IMHO, we have always used rsync for backup purposes & moving repositories across servers and never faced any problem till date so copying works fine as well.
A third option is to use svnsync.
svnsync and using dump and load will not copy the repository configuration files or hook scripts or preserve locks. I believe a hotcopy will preserve those. You may want to test all three methods to see which is right for you.
