no they do not
Q: Do hedgehogs smell as much as guinea pigs and hamsters?

A: No they don't. Hedgehogs are clean animals and don't give off a strong smell. If you clean their cage twice a week, there should be no problems with odor. They do however, poop in there running wheel so be prepared to be cleaning poop up every other day.

The hedgehogs do not stink as compared to hamsters and guinea pigs. It is good to ensure that you clean their cage at least twice a week, which helps prevent any odors. Get facts about hedgehogs from http://happyhedgies.webs.com/hedgehogfacts.htm.

Hedgehogs smell if you don't take care of their cages regularly. As long as you do that, you shouldn't have an issue

No. They only smell if their cage is spoiled.
( A.K.A. has a lot of poop & pee in it )
