You can get boxes of all sizes so there are some which are ideal for dwarfies and others which are great for Syrians. That's the beauty of a bin cage - you can adapt them to your own species and hamster's temperament.

I love your tutorial! The bin cages you made look very nice. Maybe I'll make one for my hammy soon.

Hi, I'm looking into making a couple Bin cages, and I've got my eye on some 62L boxes (80cmx40cmx25cm) would this be high enough to keep a Dwarf hammie in?

Thanks

Is it okay if I just left the bin cage without top? Is it really possible that the hamster would climb out?

Members have had problems keeping hamsters in without a top,so I'd say always have a lid.It provides just as much ventilation to just mesh the top,but it is way safer to have a top than not to have one.

I'd agree that it is always safer to have a lid. Hamsters can find ways of climbing on things and hopping out quite often! Ours can scale the water bottle or knock over a wheel and climb on that and shimmy out!

Great guide! I find that Really Useful Boxes can be quite expensive so if you're looking for a cheaper option, the Samla box from Ikea is only 10 and is an amazing size.
