Cool hamster cages
These hamster cool cages are pretty jaw dropping visually, especially when you think back to the days when all the hamster of the household got was a square box with some bedding and water! Wowza! Times sure have changed!
Even if your palm sized furball doesn’t fully appreciate the present day poshness of these cool hamster cages, you surely will as you watch him enjoying the heck out all the fun toys and exploring his personal living quarters!
YML Hamster Cage
YML Clear Plastic Hamster Cage. At 1.5 square feet, this hamster cage just isn’t quite big enough for the largest Syrian hamsters, but it will feel quite roomy to the teensy Chinese or dwarf hamsters, and the 3/8-inch bars are still close enough together for safety.
The top is wire and the base is plastic – you can choose from a blue or pink base color. It also comes equipped with a water bottle, food dish, resting platform, exercise wheel and ball and fun tubes.
Kaytee Critter Trail Triple Play
Kaytee Critter Trail Triple Play 3 in One Habitat for Hamsters. This cage is undoubtedly one of the coolest of the cool cages for hamsters.
The exercise tubes literally skyrocket up to a whopping 19 inches above the base, culminating in a fab lookout tower your hamster will love. At just under 1.5 square feet of floor space, this is a good cage choice for smaller hamster breeds. It also comes with an exercise wheel, water bottle and food dish.
MCage 4 Level Hamster Cage
MCage 4 Level Hamster Cage with Large Top Exercise Ball. At just over 1.2 square feet of floor space, this cage is a good choice for small hamster breeds.
It towers to over two feet in height, making it one of the tallest hamster cage options in its class! The cage itself is pure white with wire bars and a plastic base.
You can choose between a cage with green or navy blue tube accents. The cage comes with no less than three exercise wheels, a nine-piece tube system and a roomy cage-top clear 360-degree view exercise ball as well as a food dish and water bottle.
Cool dwarf hamster cages
This short list of extra cool dwarf hamster cages showcases just how much fun you can have as a pet hamster today!
Even better, two of the three cages listed below are also compatible with an entire series of attachments, meaning you can customize your fur baby’s habitat to your heart’s content!
Kaytee CritterTrail 2-Level Habitat
Kaytee CritterTrail 2-Level Habitat. This groovy bi-level habitat features ¼-inch cage bar spacing, which is small enough to ensure even the tiniest hamster stays put safely!
This cage has so many features it’s hard to know where to start – there is an interior wheel and an exterior wheel, a petting zone, a lookout tower and a series of fun tunnels to explore. Best of all, this cage is compatible with other CritterTrail accessories such as this great tunnel series!
Habitrail Cristal Hamster Habitat
Habitrail Cristal Hamster Habitat. This striking white and orange cage offers just over one square foot of floor space, making it suitable for a small hamster breed like a dwarf or Chinese hamster so long as you add on extras to offer more in-cage enrichment.
Ferplast White and Pink Hamster Cage
Ferplast White and Pink Hamster Cage. This ultra-feminine hamster cage comes with a pink bottom and white cage bars. At just over one square foot with narrow bars, it will work well for smaller hamster breeds (in fact, happy owners claim this cage is “escape proof!”)
The cage itself is packed with colorful yellow and pink play tubes, and it also comes with a suite of accessories including a food bowl, water bottle and nesting/resting area.
Cool Syrian hamster cages
Sitting side by side with other hamster breeds, Syrian hamsters might well be considered giants! At a whopping six inches long at maturity, the Syrian hamster quite literally dwarfs the dwarf hamster and other petite breeds, which typically stop growing at four inches tops.
For more detailed information about hamster breed size and other similarities and differences between breeds, we invite you to view this informative post.
This also means that a Syrian hamster will need a roomier cage than his tinier cousins. A cage that offers two square feet of FLOOR space is a great place to start. One example of the minimum proper cage dimensions for a Syrian hamster would be 24 inches long by 12 inches wide by 12 inches high. Bar spacing should be ½-inch or narrower for safety.
These super cool hamster cages will fit the bill for a Syrian hamster’s increased space needs while providing truly unique enrichment and activity opportunities.
Prevue Pet Products Hamster Haven
Prevue Pet Products Hamster Haven. This flexible and fun hamster habitat comes in three sizes (small, medium, large). The first two sizes will work well for smaller hamster species, but the third size offers a full two square feet of floor space, making it a good choice for the larger Syrian hamster.
The cage comes with an interior exercise wheel, a ramp, a feeding or resting platform and a hiding place.
Flyline House Design Hamster Cage House
Flyline House Design Hamster Cage House. Offering just over two square feet of floor space, this twin turrets wire hamster cage house truly does resemble a stately and grand multi-story mansion.
The interior is equipped with a series of mezzanine levels, platforms, ladder system, exercise wheel, food bowl, water bottle and more. With three full levels to explore, your Syrian hamster will never get bored.
