Check out this tutorial for info on how to limit the user to a specific amount of disk space:

How To Enable User and Group Quotas

Then if you want to limit the user to only accessing their home directory over SFTP, you can edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config to include:

Match User username
    ChrootDirectory %h
    AllowTCPForwarding no
    X11Forwarding no
    ForceCommand internal-sftp
