Question Mini Hookahs

Hi all, as im new to hookahs. I was planing on buying a Mini Hookah first of all, preferably a 2 hose if possible. (Any suggestions??) Just wondering whether anyone has tried out or owns a mini hookah and what do you think of them?

Also are there any you would recommend?

The 2 hosed Mya QT works well for a little guy. If there is a 2 hosed Mya Bambino, though, that's what you should get.

Wow thanks, I was just looking at the QT two hose, my mate has loads of hookahs and used to have one of those as well as the Bambino.

I see you recommend the Bambino is there a reason for this?

Thanks for the suggestions so far

This page seems to list a lot of Mini's and recommendations would be great, 2 hose preferably but if you believe a 1 hose is better quality I am open to all information and suggestions!

Not sure whether other minis have this option, but the Diva, comes with a hose adapter so you can swap between 1 & 2 pipes easily...

I like the idea of this, because I wont smoke with a mate ALL the time!

EDIT: A similar add on - The Mya Solo 2 Hose has a ball bearing function that plugs all hoses not in use, any one tried something like this? Does it work effectively?

yeah I'd rather get a MYA qt bc imo, They are the best small hookahs that you can find.

MYA's other models are pretty good as well...But the qt is a bit better

Yeah a small hookah is good to start with, but I wouldn't buy a 2 hosed, honestly I don't like them for me is a mess if I'm hookhing (look at my new verb) alone. So why don't you try old fashioned MYA. Also start buyin tobacco brands such as nakhla and al fakher (specially nakhla), those are good brands and they are cheap so If you mess a little bit your first charges or sessions, you won't be wasting an expensive tobacco. This will help you a lot gaining experience in the hookah preparation ritual. Godd luck with that mini!

I have one of these as well, 10 inch. When I'm smoking my hookah alone I'll bust this hookah out still from time to time when i have stuff to do around the house. Easy to move around with you.

I have a Genie. It is only available in one-hose. It is FINE for a one-man smoke! The base is very wide, and it is stable (some small hookahs tip over easily).

I think the Qt comes in a cardboard box thingy, or cage. The rest of the Mya's come in the normal box. I choose bambino, looks sexy, smokes well.

From my experience, I'd only go with a two-hose for hookahs 20" and up. But even then; I have a 35" and a 40" hookah for example..both are one-hose hookahs. I just think one-hose hookahs smoke better...but that's just my personal opinion/experience with both one-hose and multiple-hose hookahs.

As for the smaller hookahs; such as the MYA QT and Bambino for example...I'd definitely go with the one-hose version. Basically with me...I opt for one-hose hookahs regardless of the size of the hookah; and I think you should too.

For those that say the smaller hookahs are good 'starter' hookahs; it's kind of misleading to call them 'starters'. Most experienced smokers I know (including myself); or that at least consider themselves 'experienced' (yes i realize its subjective)...smoke from the 'starter' hookahs as well; because they are easier to manage and they actually produce some quality smoking sessions for their small size.

I just got my first 'starter' hookah (before this one I only smoked from/owned larger hookahs). So I asked around the forum for how best to use this little fella; btw...thanks for the input everyone. Anyway...I'll sit my little MYA QT on my desk as I work on my laptop and puff away at the same time. SO FAR, SO GOOD...great little booger.

Cheers everyone, for your opinions, I have also decided now that I will start with two Hookahs, because I think a 12-14 inch is a bit small. I will still buy a QT or Bambino but im also looking to buy a 18-20 inch from the UK. What amount of coal would you suggest using on a hookah of that size with a full regular bowl, I will be using quick light coals (Circular). And plan to have a session of around an Hour tops! Thanks
