Why are you using localhost in your URL? – Colin 't Hart Jan 27 '14 at 9:28

The URL you are currently using is for the report manager.
Report RDLs are deployed to the report server URL, so change the path to http://localhost/reportserver.

Alternatively, you can find the correct URL for your server configuration in the Reporting Services Configuration Manager > Web Service URL (generally located in the Start menu > All Programs > Microsoft SQL Server {Version} > Configuration Tools).
