Thanks for the advice, kyrilliondaemon. So many people say so many different things but I agree with you, it also depends on the individual hamster. Thanks for all of the answers.

I really wouldn't worry too much if you can't meet the standards some follow, almost all standards are opinion based and if you find a cage that works for you then thats great and chances are your hamster will be fine in there

I've also found that bar/silicone chewing isn't always a sign the cage is too small, my hamster Nelly chewed when his cage was too large, Pumpkin chews because she hopes it'll create an escape route (she's an expert escape artist) and is better behaved in her current cage than she ever was in a bigger one, Dolly chewed because she could... Bar chewing can be a sign the hamster would prefer a different environment, but it certainly isn't always the case and definitely doesn't always mean the cage is too small.
Thank you for mentioning this! Some of the recommended sizes in this thread and others just aren't practical if space is an issue. I, personally, don't have space in my home for two detolfs. My hammy is in the Marchioro Kevin wire cage and seems perfectly content.

The Marchioro Kevin is a lovely cage It's the same as the Goran but has narrow bar spacing by the way HamsterCrazy. I don't think many people have room for two detolfs!

I could make room for one detolf if I really wanted to.. I won't go into details though Staying at a temporary place because of family issues, so I don't have a huge bedroom right now.
