If its hissing from around the brake servo when you switch it off then you have a vacuum leak somewhere. I could be the hose or connections or the diaphragm in the servo. I don't know which garage you took it to but they shouldn't have found it not charged you for bleeding the brakes as thats nothing to do with the hissing. I would avoid this garage if I were you.
