You can use HDFS ACLS:

And if you are using Hive, you can use storage based authorization as hive.security.authorization.manager in hive-site.xml, which uses HDFS ACL as permission to hive tables/databases.

In simple solution you can try this as well.

hadoop fs -chmode -R 755 /apps/hive/warehouse/

Here DB owner is going to get read,write and execute, Group & others are going to get read and execute only.

you can explore Ranger and ACL functionality as well for implementing different level of access for users.
