Stairs and insulation question

Our staircase is opened to the foyer and the upstairs hall. The staircase shares a wall with our main bathroom and closet. We are still under construction, and the hardwood treads have yet to be installed. I was wondering if we stuffed some insulation in the stairs if it would help lessen the noise when someone is walking up and down? Mainly lessening the noise that comes into our bathroom (my husband was walking up the stairs while I was in the bathroom yesterday and I could hear him plain as day!)

We did put some Rockwool in the walls before sheetrock. Has anyone stuffed their stairs before finishing? They echo. We are not interested in putting a runner down at this point. I know that would help.
