Hidden wifi in network/interfaces

I had a little trouble connecting to hidden wpa2 psk with network/interfaces. First of all since network name is empty, you can’t use wpa_passphrase to has with your real hidden name.
And this a configuration I ended with:

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid NETNAME
wpa-scan-ssid 1
wpa-psk password

As you can see the magic line is wpa-scan-ssid 1 and without it you just will never find you hidden “” empty name Wi-Fi. Also I’m pretty sure you can hash password with empty(“”) ssid name, but I didn’t tried it.
