There's just no reason to go there. Neighbouring shabby Arshan is Switzerland in comparison to this squalor. USSR at its very-very worst.
Filth, dust, myriads of cigarette butts, packs of scabby dirty stray dogs, their droppings and cow dung everywhere. Shabby shacks selling ugly stuff, roaring low-quality "boom-boom" music and a proud sign saying "Multi-juice bar" - in Cyrillic!!!
Bathing pavilion is horrendous - it's sickening to walk there even with your shoes on. Visitors are packed in swimming areas like commuters in Tokyo underground in rush hours and - yes! - a slight fragrance of feces as well as something musty flying in the air...
It was amusing to hear from our guide that before it had been even worse. Our fantasy could not tell us what she meant.
So don't waste your time and money. There's treasure you walk upon, Buryatia (I mean these hot springs), but you not only fail to benefit from it - you turn it into turd!
Nauseating place.
