I was told by another tourist that there are overnight minibuses to Harar that leave at Piazza. No idea about the prices but will definately be affordable. Just do not expect comfort.

from my experiences of ethiopia there are not 'bus companies' as such... the bus station is not like a regular station where you can go and buy your tickets. It is a free-for-all.. basically it is quite easy to find a bus (we travelled mainly in mini buses as they are quicker- supposedly) as the minute you enter the grounds of the bus station you will be mobbed by men trying to get you to take their bus to your destination. Im sorry i cannot be more helpful but you will understand what i mean when you get there. The only advice i could say to you is dont accept the first price given and also be wary of hoaxes.. if you are opting to take the public bus people will try telling you that it isnt going where you want to go, just so you will pay them more to take you there privatly... the drivers of the buses often have no english and may not understand the destination if your prounciation is off.
