in such a configuration i prefer to use two virtual machines.

one vm has host-only networking to serve hidden service content.

second vm hosts Tor router with hidden service pointed at vm host.

host uses iptables redirect and/or tcp proxy to connect hidden service
connections from Tor VM to hidden service VM port at host-only

(there are variations on this theme...)
