I use the code below to attach directories and allow multiple selection
while attaching files. Also, if more people are interested in this kind
of functionality, I can write a simple patch. It's just a matter of
applying #'directory-file-name to the selected file name in the
interactive spec of the org-attach-attach.

(defvar yant/org-attach-default-source "~/Downloads/"
  "Default directory to attach the files from.")

(define-advice org-attach-attach (:around (oldfun files &rest args) start-from-default-directory)
  "Look for new attachments from `yant/org-attach-default-source' directory instead of `default-directory'."
    (mapcar #'directory-file-name (helm-read-file-name "File to keep as an attachment:"
						       :initial-input (or (progn
									    (require 'dired-aux)
									  (and yant/org-attach-default-source
									       (f-slash yant/org-attach-default-source))
						       :marked-candidates t))
  (unless (listp files) (setq files (list files)))
  (mapc (lambda (file) (apply oldfun file args)) files))
