Is torsocks still a safe way to do this? A lot of the documentation
(such as it is) is several years old.
I prefer to run an SSH hidden service on the VPS.

I'd tend to agree; if you control the endpoint, set it up as a hidden
service rather than having Tor exit node involved at all.

While running hidden services alongside non-hidden services introduces
some risks, most of these are less significant when connecting to SSH
on a server that you control.

I don't think I phrased my question very well. I'm not running a hidden server. I'm just logging in to a shared VPS to ftp. etc, rather than logging in to a control panel over HTTPS.

I just want a simple way to do "ssh IP port" but with Tor.
