Question Insulating interior bathrrom walls

I have a bathroom that all wall are interior. I will be gutting all the walls down to the studs. All wall are 2x4's. My questions is I would like to put insulation on all wall for sound and comfort. The walls will have green board installed over studs. One of the back walls is double studded due to a vent stack so insulation unfaced would not realy hold well on the wall. Is it ok to put kraft faced on that wall and put unfaced on the rest of the walls with poly as the vapor barrier ? If poly is ok on the walls what mill should I use. Any help would be great.

When all the walls are inside you dont need paper back or V/B in them . We have just used duct tape lots of time to hold the insulation up till the dry wall went on. If you run a poly get 4 mil clear.
