Put them to other group where you are (users by default on many distributions), eg. create group 'restricted'. And remove r and x access to other users home directories.

If you want to be paranoid about it, you can alternatively run ssh daemon for them in a chroot jail (or change their login shell to chrooting alternative containg just the one directory for them and sftp with libraries needed by it.)
