He will look after the creatures for a charge of £1 per night, and said he already had his first booking, for four guinea pigs.

Alex explained how he came up with the idea: "I like making houses for my hamster, because I get loads of cages and expand them, like upgrade, and then I thought it looked like a hotel, and then I kind of thought of a hamster hotel, and then I got on the computer and made a little poster.
