The former Celtic frontman struck to lift the Hillsborough club to fifth in the Championship.
Hooper collected David Jones’ deflected volley to guide a shot past Alex Smithies just before half-time.
Boss Carlos Carvalhal said: “My players have been unbelievable this week against very difficult teams.
“I’m very happy about what they did – it was a special day.
“The Championship is unique. The number of games, the crowds and the intensity. This is a situation we need to be able to play in.
“So far all the teams have lost games and this can happen. There is not a big value difference between any of the teams.
“We are resilient and reacting well all of the time. We are in a good way in the league.”
The defeat ended QPR’s five-match unbeaten run and dropped them to 13th.
Manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink said: “I think we deserved at least a point, but that’s football.
“When anyone comes to Hillsborough they know they will be under pressure. They are a very good side.”
