I have created a user on my ubuntu server and want to restrict that user to be able to view what's in his home folder only (basically so he can access the files I want him to via SFTP but nothing else).

I think you need this: http://chrootssh.sourceforge.net/index.php

I know you can easily confine access to the user's home dir with ftp but I dont think sshd 
does this out of the box.
