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 . Adjacent chains are linked into a two-dimensional layer by a combination of intermolecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds and C—H⋯π interactions
