.Hydrgen is a unique element with one electron present in outer orbital, and so it can loose an electron when it combines with nonmetals and gains electron when it combines with metals. So hydrogen can act as nonmetal as well as metal. Being a single electron system it majorly loose an electron and resemble nonmetals more. Hydrogen has a lone electron like the group one so it is placed with them.
