Try different hashes until you find one that works...
Only way really.

Look at the code that hashed them in the first place.

Each hash may have a different length. MD5 is 32 for example. Just dump one in Google, see what it says. BTW hashing is a one way algorithm, so you can't just make the passwords readable again.
