Firstly you look for a brand that gets decent reviews, or at least a style of pipe.

Then on the specific pipe you are looking for sturdy construction materials; high grade stainless, brass, copper, etc.

1 hose hookahs tend to function better.

Can't really tell from a picture but you want a hookah that has a large gage for the best airflow (this is what reviews are for).

Also can't tell from the picture, but you want a functional purge system.

Also, most people prefer traditional heart styling (separate tubes for purge and hose port) over plated common chambers and unplated (open) common chambers.

Brass parts. This generally means it's a well put together pipe.
