to the top room thing was open! And one of my hamsters was missing!!! I immediatley cursed myself for leaving the door open, allowing one of my furry friends to escape. Suprisingly we found her later that day by luring her into a trap using cucumbers (still not sure if we actually found her or if my parents just bought me a new, similar looking hamster but I don't have the heart to ask them at this point,) and that was the end of it... or so I thought. A couple days later, again, I waltzed into the living room to observe my fuzzy rodents, and was shocked to find the top door open, and again, the SAME HAMSTER, was missing. We found her again, (or did we??) and upon inspection I realized that the door of the top purple room was FAR too easy to open. I ended up duct taping it shut, but this cage put me through WAY too much trouble. So, unless you want your hamsters to run away or make noise, I suggest buying a different cage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by newportbeachdad Cheap plastic product
Santa brought this to our house for our 7 year old who has begged and begged for a hamster. The product is cheap plastic which can easily crack or break when trying to clean. Probably not a real problem though as you cannot get the pieces apart so there really is no way to clean. The wheel is very loud and you really cannot leave in a bedroom. Hamsters are nocturnal so removing the wheel at night is really not a solution and certainly not fair to the hamster. We will have to invest in a different habitat. My wife is a fanatic about keeping the home clean and there is no way you can do that for long with this cheap plastic unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by critterowner impossible to clean
The hamsters love this habitat, but it's extremely difficult to keep clean. Especially the wheel gets very nasty very fast. After trying to deal with the filth in the wheel and the lookout tower for 5 days, I bought a different habitat instead.

Purchased this cage for our daughter's new hamster this weekend. It is absolutely wonderful! Our daughter and Wesley (the hamster) have spent hours entertaining themselves. Easy assembly. Easy to clean. Yes, very noisy when Wesley takes food into wheel and begins his marathon run at night.
However, we solved that quickly. Taught daughter how to take the wheel off, remove and rotate the wheel craddle, place it back so it blocks the tube opening. Then place the wheel back on in the morning. BAM! Problem solved.
Wonderful product. We love it. Thanks PetSmart!
