Did the Russians treat the Hungarian. Bulgarian and Romanian people harder than say the Polish after the war?

They didn't have to, the local communists in each case (Dimitrov, Gheorghe-Dej and Rakosi) treated their own people bad enough for them!
To be honest, there was a lot of local variations. The Bulgarians and Romanians had smaller war reparations to pay than the Hungarians (the crippling debt forced on Hungary was one of the root causes of the 1956 uprising) and none of those countries' economies were as heavily exploited as the Poles and Czechs.
All of the occupied eastern European countries were subjected to hard line Stalinist governments, though. Bulgaria still had one in 1989.
