That small hose, that one connects to the top of the radiator on the drivers side. it is right next to the big hose that is on top.

If you are talking about the cooling system expansion tank, it has two hose connections: the one facing to the front connects to the radiator top side and the back one is the pressure bleeder hose. If the front one broke off you will need a new expansion tank. The one on the back shouldn't be leaking coolant at all times. If you do your radiator cap is bad so replace it.
