If you feel fine, then it is fine. Some people need their 8h or more, some don't.

There's no set ideal amount of sleep. What is restful for one person isn't for another. You feel you're getting too little, then maybe you are. There are lots of tips out there for ensuring a better night's sleep; do some searching.

Depends on you - sleep "around" and see how 5,6,7,8,9 whores hours feel like and where the sweet spot is.
I've slept from 6 to 15 hours and I believe in the 7-8 range... it's like with reps, anything goes but not really.
Absolute optimum would be added naps after food intake.

7.5 to 8.5 works best for me.  I can only sleep 6, then I wake up hungry, stay up an hour, then crash again for another 1-2 hours when schedule allows.

"The first thing experts will tell you about sleep is that there is no "magic number." Not only do different age groups need different amounts of sleep, but sleep needs are also individual. Just like any other characteristics you are born with, the amount of sleep you need to function best may be different for you than for someone who is of the same age and gender. While you may be at your absolute best sleeping seven hours a night, someone else may clearly need nine hours to have a happy, productive life."

I have to add that research says oversleeping, and oversleeping started at 8h+, is actually harmful, as in dying sooner among things.

i get a good 7 hours of sleep a night.
just avoid caffeine and sugars late in the day and have some warm milk, it takes a while to settle in but when it does its worth it.

"Death. Multiple studies have found that people who sleep nine or more hours a night have significantly higher death rates than people sleeping seven to eight hours a night. No specific reason for this correlation has been determined. But researchers found that depression and low socioeconomic status are also associated with longer sleep. They speculate these factors could be related to the observed increase in mortality for people who sleep too much."

The 9 hours has been brought back to 8 hours or more FYI.

most studies have shown that less than 7 hours of sleep per day increases the risk of an earlier death overall

i do not sleep much either but force myself to get 50-60 hours per week no matter what... often i make up time on the weekend with a couple of naps

Anything less than 6 and i feel like shit. Anything more than 9 and i feel like shit. Also i try to go to sleep and wake up at the same range every night. Typically i'm asleep by 10:30pm and i wake up at 5:30 automatically. I don't even set an alarm anymore. 7-8 hours and i feel perfect in the morning.
