When I had hammies, I just used 10-20 gallon aquariums for them... Super easy to clean! They dont always get the best ventalation though, so you might have to clean it a little more often.
Ive seen some nice basic wire cages too.

I know, the crittercages are definitely a pain taking apart. That's the only kind I have ever used, but I do use glass for my mice and they are about as easy as you can get.

Like jess has, tanks are great.
Also bin cages are easy and cheap.

When I had a hamster I used a Critter Trail and when my bothers hamster died I added a second critter trail connected with tubes. I found it quiet easy to clean.

Tanks and tubs make great cage and are easy to clean.

Glass tanks are heavy but last long. Tubs are light and east to carry to the sink to be washed but they are also eaisly chewed.
