A technician should take a careful look and locate your leak. Then the service adviser will be able estimate parts and labor necessary to fix your leak. If one hose is already bad, there could be additional hoses going bad that may also be due for replacement.
Though you probably already had it fixed, Just take a piece of cardboard and place it under your car, Fill power steering fluid, Start the car and turn the wheel to the left and right. turn off car. pull the cardboard out to get an idea where to look. Have someone start the car and turn te wheel and look in the general area. if it is alot of fluid loss it is probably the high pressure hose. It is relatively easy to fix if you can turn a wrench...... if in doubt google it out
