This will be fixed in a hotfix tomorrow.

  • Fixed Private Match joining bug. Temporary workaround for 7.06: If you are experiencing issues joining a friends match or friend joining yours, toggle the Show/Hide Match button in the pause menu

Sorry for answering my own question so quickly, but a lot of people are having this issue right now.

To solve, have the host hit escape and click Show match in the upper-right.

I don't know why they would make the default setting "open to the public but closed to friend's list"...
