Hi hedgie59

It depends on the individual hedgehogs and the rats. Some of each species will tolerate each other more than others will.

A hog might be reluctant to go into a house where there is a rat already there, but might also be reluctant if there was another hog in there. A rat might keep away from food if there are hogs around but some will try to get to the food despite the hogs.
