Do you want the repository to be public (i.e: that everyone in the world will
be able to read it) or do you want a private repository (which has a
restricted read access)? One can easily set up a public
Subversion repository on Google Code ( http://code.google.com/ ) - one needs
to have a Google account, but your projects gets accepted immediately. Note
that there are some limitations on the licence (to avoid the licence
proliferation problem). There's also http://projectlocker.com/ which gives one
private 200 MB repository for 2 users for free.

Aside from those, there is http://sourceforge.net/ and
http://developer.berlios.de/ , but these may require more red tape.  

Muli mentioned Bitbucket.org, and for completeness sake there's also
http://github.com/ and http://gitorious.org/ , but these are Git-only (though
Mercurial can work against a git remote).
