Sleeper train from Budapest to Prague

One of my goals in Europe is to ride a Sleeper train. I booked the EN 476 from Budapest to Prague.

The lady I booked it with at the train station told me the reservation I made was for a bed (rather than a seat), but I want to verify because there was a language barrier and the reservation was so cheap -- only 10€.

 

For context, I have Eurail first class.

Attached a picture of the ticket below.

It is a couchette carriage indeed :)

You’ll have the bottom couchette (best one!).

That carriage is indeed a couchette carriage.

Oh great, thank you so much! I'm literally traveling to Budapest just to take this train, so it feels important to verify!

 

 

It might be worth clarifying that the couchette which you've booked is the cheaper "bed" option: here's a good explanation of the difference between a couchette and a full sleeper:
