You've got to build trust with him or else he won't ever get better. Usually having them for a few months and slowly gaining their trust will completely transform their personalities. Try this trick, wear a t shirt for at least a day and put it in his cage so he can get use to your smell. Also try to handle him EVERYDAY no matter how uncooperative he is, and don't put him back even if he hisses or kinda misbehaves. As for him trying to hide, I think that's pretty normal hedgehog behavior. Maybe next time you take him out try diming the lights a little bit so he's more comfortable in his surroundings. Also if you're afraid of handling him, try picking him up with something t shirt, piece of fleece, etc.
