When it comes to design, the Ferplast Favola cage wins major points.

While it comes along with an upper level, it’s still simple and easy to take apart, with just enough accessories to entertain your hammie. It includes a water bottle, food tray, hideout, wheel, and even a “connection cap” so you can add on tunnels (although you’ll need to buy those separately).

The upper level may look like wire mesh in the photos, but it’s actually solid so that little hamster paws don’t get caught, and we were impressed by how sturdy it was.

We also love the fact that the base is essentially just a really deep plastic tub. And not just because it makes cleaning easy. It’s the perfect depth to let your hamster have fun burrowing and tunneling, and it’s transparent so that you can have fun watching him go.

Here’s the thing, though.

This really isn’t the greatest choice for a Syrian hamster. It’s just too small. One customer said she uses it for her senior Syrian who’s less active, and we feel confident saying it’s a good choice in that case.

But it doesn’t really make the cut for a young and healthy Syrian hammie.

And even if you did get this cage for a Syrian hamster, you’d need to replace that built-in wheel. The wheel size that a Syrian needs — at least 8 inches in diameter — will take up more space in the cage, so it’s not the best set up you could go for.

But for dwarf hamsters?

We’d say it’s a solid choice.
