I had the same issue... but I managed to login to the instance. Firstly, generated a keypair and then initiating an instance by this command: nova boot --image IMAGE_NAME --flavor FLAVOR_NAME --key_name KEYPAIR INSTANCE_NAME. (e.g nova boot --image Ubuntu 13.10 --flavor m1.small --key_name id_rsa myFirstInstance). After that you should find out the ip address of that instance, then ssh to it. (ssh unbuntu@x.x.x.x, or root@x.x.x.x). Then you should be prompted for the passphrase you entered for the keypair.
