When you are hidden, people without enough adventuring.perception will not be able to see you in the room. Also, if you do things that are visible (while successfully staying hidden), they will see that "someone" does those things instead of seeing who. (People who do have enough adventuring.perception will see you and your actions normally, but with "(hiding)" after your name.)
You can "hide stop" to come out of hiding, or "unhide" to do so covertly. Some actions may also bring you out of hiding involuntarily if you don't have high enough skills to execute them covertly: souls, manipulating your inventory, getting things from the room, fumbling things, and listing in shops can all take you out of hiding. Some conditions, like the effects of certain poisons and squelching from being wet, give room chats and bring you out of hiding.
You can't hide during combat.
