The site is safe, but the files off it might not be.

Like all file hosting/sharing sites, hackers or uploaders of the files might packed it with malware. So there is a risk there.

Always scan whatever you download with your antivirus to be safe.

I would have said
"Always scan whatever you download with your antivirus to be safer."

Downloading stuff from such sites is never really SAFE, new (day0) infections may not be noticed by your AV software.
