We can't be sure where hell is, but it is a real place.

Hell is often thought of as being down below us. This is mostly because the Bible makes it sound like it is under us, while talking about heaven being above us. It could be that hell is somewhere deep in the earth (though this seems unlikely), or hell could even be in outer space.

God doesn't exist in the same way that we do, because He's able to see and know the past, present, and the future all of the time. We call that living outside of time and space. It's likely that both heaven and hell are that way too. That would mean people can't reach them until we die and enter that other "dimension" of time and existence.
