You can definitely see all the traffic generated by a guest if the guest 
network card is in bridge mode by capturing on the host network card that 
provides the bridging between the host and the guest.

I don't know if you can see the traffic generated by the host on the guest. 
I would just try and see what happens.

Have a nice day