Ferplast HAMSTERVILLE Cage
Ferplast HAMSTERVILLE Hamster Habitat Cage. With its combination of natural sustainable wood and black wire, and offering more than two square feet of floor space, this is an ideal cage choice for a Syrian hamster housed alone. Plus, who can resist a cage named “Hamsterville?”
The cage itself is safely treated for liquid resistance and features an easy-clean pull out tray. Natural wood accessories include an exercise wheel and hiding house. It also comes with a food bowl and water bottle.
Cool pink hamster cages
What is cuter than a hamster lady ensconced in her very own pink hamster cage? Two hamster ladies in their pink hamster cage, of course!
These lovely and feminine cool pink hamster cages have everything your little lady needs to feel comfy, cozy and completely pampered in her new home!
Crittertrail Pink One Level Habitat
Super Pet Crittertrail Pink One Level Habitat. This amped-up version of Kaytee’s regular CritterTrail habitat is all PINK – perfect for the lady hamster in your life! It is suitable in size for smaller hamsters and has the same ¼-inch safety bar spacing.
There is a petting zone that is removable and an exercise wheel, food dish and water bottle included. If you really want to go all-out with the pink theme, you could pair this cage with this pink/purple Kaytee bedding called “sweet dreams” – it’s a perfect match!
Prevue Three Story Hamster Cage
Prevue Hendryx Pet Products Three Story Hamster Cage. If you are searching for a veritable pink palace for your furry darling, look no further than this towering three-story pink hamster cage!
This cage comes with a small exercise wheel, a hiding hutch and inbuilt wire stairs. It is not spacious enough (in terms of floor space) for a Syrian hamster but owners say it works well for smaller hamsters.
Habitrail OVO Home
Habitrail OVO Home, Pink Edition. This completely transparent hamster home has the world’s coolest roof – it is fully retractable just like a concert arena or sports stadium! The home includes a series of connected tubes and tunnels and an exterior exercise wheel that maximizes available space.
It also comes in blue if you have a little boy hamster. The top and bottom lock together to keep pint-sized escape artists IN. This is not a good cage choice for a Syrian hamster, but would work well for the smallest hamster breeds.
Funky hamster cages
One of the neatest aspects of these funky hamster cages is how they pave new ground to explore how to best meet a pet hamster’s enrichment needs.
From skyscraper tube trails to lookout pods to all-natural woodsy charm, one of these unique casas might just be your hamster’s perfect new home!
Habitrail Twist Hamster Cage
Habitrail Twist Hamster Cage. If ever a hamster cage earned the descriptor “funky,” this cage is it. With a clear solid plastic base and locked wire bar top, this cage offers 360-degree views with plenty of ventilation and interaction between you and your teensy furball.
Floor space is just over one square foot, making it a good choice for the smaller hamster breeds. This cage comes with an interior exercise wheel, an exterior lookout and water bottle. It pairs with all other Habitrail accessories so you can expand as desired.
Niteangel Large Wooden Hamster Cage
Niteangel Large Wooden Hamster Cage. There is no doubt this cage will leave a lasting impression – with dimensions of 45.5 x 23.5 x 23 inches, this cage was truly built with hamster comfort in mind, whether one Syrian or several dwarf hamsters live within its walls.
The wood is all-natural un-treated China fir throughout with a fine metal mesh for the roof and exterior walls. This cage is a work of art – truly one-of-a-kind.
Awesome hamster cages

From eye-catching design to unexpected extras, these awesome hamster cages are sure to delight your bundle of fur AND you!
Prevue Hendryx Deluxe Hamster Cage
Prevue Hendryx Deluxe Hamster Cage. This cage comes in two base colors: a rich Bordeaux red or a bright and cheery spring lime green. At about 1.8 square feet of floor space, it is barely suitable for a Syrian hamster but would be perfect for a pair of smaller hamsters (as the twin ladders and matching hamster hides suggest).
The exercise wheel is neatly hidden beneath one of the platforms. The wire spacing is a tiny 5/16-inch – perfect for keeping small escape artists IN!
CheerWe Transparent 3 Floors
CheerWe Transparent 3 Floors Hamster Glass Cage-Playground. As we continue our search for really cool hamster cages, this is one that feels more like a cutting-edge architectural model than a working hamster home!
It is just that beautiful, with its completely clear acrylic walls, floors and ceilings and selection of colorful and quirky accessories (you can opt to buy just the cage itself or purchase the cage plus the accessories).
The dimensions layout is a bit odd, we admit – there is less than one square foot of base floor space, but there are three levels inside the home, which adds up to more than 2.4 square feet of floor space total. But somehow, it all seems to work, and combines to give your pet hamster a living space unlike any other.
