Answer:

Hydra´s digestion is both intracellular and extracellular.

Explanation:

Firstly, digestion in hydras starts inside the gastrovascular cavity (coelenteron) when the food is engulfed (e.g.:water flea).

In order to complete the food breakdown, dissolved or partially digested food particles are then completely digested inside each cells' food vacuoles by enzymes; having passed through the gastrodermis.
