You can take a look at this tool to download the service:

Download ArcGIS Online Feature Service or ArcGIS Server Feature/Map Service 

Also, take a look at these blogs on how to overwrite a service.  One way uses python 2.x, and the other uses the new ArcGIS Python API (which uses python 3.x):

Hi Stuart,

You can connect to ArcGIS Online from ArcMap and add the hosted feature service from Catalog window > My Hosted Service.  Next you can create a local copy for editing:

Hi Jake,

thanks for the quick reply i tried that but i get an error, saying it "can't create a local copy" ideally i am looking for a way to do it via python so i can get it to process the data overnight without any intervention

thanks

Stu
