There is a slightly higher population of homelessness in the Haight so, compared to some other neighborhoods, it may be considered less safe. However, I would not at all consider the Haight a dangerous neighborhood. As long as you take common sense precautions-- lock your car, don't hang around the parks alone at night, and generally, just be mindful of your surroundings, it is a perfectly safe neighborhood.
