For my Chinese I tend to use a small-ish cardboard box (such as the one that the Pets at Home Woodland Hamster Cottage comes in) and although mine will happily climb into the box unaided, you could use something like a bendy bridge.

I have one like this - though Inky has now decided to use hers as a bed, rather than for digging as such



To be honest, all you really need is a cardboard box of suitable size with a hole at the top and a hole on the side at the bottom - I use the ladder elsewhere because she's more than capable of getting up and down by herself, and the tray thing that is meant to retain the bedding doesn't.

We had those boxes that InkyPen mentioned with our first Chineseys and they often went to sleep in them too.

Here's a video of Jess (my smallest Chinese) in hers at playtime today:



You could leave the top on the box and cut a hole in it if you wanted but Jessie seemed to prefer it as more of a 'Fitch Pool'.
