Caliper Position Help

Really dumb question that I can't seem to find the answer on. Does the brake hose mount to the top of the caliper or the bottom of the caliper? I had them mounted so the hose would go to the top but it didnt seem like it wanted to fit very well. I swapped sides so the hose goes to the bottom of the caliper and it fits fine now (had brakes off for over a year now). Should the hose be going to the top and I have to swap it back now? Or is it not a problem if they are mounted on the opposite side? Thanks.

The bleeder screws should be higher than the hoses.
