If a hymen is is present it's always at the entrance of the vagina.
The localization is always the same, it's form can be very different . Some drawings: link

Update: Thanks for the answers, but where exactly is the hymen? I know that some/all girls are able to use tampons without breaking the hymen.
The hymen is a rim of fine mucous skin at the entrance of the vagina and it has an aperture in it, so menstruation blood can evacuate.
With some girls that aperture can be large enough for a penis.
nearly all girls can use tampons.
Breaking the hymen using a tampon or having an accident is NOT losing virginity.
Looking at Google...it says right at the vaginal opening, so of course you must push through the inner lips, so I just have to recall how far I was in her before I reached "dead end" link
I am trying to remember, and as I recall, it was probably less than half the length of my penis insitde the vagina opening...I remember that because at the time I thought that we could have "intercours" without breaking the hymen.
