Public rooms can be joined by anybody on your HipChat group, while private rooms can only be joined by the members of the room.  Only a private room admin can invite more people into a private room.

Additionally, the member list in a public room is dynamic based upon if a user(s) has the room open, where as a private room's member list is static. 

This functionality is reflected when an @all or an @here is performed.
