Wheels are an absolute essential for hamsters, in the wild they run for miles so without one in their enclosure they'll become very sad. I prefer wooden wheels as they're quieter and my hamsters live in my bedroom but there are plastic wheels available that are designed to be silent. Stand-alone wheels are much better than cage-attached wheels in this regard I've noticed. It's also important to ensure your hamsters back in flat when they are on their wheel so they don't develop a back injury.
My hamsters absolutely love their wheel, I see them running on it all night long. It's definitely their favourite toy out of everything they have.
