Hell does not exist except to those who believe it does for we create our reality, in this life and beyond. Meaning, if one passes from this world and believes they are going to hell then they will experience that until they choose differently. Mind you, many will go to them and try to rescue them in that process, they will not be abandoned. But they will still need to choose — our free will reigns supreme. But not to worry, God is love — only love.
