There are many, and you can find them on the reactivity series.


For example, all alkali metals, sodium, potassium, lithium, francium, etc. are more reactive than hydrogen. Many transition metals such as iron, chromium, nickel, tin, zinc, and lead are more reactive than hydrogen. However, metals like gold, copper, and platinum are less reactive than hydrogen.

Anything below lead will NOT react with hydrogen.
