I am doing research on hillstream loach and read that they are good climber. Is there any chance that they will climb into HOBs. I once had yo-yo loach, and they kept disappearing into my HOBs.

Is there a chance? yes. But you can minimize this by dropping the water level such that the bottom of the filter lip (where the water comes out) doesn't touch the water's edge.

I can’t drop the water level below the spillway as it will make noise I try to avoid. I want to hear personal experience if It could happen to decide buying. Another creature that likes to climb up the spillway is nerite snail, but only takes a break and returns on its own.
