SSH should be safe but there are a few things of which to be aware. Make sure you know the server is the one you meant to connect. Remember the first time you connect to an SSH server and it asks you to verify the key and cache it? I would never do that over a public network to avoid man in the middle attacks. If possible, use certificates instead of password authentication.
SSH tunneling is handy for private browsing when a VPN isn't available.
