I don't usually suggest the crate, but really with some dogs it's the way to go. Make sure it's big and roomy enough, with a nice soft blanky and toys. Some dogs feel comforted with a TV or radio on in the background too. Our dogs are good alone in the house as long as things like remote controls and fragile things are up out of the way. We had a border collie once though who chewed through electric wires, carpets, shoes, toys, books like a cyclone, if I knew better then I would have gotten a crate.

Ahh we don't have a toilet in our bathroom, it's separate haha maybe not then, a crate sounds like it would work best. At least it can help teach them to be calm as well - the energy will still be there but they'll be just as happy to sleep as run after a ball.
