The title compound, C8H8Br2O2, was synthesized from the hydrolysis of 1,4-dibromo-2,3-bis­(bromo­meth­yl)benzene. One intra­molecular O—H⋯O and two intra­molecular C—H⋯Br inter­actions occur. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked into a chain running parallel to [010]. Adjacent chains are linked into a two-dimensional layer by a combination of inter­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds and C—H⋯π inter­actions
