Is your guest attached to Host Interface in VirtualBox network configuration? VirtualBox network configuration defaults to NAT and when using NAT your guest OS will have an IP from different network (from 10.*.*.* address space), which probly isn't what you're using on your host.
If you attach your guest to host interface and assing an IP belonging to same network as your host, you'll be able to ping your guest.
