The mol­ecule of the title compound, C8H8Br2O, is approximately planar with a maximum deviation of 0.063 (1) Å for one of the Br atoms. In the crystal, adjacent mol­ecules are joined inter­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming chains parallel to [010]. The structure also features a short Br⋯Br inter­action of 3.362 (1) Å
