So i have a 80cm coco cage and im wondering if this will be ok for a hamster?

It is 79cm X 42cm X 55cm. The recommended minimum is 80cm X 50cm X 50cm. So, it is slightly under that but probably fine

If it's the same one I just found googling it it looks as though the bar spacing might be a bit big (up to 1.4cm) maybe ok for a fully grown syrian but nothing else, it looks to be quite tall too so you would need to be careful setting it up to avoid the possibility of falls.

Just to note that the forum doesn't have a recommended minimum. Lots of countries have different sizes they suggest & even in the UK different welfare organisations have differing sizes or none at all that they recommend. (The National Hamster Council has a minimum size but this refers to the absolute minimum that any hamster in any circumstance should be living in, it's not a recommended size but this is the only guideline the forum follows https://hamsters-uk.org/ ) Every hamster is an individual and has different needs and that's what should be taken in to consideration - there is no one size fits all

I'm not familiar with this particular cage but as cypher had noted, if the bar sizing is bigger then that is something to consider.
