Having trouble trying to search for this in the data sheet, just have seen how big it is and how it handles stack pointers. Would anyone mind helping me out where the "Stack" start on an Intel 8080?

After Reset content of the stackpointer is undefined.
Keep in mind, these are early 8 bit machines. There is no huge hardware and microcode that puts every part into a well defined state. For the 8080 the only thing guaranteed is that the PC will be reset to zero and execution starts from there (*1). Everything else has to be initialized by software (Boot code).
*1 - Reset is effectively just a clear input for the PC.
