If you’re looking to purchase your first hookah, follow this simple guide to find what type of hookah is best for you.

Here are some frequently asked questions when purchasing a hookah:

What Size Hookah?

The size of the hookah you buy depends largely on your budget and how you plan to use it. Smaller hookahs, such as the Mya QT, are best for personal use and work best sitting on a table. Medium sized hookahs, such as the Khalil Mamoon 1001 Nights, are best for single or multiple smokers and in our opinion are the best size hookah for all around use. Larger hookahs, such as the Mya Colossus, are recommended for parties and large groups, they are typically the most expensive, but smoke better than some the smaller sized hookahs.

How Many Hoses?

We always recommend buying a hookah with only one hose to obtain the best smoke quality. Smoking out of two or or more hose hookahs decreases the quality of smoke and the pull is harder, even with multiple hoses only one person can smoke at a time. If you do wish to purchase a hookah with more than one hose, we suggest limiting it to two hoses, or consider a rotating hookah.

How Much Should I Spend?

When it comes to hookahs, the age old saying “you get what you pay for” is very true. You will find a lot of cheap hookahs online, but generally they are mass produced chinese knock-offs that won’t last more than a few smoking sessions and will generally provide poor smoking quality. High quality hookahs, such as Khalil Mamoons, are hand made in Egypt and will last for years, but are typically the most expensive. In our opinion the best affordable hookah is always going to be the Mya QT hookah due to it’s high quality parts and smoke quality it provides at a low price.
