Well it can depend on what kind of odor it is. Is it their waste?? Do they use a specific place in the cage? If it is both then you just need to clean out that corner every other day and it shouldn't smell. From what I know, a hamster is very clean and if his/her cage is kept clean then there should be no odors.

Maybe try vinegar? It is safe and can neutralize odors. I used it to get out the bait smell from my fridge! :)
