    Re: doubt

    A statement with the word more needs a comparison.

    Don't spend more time in the bathroom than you need to.

    You need to quote you example sentences. Do you mean:
    1. "Don't spend more time in bathroom, Sir. I mean can we use with hog."
    I have heard such usage OR
    2. "Don't spend more time in bathroom."
    Sir, I mean can we use with hog. I have heard such usage.

    Either way, though, in this case your second sentence makes no sense.

    Re: doubt

    "Don't hog the bathroom," sounds natural in idiomatic American English. To hog something means to take more than your fair share.
