Quick simple method, remove the top hinge pin and give it a whack, bending it slightly. The friction from the bent pin will slow hinge movement. If one does not do the job, try two. Other option is to re-plumb the door.

If slightly bending the pins doesn't work, try using pliers to squeeze closed the hinge barrels, slightly, while the pin is removed. Both will create a friction to stop the self-closing.
