Is there a way to set up a repository and use multiple users over svn+ssh with shared hosting? If anyone has any URLs or instructions to do this it would be much appreciated. I'm thinking that if this can't be done with shared hosting, I should just have my SVN repository somewhere else.

Yes it can. Here is our official documentation,

It covers all your questions.

My above answer is lacking a little bit. You will have to create SSH users and give them proper permissions to the directory subversion is in,

http://docs.webfaction.com/software/general.html#setting-file-permissions
http://docs.webfaction.com/user-guide/moving.html#create-users

Once you do that you can connect to the server with svn, over ssh like this,

$ svn co svn+ssh://user@domain.com/home/user/webapps/svn .
