Navigate to:

Amazon Web Services > Account > Account Activity

Expand the entry under Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud

That will show the full breakdown of the hours used and the cost to you. Simply divide to find your hourly cost.

If you want to be more granular, you can download your Usage Report:

Amazon Web Services > Account > Usage Reports


Set report granularity to Hours and click 'Download Report'. However, this report does not include the costs.
