Not by default. I am using the following advice (requires helm and f.el): 

(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))
