You can set the below Hue configuration in CM 

Hue Service → Configuration → Service-Wide → Advanced → Hue Service Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for hue_safety_valve.ini and add the following:

[desktop]
enable_download=false

And then restart Hue.

You cannot disable the download option in Hue per user. A more plausible way to not allow any specific path download would be to simply deny the user permission to read or write to the HDFS directory itself.
