Where to Purchase Direct Train tickets for overnight train?

I'm trying to get tickets for the overnight train from Budapest to Krakow in Dec.
They show me the train on many sights, but can't buy them. I thought I would be able to get them on Rick Steves site, but doesn't look like it. I get them on Polrail.com, but seems like a big mark up (~$140/person). It looks like I can on https://czech-transport.com/ too, but it is so much cheaper (~$113/person) and I'm not finding any recent reviews to make is seem OK. Has anyone used them or some other site. Do we need to book ahead to get the 2 person sleeper?

Thanks for any advise here.

MAV does not sell tickets for that train on-line. (It is not even shown in their planner).

The only way to book this train is at a train station...

An alternative would be to travel via Vienna and book on www.oebb.at
