We picked up Stitch from family yesterday as they are emigrating. His hutch was filthy :( and it absolutely stinks (as does Stitch).
We cleaned it out and sprayed with pet safe disinfectant but it still smells - and it's in our spare bedroom :)>>>

What's the best thing to get rid of the smell? Sprinkle with bicarb or scrub with white vinegar.

If you haven't already done so ~ i'd recommend dismantling the hutch at least partially so that you can get the floors out, then you can give the nooks and crannies a good scrub :)
I've had to do this twice with my hutch as the "lodgers" changed - it was easy for me i must admit as i'd assembled the hutch from new so i knew that the roof was the last thing to go on - so i removed it and got the floors out without having to dismantle the rest~ then gave it all a brush down and a good scrub with Trigene. It's surprising how much stuff can lodge between the floors and walls including insects if the hutch has been outdoors [ i have a bit of a thing about earwigs :)>>> so did it partly to make sure there were none lurking in there LOL ]
