cheapest route from sarajevo to budapest
I I know that I took a train from Zagreb to Sarajevo, so it can't be so bad. It wasn't a bad trip as I don't remember it being awful.
2nd class tickets are just fine.
From/To Hungary A train now leaves Budapest (Déli pu. station) daily at 09:56, arriving in Sarajevo at 21:20. One-way ticket costs more than the return ticket (€53,20). There is a dining car, but it is only operational until the train reaches Pécs and only takes Hungarian Forint. Bring some food as you otherwise will not have access to buy any for the duration of the trip after Pécs, which is over 9 hours. Typically, it departs from platform 1 and the first two cars are for Sarajevo, which may not be hooked up when the initial train arrives. So wait and do not panic. You will be bothered at least four times for your passport, and around four times for your ticket. The return train departs Sarajevo daily at 06:55 for Budapest, via Osijek and Pécs, costing 105.90 KM. It arrives at Déli pu. station in Budapest at 18:10.

This seems about right. If you get a sleeper, get one on top, and put your head by the door so you can hand your passport to the customs people without getting up. Top bunks are better. More cramped, but... people can sit down below you if they are so inclined.
Prices for eastern european trains are low compared to the west, and tickets can be gotten at the ticket counter the day before.
Buses to Sarajevo-
There seems to be no way to get the schedule via the Budapest eurolines page, and the Bosnia-Herznogovia eurolines page is in Bosnian, but...
Their price to Budapest is 150 Euros, so it looks like the train is cheaper.
