It can vary from place to place.  In the US, village tends to be the value
used for small unincorporated towns, with hamlet being not much more than a
named crossroads with maybe one or two residences.  For us, town and city
is a little stickier, since towns and cities are specific kinds of
incorporated places in much of America.
