I have the same philosophy...it's so easy to bounce around I'm never quite sure why people spend so long in one place. I love London and we go often, but my GF will often stay for 7-10 days with some day trips to a place like Bath maybe, but I always jump about at least once as it's just crazy not to.

Budapest might be my favorite city in Europe. I need to get back there and also see more of Croatia...love that country. That's a great trip you have planned.
Never been before but loved Prague and feel like it's going to be similar. Can live like a damn King in Eastern Europe for the same cost it takes to just get by in London/Paris/Dublin.

I went to Prague first, and after never understood why people rave so much about it while neglecting Budapest after I went there. For me Prague felt small, and Budapest is more spread out with a lot to explore and just as nice (in my opinion, but "nice" in a different way). I felt like it was a bombed out Paris - it's not pristine, lacks the pretentious nature because of that, but equally amazing. Plus, you can find some AMAZING AirBnBs for prices that don't make any sense.

Prague is so condensed that if you go at the wrong time of the year the "touristy" areas are a nightmare...I do love Prague though, it's beautiful (in case it seems like I'm trashing the place). :)

Prague might have an edge on beer, and escorts, but otherwise, Budapest all the way for me.

Can confirm that we got a really great looking airbnb in the middle of pest for like 50 or 60 bucks.

I wasn't a huge fan of Budapest because I felt that it was dirty (although I had spent the preceding week in Vienna, so anyplace is a dump compared to Vienna)

I can attest that Budapest is incredibly affordable.
