If you have a wheel and the wheel is too loud, take a little bit of Pam cooking spray and grease the parts of the wheel that connect to the stand...this works amazing

Get used to it! They're nocturnal. Nothing I did could make her diurnal or even carpustular. I finally resorted to putting her in the spare bedroom at night. Good luck!

Our hamster is loud at night too. We have him in the spare bedroom and close the door. If both doors are closed then we don't hear him.

They are nocturnal like another user said. There are wheels that are probably less noisy. I cant think of a brand name to tell you at the moment, its been a while since i had a hamster. Anyways. Probably keep them in a different room

Hamsters are nocturnal - of course he's going to be awake at night. Put him in another room and close the door.

We have 3 guinea pigs and 3 pet rats and had the same issue initially. My sons have the animals in their rooms, and both were kept up by these little nocturnals for the first few nights. I think a combination of becoming acclimated to their noise, and the animals getting settled into their new home made it a non issue in less than a week. Sometimes, we need to take the water bottle off the cage during the night, because the drinking is pretty loud, and we keep the rat's wheel well oiled so it doesn't squeak, but keeping us awake is no longer a problem. If it doesn't stop, you may need to move them out of your room.
