Well EclipseLink is free. Then there is (I believe) a Spring ORM thats free. Apache Cayenne also provides am ORM mapper. Thats only to mention a few.
Hibernate however is one of the most popular, technically matured and fully developed ORM Frameworks around. I would only switch if I really had to some some very good reason
