DSD is 7 and DSS is 5. They share a room and they love it. They are here with us 3 nights a week.
We feel that we need to split them before DSD hits 9 or so as she may need some space.
That actually will require us to move house though!

My 3 kids (school aged) share a room at the moment as I only have a 2bdr place. We have good and bad moments, mostly good though I think, they play together a lot and love going to bed in the same room, they chat to each other and keep each other company as they go to sleep. There has been the odd occasion where two were away, and the one left got really lonely and nervous and came out to fall asleep where I was was.
The downsides is the space for their stuff, it's a bit squishy in there, also 3 x the mess in one room , but mostly it's the clash of personalities and habits. My eldest is very particular about his things, my youngest adores him and his things but isn't as careful, so we have a lot of fights regarding someone wrecking someone else's things. My eldest also likes time alone, which can be difficult as you could imagine. I also have my DD in there, so give it a couple of years and I think my eldest boy needs his own room or a room without girls.
All in all though it works ok for us. They're just thrilled we have somewhere to live tbh.

My DD's (5 and 3.5) share a room. It's a small room, so they really only sleep and get dressed in there!
DD2 goes to bed first and when she's asleep DD1 goes to bed. There's shenanigans if I put them to bed at the same time. They've been sharing for over 2.5 years now.

My 2 boys share a bedroom. They are 5 & 8. They both sleep in my room so their room is really just storage for their toys, clothes and junk.

My almost 5 year old and 2.5 year old share a room and have since our youngest was 21 months. It works well so far, sometimes they keep each other awake though which is annoying.
DD2 stayed at my mums last night and when it was time for bed DD1 said she missed her sister which was nice to hear as she rarely says that!

DD 8 years and DS 6 years. They love it! They were in separate rooms up till about 18 months ago and wanted to share. When DD sleeps over at a friends house DS gets very sad.
