This is a fun little hiding hut for guinea pigs. It can fit two adults inside and it really is a neat idea, from a company where their whole range of items that they do, is based on the circus. They have not been around for a long time, but I have been impressed by the quality of this product. It’s always great to see new and exciting products that have been made for guinea pigs and also this was designed in the UK. This hidey hut is just something a little different to what is currently on the market. It is made out of polar fleece and the inner filling is polyester fibre.

My guinea pigs love spending time in the hut, so they must find it very comfortable. It is machine washable, to be washed at a cold wash of 30 degrees and has the standard removable pad inside. The pad is something that is done in some others that are sold. It’s easy to take out and wash separately. Also, what is brilliant is another pad is included, so when one of them is in the wash or drying, you have got another back up one to place in. Just a simple thing like this really is appreciated by owners and even if you try to fit in a separate square fleece, it will be blocking up the entrance.

To soak up more urine, you could place both of the pads inside. Be prepared that they might go underneath the pad, so when you can, place it back again. I love how they have a yellow star on the top, in keeping with the circus theme.

Recap on good and bad points 🙂

Pros 🙂

  • Two removable pads                                                                              Cool guinea pig
  • Value for money when I purchased
  • Machine washable at 30
  • A creative product
  • Well made
  • Very comfortable and safe for guinea pigs
  • Can be squashed down to fit away for storage
  • Good amount of room for your piggies

Cons 🙁



  • Pads could be thicker, so you don’t to have to use two to soak up more urine


The quality of the product, means it will last for quite a long time for your guinea pigs to use. Although you throw it away anyway, there is a nice special touch added with a tag attached to the hut when first purchased. It has information in about washing etc and is displayed as if it is an entry ticket to the circus, which I think is another creative idea. It’s of no surprise to me that this product and the other items in the HayPigs range is included in major pet retailers in the UK.

You will only find this product on the pets at home website as its not sold in the physical UK stores. So if you want your guinea pigs to join the circus, purchase this hut, because its like they are in their own mini circus. It can be used to transport them from their playpen back to their home, which is always useful. A bit of advice if you have more than two piggies, get another hut, as they will all be trying to fit into one together.

  1. This review is so helpful. Been thinking of getting my niece one for her Shellie. I loved how you add value into the product! Definitely worth to try!

  2. Oh my God, they look so cute in their little Circus Hut, and like you said they seem very comfortable in it, they are available in other colors or just that one? I’ll really like a yellow and blue combination. Its so nice that they come with two pads for replacing when you have to wash it. It seems like an excellent product, thanks for this review!

    1. Its just this colour, but yes it would go well in a yellow and blue combination. The extra pad is very handy to have. Thank you Paola. 

  3. I’m coming across this hut for the first time, and just by looking at the pig inside the hut, it’s undoubtedly a comfortable hiding spot for pet guinea pigs.

    I also love the fact that it is easy to maintain. There are really tons of handy stuff online that can add some joy into your life. Thanks for sharing this great product. I enjoyed reading.

    1. The Guinea Pigs love snoozing and hiding in the hut, its just a great product for them. There is always a product for something and there are many that you can get for Guinea Pigs, so they can be spoilt 🙂
