Hi
There are many rule-of-thumb methods for determining the correct number of neurons to use in the hidden layers, here are just a few of them (the number of input/output units is usually known as you are aware of the them):
1) The number of hidden neurons should be between the size of the input layer and the size of the output layer.
2) The number of hidden neurons should be 2/3 the size of the input layer plus the size of the output layer.
3) The number of hidden neurons should be less than twice the size of the input layer.
