Anything by Plugable, which you can buy on Amazon. Been using their USB2 and USB3 hubs for years both in the studio and live with no issues at all.

The best advice I can give you with hubs is to get a powered one if you can. This allows you to basically plug in anything you'd like without ever putting the internal USB ports of your computer themselves at risk. Normally these ports are secured from power drains but an extra failsafe will never hurt.
With kind regards,
