I created a new partition for ubuntu which is around 9 gb. Out of that at least 4 gb is still free but ubuntu displays that only 150mb left. System Monitor shows that 150 mb is left in root (/) directory and around 4gb free in (/host) directory. How do I use that host directory for saving my files? Please help

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.
To use "/host", you'll can use "Nautilus" file manager and go to root file system. Then you'll find there /host folder, which you can use for whatever you want. You can also make a symlink to the folder dragging it with "alt" pressed to the chosen location (Desktop). It is not usually wise to have only 5GB for the Ubuntu file system, therefore I strongly recommend you to enlarge that partition using liveCD and "Gparted".
