Masculine....
there exist specifically female form гостья.

But as it happens with word describing occupation, гость is applied universaly to males and femanles.

If you need other masculine nouns with 'soft' ending -
Вождь, дождь, конь...

Though majority are feminine.
Case forms:

гость
гостя
гостю
гостя
гостем
госте

гости
гостей
гостям
гостей
гостями
гостях.
