I use it a lot but sometimes it can be a bit irritating. For example, if I am letting the car "slide" in slow moving traffic without pressing the accelerator, the Auto Hold can sometimes kick in and then the car comes to an abrupt halt. The sound of the brakes caused by that sudden stop is not pleasant as well....

Overall, for some reasons, I think it is probably safer to not use it and only use it on hills since your car can slide backwards without Auto Hold.
