If your by yourself or just a friend and you, all you need is a single.
Multis are only truely needed for parties and even then, theyre a little much

A multi hose hookah is never really necessary. It's only good if you don't have patience and want to be smoking all the time.

The problems arise when there is no auto seal system and people don't plug their hoses. Also there is the matter of fighting for a draw. If one person has much stronger lungs then the second person will not be able to draw at the same time. At that point it's the same as just passing the hose back and forth.

then you get to lots of people drawing with very strong lungs. You can over heat the coals and thus the tobacco resulting in burning if everyone takes big drags at the same time or in rapid sequence. This lessens the life of the coals and of the tobacco.

I suggest a single hose and for the most part it's all I use. I have one three hose and one Mya that can be a one or two hose and rarely use them for these reasons. Also auto seals can get stuck and cause other problems.

My first hookah was a 3 hose. never had any problems with it. But this is one of those things where everyone has their own valid reasons for liking or disliking multi-hoses. It's an argument that will never be won by either side.

Its a matter of preference, i have a four hose hookah that can be changed for one to four hoses depending on how i set it up. If you are going to be smoking by yourself a lot i wouldn't buy one that can't change the number of hoses you connect to it unless they are self sealing ports, i.e you don't want to have to plug up one or more hoses when smoking by yourself.

Puck likes smoking with three friends to their own hose... I've tried it, gets tiring fast :P

I normally use a two hosed egyptian with 5-8 people
Otherwise a one hose is perfect for 4 people.
3 minutes in between passes... for normal people
