It may or may not...if there is some acid in the solution, then sulfur is a byproduct of the equation, which will lead to a sulfur smell. However, I don't feel like it would cause the smell, without at least a catalytic amount of acid.

When water is mixed with sodium thiosulfate the surrounding area temperature decreases causing the temperature to become, colder. for example; the water is at 22.5 C when you mix it with sodium thiosulfate the temperature could decrease up to 19.5 C this is because sodium thiosulfate an endothermic reaction which makes new bonds with the water and the sodium thiosulfate

Sodium metal is very reactive and would explode when in contact with water and produce hydrogen gas.
